Deciding to plunge into a medical franchise opportunity is a big step, and it can be extremely frightening if you don’t have any prior experience in the medical field. You might even wonder if you should be pursuing your franchise dream at all. Luckily, the American Family Care franchise model is built for those without prior healthcare experience, and is designed to accommodate those from a variety of different backgrounds. You will, however, need to possess the right mindset, and be prepared to put in a significant amount of work. We don’t expect you to have all the answers in the beginning — that’s why you must know when to take advantage of our suite of resources, designed to make the franchise process smoother. If you are thoroughly prepared for franchise ownership, possess the right temperament, and take advantage of our support resources, you’ll be in pretty good shape.
Before you decide to pursue a medical franchise opportunity with us, you should have a complete understanding of the investment. We keep our startup fees as low as possible, so you can open your franchise without breaking the bank. You don’t need to be rich, or possess a wealth of medical industry knowledge to become an AFC franchisee, but you do need to be prepared to pay our $60,000 franchise fee, and the ongoing royalty payments. Entering AFC franchising with a complete picture of the investment will give you an advantage as you start your business, and put you on stronger financial ground.
The Right Characteristics
When we’re evaluating new franchisees, we look at their personality as much as their actual credentials. After all, you will be dealing with employees and patients of varying needs and temperaments, and must be sensitive to patient needs. This is why we look for franchisees who are compassionate, good communicators, and empathetic with patients and staff. Above all else, we ask our new franchisees to be highly motivated, personable, good listeners and learners, and passionate about playing a vital role in their communities.
Take Advantage of our Training
Sometimes entrepreneurs can be reluctant to accept any guidelines or training procedures put in place by a franchisor. While we encourage independent thinking at AFC, it’s also important that you are willing to learn from us, take advantage of our support and resources, and know when to ask for help. When you invest in our medical franchise opportunity, you will be provided with an extensive suite of resources, including: Franchise Business Consultants, a pre-opening package, customized business management software for patient intake, billing services provided by approved vendors, a comprehensive operations manual, marketing materials, licensing and credentialing assistance, and ongoing training programs aimed at professional development. Don’t take these resources for granted.
