American Family Care Jumps 60 Spots in 2023 Entrepreneur Franchise 500® List

Nation’s Largest Urgent Care Provider Ranks No. 81 After Milestone Accomplishments in 2022

January 11, 2023 // // BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of accessible primary care, urgent care, and occupational medicine, enters the new year with yet another major distinction as a top franchise opportunity. Fresh off a year full of milestones, AFC stands among the top one hundred franchise brands recognized in Entrepreneur’s 2023 Franchise 500®.

American Family Care was listed at No. 81 in the newly-released 2023 rankings - a jump of 60 spots from the previous Entrepreneur list.

“The past year was full of validation for our entire system and its claim as one of the top franchise brands regardless of industry,” said Bruce Irwin, MD, Founder and CEO of American Family Care. “Rising 60 spots in such a heralded list speaks volumes for how American Family Care has grown, and shows we are poised for more success after the achievements of last year.”

Not only did American Family Care celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2022, but it also reached a major milestone when its 300th location opened in November. Those milestones set a foundation of growth that continues into 2023 with this coveted franchise ranking.

More than 1,300 brands applied for this year’s Entrepreneur Franchise 500® and were rated and ranked on performance in areas including growth, financial strength and stability, and overall brand power.

“The companies named to our 44th annual Franchise 500 list represent some of the most innovative, creative, and trusted brands across many industries and highlight what it takes to build the kind of momentum that drives long-lasting success,” says Entrepreneur editor in chief Jason Feifer.

“2022 was such a thrilling time, as AFC opened 41 new locations in the last fiscal year,” said Paige Robinson, AFC’s VP of Franchise Development. “We also accomplished our moonshot goal of 75 units awarded in that timespan—the second year in a row setting a new brand record for deals. Now, with team additions made in marketing, operations, and real estate and construction, support for new and existing AFC franchisees is at an all-time high as 2023 begins.”
