If you’ve caught the entrepreneurial fever, you aren’t alone.
Just years removed from the worst economic recession Americans have seen since the Great Depression, the economy is now thriving. Investors are spending more and more money on young startups and intelligent, savvy entrepreneurs. And as the unemployment rate drops, people are making more money and have more disposable income.
In short, it’s a great time to be a business owner. But the question you’re likely asking yourself is “what type of business should I invest in?” You know you want to be your own boss – maybe you’ve even done it once or twice before. But at the core of it, you’re a business-savvy individual with an entrepreneurial spirit, looking for a fresh start and new venture.
That’s where American Family Care comes in.
Here’s a look at why franchising with AFC is the right choice for you – and an even better one than you might realize.
What Is American Family Care
American Family Care started as a single clinic in 1982, and has blossomed into a leading medical provider with nearly 200 locations nationwide – and a plan to reach over 500 centers in the next five years.
Our model revolves around a patient-first attitude, as we provide an alternative to emergency rooms or times when your primary care physician is unavailable. With night & weekend hours and our attention to detail, our urgent care facilities have made us an industry leader and a patient favorite throughout the country.
Not every patient that goes to the emergency room should be there, and while many of those patients understand that, they often have nowhere else to turn. At AFC, we offer primary care, urgent care, minor emergency treatment, and occupational medicine.
But I Don’t Have Medical Experience
That’s fine! Believe it or not, we actually don’t require you to have any experience in medical care in order to open an American Family Care franchise.
So what are we looking for in a franchisee? We look for the motivated self-starters with business management and sales skills, coupled with a simple desire to make a difference in people’s lives.
Through an in-depth discovery process, we’ll work with you so that both sides can determine if AFC is the right fit.
Of course, physicians and medical professionals who share similar qualities will find AFC to be a terrific investment, too.
