New Orleans-Based Coffeehouse Chain to Award Franchise License to Deserving Veteran

NEW ORLEANS — PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans, a New Orleans-based coffeehouse that demonstrates better beans, superior roasting techniques, and pure passion for the art of coffee-making matter, has announced its second annual Veteran Franchise License Giveaway which will award one deserving veteran a PJ’s Coffee franchise license.

The popular coffeeshop is looking for military veterans to join the ever-growing $100 billion a year global coffee industry. PJ’s Coffee seeks hardworking, passionate applicants who align with its core values of delivering best-in-class coffee with the highest regards to service and hospitality.

If interested, veterans should visit to enter their contact information and receive a franchise brochure. Once received, they will need to submit a one-minute video explaining how military service has prepared them to be a PJ’s Coffee owner. The application is now open and will run through December 31. The winner will be announced in January 2019.

“PJ’s Coffee is grateful for every veteran’s service to this country and is honored to provide a sustainable career for those returning home from duty,” said David Mesa, Chief Development Officer of PJ’s Coffee.  “After awarding our first franchise license to Marine Corps veteran, Jeff Hateley, last year it became clear this was an initiative PJ’s Coffee had to continue. Jeff has blossomed as a formidable entrepreneur and we hope this annual giveaway will empower other veterans to embrace their entrepreneurial spirit.”

Hateley was chosen for his diverse military and professional background and infectious can-do attitude, Hateley served in the Marine Corps from 2001 to 2006 and specialized in Tactical Data Networks. During his service, he was deployed in Iraq and Japan and took on the role of a Primary Marksmanship Instructor. After serving, Hateley went on to receive his Bachelor’s from California State University Fullerton. After winning the license giveaway he opened his PJ’s Coffee location in Rock Hill, South Carolina earlier this year.

“I am forever grateful for the opportunity PJ’s Coffee has afforded me,” said Hateley. “I dreamt of owning my own business and with their backing my dream has become a reality. Via my franchise, I have been able to advance my career, engage the community and provide a superior coffee-house experience.”

PJ’s Coffee serves a wide variety of iced, frozen, hot, cold brew, and nitro-infused coffees using only the top one percent of Arabica beans, as well as organic tea and fresh breakfast pastries. The brand’s famous iced coffees are brewed daily using a special cold-drip process that protects the flavor and strength of the beans, while producing a coffee that is two thirds less acidic – a process pioneered by PJ’s Coffee founder, Phyllis Jordan.

A prospective franchisee can expect a total investment range between $178,900$373,000 for non-traditional franchise units, and $190,900$566,000 for traditional units. The operating model and menu is adaptable to any environment with different options including kiosks and free-standing locations with a drive-thru, ranging from a few hundred square feet up to 2200 square feet. PJ’s Coffee offers a proven franchise structure with strategic corporate support.

The PJ’s Coffee brand is passionate about giving back to the veteran community in any way it can. The company is an International Franchise Association VetFran member, proudly offering qualified veterans a 20 percent discount on the initial franchise fee.

American Family Care Opens 200th Location

Former White House Physician On Hand to Dedicate Clinic, Recognize Veterans

NEW YORK and BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, occupational medicine and accessible primary care will today open its 200th urgent care clinic. Located at 5546 Broadway in the Kingsbridge neighborhood of The Bronx, New York, the state of the art facility is independently owned and operated by Dan and Vicki Purugganan. It is the fourth clinic to open in The Bronx during the past 4 years, and the first of more than 20 additional locations scheduled to open in the tristate area during the next 36 months.

On hand for the clinic’s official grand opening ceremony will be AFC’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Bruce Irwin, who pioneered the urgent care concept nearly 40 years ago. “Whether operating corporately owned clinics, supporting a local entrepreneur through our franchising model, or by partnering with local hospital systems, pursing our mission to provide the best health care possible is our primary focus”, according to Irwin. “And, while our continued growth is gratifying, it simply represents the fact that AFC’s patient-centric model is at the forefront of a revolution in health care”.

Also on hand will be AFC’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Benjamin Barlow, who recently joined AFC directly from the White House Medical Unit, where he personally served the health care needs of three current or former U.S. Presidents – George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump. Dr. Barlow’s multi-year tenure as Senior White House Physician was the culmination of more than a decade of service to our country in the United States Air Force, where he attained the rank of Major.

The opening of AFC’s 200th clinic coincides with the observance of Veterans Day. In honor of the occasion, AFC’s newest clinic will provide no cost flu shots to veterans throughout the day. According to data from the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics, a recent survey shows only 49 percent of veterans receive a flu vaccination each year. Compounding the problem, of the 19.4 million veterans in the U.S., approximately 750,000 have no insurance coverage.

“Not only are we excited to open our newest clinic, we are excited to help our nation’s veterans by providing no cost flu shots”, says Barlow. “Approximately three-quarters of the U.S. Veteran population do not use VA services. What’s more, veterans tend to be older and have more chronic health problems than the general adult population, which may place them at greater risk of complications from influenza”, continued Barlow.

The opening of its 200th clinic is an important milestone for AFC. Named a “best buy in franchising” by Franchise Times , AFC has nearly doubled its number of franchise units during the past 48 months. In addition to franchise and corporate locations, the company also operates joint ventures and other partnerships with local hospital systems to provide a high-quality continuum of care for its patients.

About American Family Care:

Founded by Dr. Bruce Irwin with a single location in 1982, American Family Care has pioneered the concept of non-emergency room urgent care. With its 2013 acquisition of the Doctors Express, AFC has become the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine, with 200 clinics and 600 in-network physicians caring for nearly 3 million patients a year. Ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S., AFC’s stated mission is to provide the best healthcare possible, in a kind and caring environment, while respecting the rights of all patients, in an economical manner, at times and locations convenient to the patient.

