American Family Care Franchise

Health care services

The first American Family Care Clinic (AFC) was opened in 1982 by D.
Bruce Irwin, M.D. Since then, our model of “putting the patient first”
and providing an alternative, non-emergency room option for urgent care
has made us an industry leader and a patient favorite at our clinics
throughout the country. All AFC centers provide access to primary care,
urgent care, minor emergency treatment, and occupational medicine.The demand for comprehensive and convenient health care services increases
every year.
People want and need access to health care on their terms -
without endless waiting in hospital emergency rooms or staggering bills.
Healthcare franchises have rapidly become a popular alternative to traditional
means of seeking urgent care and primary care medical services. The
United States public health care system is increasingly strained by
factors such as a rapidly aging population, the rising costs of
insurance, and an increasing percentage of the population without
adequate health insurance or convenient access to medical care. Private
healthcare franchises address these issues by creating an affordable and
convenient healthcare option which patients can turn to without an
appointment, a long wait, an unaffordable bill, or a lengthy commute.

The total initial investment necessary to begin operation of a
franchised business (in which you are not converting an existing urgent
care business), ranges from $1,008,000 - $1,441,500. This includes
$190,000 - $210,000 that must be paid to the franchisor or its
If you are converting an existing urgent care facility to be
an American Family Care center that you will manage, the total
initial investment necessary to begin operation of a franchised business
ranges from $114,500 - $480,500. This includes $45,000 that must be
paid to the franchisor or affiliate. If you sign an Area Development
Agreement to develop a certain number of franchised businesses, you must

franchise and a non-refundable deposit of $10,000 for each additional
franchise to be developed. The number of units for an Area Development
Agreement will be negotiated between the parties but will be no less
than 2. The initial franchise fee for subsequent franchises under the
Area Development Agreement is $45,000.
