The support offered to franchisees is one of the most attractive benefits of investing in a franchise. While they are many franchise opportunities out there, especially in the healthcare field, it’s important to understand what sets American Family Care apart. Whether it’s our franchise support consultants, our pre-opening package, or our extensive training and marketing services, we make sure you’re well-equipped for success within the urgent care industry. When you invest in an urgent care business with us, we want you to have the freedom and the confidence to hit the ground running from day one. To do that, we know that you need access to the appropriate resources that allow for education, training, support, and franchise growth. Here’s what really differentiates an American Family Care business from other franchise opportunities.
The Early Stages of an Urgent Care Business
The first step in our process is ‘pre-opening’, which sets important tasks to prepare you for the opening of your franchise, along with important training objectives. At this stage, you’ll be fully engrossed in our culture and begin your training, which includes a two-and-a-half-day training experience at our corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, and a corporate visit by our team to your franchise site.
A successful franchisee will always stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends, technology, certifications, and more, so we make sure to provide you with a wide range of professional development opportunities such as continuing education via regular conferences, webinars, conference calls, written modules, and other media. We also provide module-based training, so our center staff can continue to enhance their skills and to deliver the level of excellent patient care that AFC patients have come to expect.
Franchise Support Tools
We offer a plethora of support tools to our franchisees, which are essential for running a successful urgent care business. To start, we assign you a franchise support consultant and a full pre-opening package. This package is designed to equip you with all the materials you may need to guide your business toward success. It includes customized business management software, billing services, a comprehensive operations manual, marketing materials, ongoing training programs for professional development, and recruiting services. We also work with several national vendor partners, who will assist you with everything from choosing a location and real estate all the way through construction and setup.
