American Family Care Climbs the Prestigious Entrepreneur Franchise 500 List

Nation’s Largest Urgent Care Provider Ranks at Top of Health Services Category

February 05, 2024 // // BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of accessible primary care, urgent care, and occupational medicine, begins the new year celebrating the remarkable achievement of ranking among top franchises on Entrepreneur’s 2024 Franchise 500®. After a year of celebrating dozens of clinic openings, AFC leads the urgent care industry as Entrepreneur’s No. 1 miscellaneous health services and among their top 100 overall brands.

American Family Care is listed at No. 71 in the newly released 2024 rankings, climbing 10 spots from the previous Entrepreneur list.

“Earning the top spot in our category and rising in the ranks on this prestigious franchise ranking is a clear indicator of our brand’s strength and the exceptional work of our entire team,” said Randy Johansen, CEO of AFC. “We are excited to build on this momentum and continue our expansion, bringing quality healthcare to more communities in 2024.”

In 2023, AFC continued its impressive growth trajectory by opening 71 new clinics, resulting in a total of 365 locations across the United States. “Last year was a landmark year for AFC, not just in terms of expansion but also in solidifying our position as a leader in the urgent care industry. Our move up the Franchise 500 list reflects our commitment to excellence and our focus on the future. We’re now more equipped than ever to support our franchisees as we head into 2024,” said Johansen.

In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s ranking formula also continues to evolve. The editorial team researches and assesses several factors, including costs.

“Every brand on the Franchise 500 has its own unique story, but they all collectively make the same statement: Franchising is strong and resilient, is full of innovation and opportunity, and provides a powerful entrepreneurial path for many people,” says Jason Feifer, editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur magazine.

The list can also be seen in the January/February 2024 issue of Entrepreneur, available on newsstands now.
