American Family Care Smashes Franchise Development Records
January 05, 2022 // Franchising.com // BIRMINGHAM Ala. - American Family Care (AFC), a provider of urgent care and accessible primary care, announces record-setting sales and growth in 2021. The impressive streak started prior to the pandemic and shows no sign of slowing down in 2022 - which marks the company’s 40th year in business.
AFC closed an incredible 58 deals in 2021 - a 132 percent increase in the number of franchises sold the previous year.
“Thanks to our determined leadership team and a heightened demand for healthcare services, American Family Care has been on an incredible trajectory of growth,” says Sean Hart, Vice President of Sales and Development at American Family Care.
In addition to an increase in franchise sales, the number of patients who turn to AFC for care is also on the rise. The urgent care franchise logged 6.5 million patient visits in 2021 - a company record. That is up from 2.7 million visits in 2020 and 1.9 million in 2019.
2022 will mark the 40th anniversary of American Family Care - a concept of non-emergency urgent care clinics pioneered by the brand’s visionary founder, Dr. Bruce Irwin. Thanks to his foresight, AFC delivers affordable and accessible medical care to communities across the country and opened the door to entrepreneurs interested in running a successful healthcare business.
“The milestones we’ve achieved would not have been possible if the AFC business model was designed only for those with a medical background,” adds Hart.
In addition to franchise sale achievements, the AFC brand has accumulated numerous accolades for its franchise growth in 2021, including: ranking #82 in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list and on Franchise Journal’s Top Brands of 2021 list.