American Family Care Honors Veterans with Free Flu Shots

2018-11-08T19:23:43-05:00November 8th, 2018|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s leading provider of urgent care, accessible primary care, and occupational medicine, announced today it will offer military veterans free flu shots on Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11. The announcement is an extension of AFC’s ongoing effort to promote flu prevention in the United States and comes on the heels of the company’s annual National Flu Prevention Week campaign.

The U.S. military was the first institution to establish a universal influenza vaccination policy, which dates back to the early 1940s – many decades before widespread immunization of healthy young people was recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other international health officials. Today, their goal is to exceed 90 percent immunization of all military personnel by mid-December each year. Despite this effort to mitigate the outbreak of flu among active duty and reserve personnel, veterans remain at risk.

Fast Facts: Veterans, Health and Influenza

  • Among the 19.4 million veterans in the U.S., approximately 750,000 have no insurance coverage.
  • Veterans of the U.S. armed forces tend to be older and have more chronic health problems than the general adult population, which may place them at greater risk of complications from influenza.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has established a vaccination rate of 80 percent as the national goal for seasonal influenza vaccination. However, according to data from the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics, a recent survey shows only 49 percent of veterans received a flu vaccination.
  • The prevalence of influenza vaccination among VA system users is approximately 75 percent, although approximately three-quarters of the U.S. Veteran population does not use VA services.
  • A study recently published in the journal Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology found that only 1.3 percent of U.S. Veterans Affairs hospitals mandate flu shots for their employees.

More broadly, influenza outbreaks occur nearly every year, and cost the U.S. economy an estimated 71–167 billion dollars per year in health services use and lost productivity. Influenza-related diseases also cause an estimated 225,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths annually in the U.S., mostly among chronically ill or elderly people. “With more than 190 medical centers in 26 states seeing 3 million patients a year, AFC deals with the flu as much or more than any other health care provider outside of the federal government, so we understand the impact it can have on our society,” said Dr. Benjamin Barlow, Chief Medical Officer of American Family Care. “With dozens of clinics near military bases across the U.S., we also understand the effect the flu has on veterans and their families. So, we want to do everything we can to serve those who have served our country,” concluded Barlow.

Veterans interested in obtaining a free flu shot on Sunday, November 11, 2018, are encouraged to visit to find their nearest AFC clinic.

Cartridge World Offers Top Tech Tips For Small Business Owners

2018-11-07T20:34:49-05:00November 7th, 2018|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

MCHENRY, Ill. — When it comes to running a small businesses, technology troubles aren’t just bound to occur – their guaranteed. Whether it’s due to a lack of an IT department or the result of just getting a small business off the ground, technology catastrophes can be frequent and frustrating. In an effort to help small business owners reduce common tech mistakes, Cartridge World, a global franchise network and recognized leader in printers, printer services and cartridges, is offering their top insights for tech success.

Whether it be optimizing your printer settings or installing protective firewall, Cartridge World’s network of more than 300 stores are known as the local experts here to help. By taking the time to understand each customer’s specific needs, Cartridge World seeks to help consumers save both time and money.

  • Upgrade Your Wi-Fi – Nothing is as frustrating as a Wi-Fi crash when sending an important email, giving a presentation, uploading important documents, etc. Upgrading your Wi-Fi is one of the simplest ways to take office technology to the next level and ensure less hiccups. Furthermore, place routers as close to computers as possible for optimal strength and speed.
  • Invest in a Multi-Function Printer – Whatever the function of a small business, odds are printing, scanning and copying documents are taking place, and there is no need to have three different machines to handle each of these tasks. Invest in a multi-function printer to have all this functionality in one device while increasing efficiency and saving space.
  • Explore Money-Saving Options: Small businesses can further explore budget-saving printer options such as Cartridge World’s ‘Why Buy A Printer?” program to ensure quality equipment while not breaking the bank. This program allows for companies to receive a business class printer(s) and multifunction devices with all printer maintenance and on-site service included at no additional cost in exchange for the purchasing of toner cartridges at Cartridge World.
  • Increase Security Firewall – Most small businesses have anti-virus software, but the protection shouldn’t stop there. With one in three Americans hacked in the past year, it’s now more important than ever to protect your business. To keep sensitive work documents and communications safe, add different smart internet firewalls to your space to help ensure safety.
  • Evaluate Laptops/Desktops– The average lifespan for desktops and laptops are painfully short (three to eight years for a desktop, two to five years for a laptop). If a desktop/laptop hasn’t been upgraded, is slow, lacking space to store files and is a hassle to install the latest software, it’s most likely time to invest in a new system.
  • Invest in a Backup Drive – To ensure the safety and protection of important documents, operating systems and programs, invest in a backup drive to give your small business piece of mind. Be sure to keep this equipment up to date as this vital tool does have a finite lifespan.

“At Cartridge World, we understand that running a small business is no easy task, which is why we want to help owners and entrepreneurs any way we can,” said Mark Pinner, CEO of Cartridge World North America. “With technology now a vital part of running a business, Cartridge’s Worlds experienced and impartial staff is committed to helping owners and employees prevent complex tech issues from occurring, but are ready to be of assistance when they do.”

With its sights set on adding nearly 3,000 stores to its system by 2019, Cartridge World is looking to expand its presence and clearly define itself as the global leader in ink and toner cartridge sales, printers, printing supplies, and printer maintenance for home and office customers.
