In 1998, Dr. Cassia Portugal started First Choice Pediatrics in a small office next to the Winter Park Hospital.The overwhelming success of returning patients motivated Dr. Portugal to expand her practice by the year 2000. She needed more space, and so she relocated the practice to our main location on Semoran Boulevard. Her next endeavor was to extend services to patients in the Sanford area and opened a new office on Medical Plaza Drive in 2005.
With the success of her first two offices she decided to add two more locations in 2012; Alafaya and Metrowest. In 2014, she opened a fifth office in Kissimmee and a sixth office in Oviedo the following year. First Choice Pediatrics has Board Certified Pediatricians practicing at all six locations across the Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties.
Owning a First Choice Pediatrics provides you an opportunity to partner with an industry leader in a highly competitive industry whose sales grow more and more annually. Do not let the competitive nature of the industry stifle you. Our concept is unlike any other. We have geared our company to provide you with knowledge, support and training that will allow you to effectively meet and surpass any consumer expectations.
We offer two different types of franchise opportunities. You can choose to own a single unit franchise which allows you to operate your own First Choice Pediatrics in a protected territory of your choice. We also offer area development franchises for those looking to lock down a larger territory and slowly build a series of First Choice Pediatrics locations/territories.
We have the right to establish, maintain, and modify one or more websites that identify the “First Choice Pediatrics” brand, system, and businesses that operate under the Marks. You will have the right to promote your Center using this webpage, and to utilize and modify this webpage, provided that you comply with our Website and Internet policies, and our other Center Rules.
Our current Website is identified as www.fcpediatrics.com.
