Salvatore F. Cannizzaro

FOUNDER & CEO

Sal is a lifelong entrepreneur in a diverse array of industries. At the early age of 24, Sal founded Innovative Folding Carton Company and proceeded to build the company into the one of the most prestigious printing business in the northeast. After 14 successful years, Sal sold the company to a venture capital firm and set his sights on real estate. In 1998 Sal founded SFC Enterprises, a property development and commercial real estate company. As the founder and CEO, Sal has made timely investments in properties in both New York and New Jersey. More recently, Sal has focused on the building and the development of medical facilities, and, in 2012, he ventured into the field of healthcare management opening the first Immediate Care Medical Walk-In center. He now manages four urgent care centers across New Jersey and has several new centers in development. Sal Cannizzaro’s philosophy as a builder and real estate developer is simple and straightforward – to partner with communities, business professionals and individuals to develop, build and bring to market properties that will endure for generations to come. This philosophy has lead SFC Enterprises to build a diverse portfolio of properties, from residential to commercial, and most recently specializing in medical facilities. As a diversified company, SFC believes that opportunity presents itself in many forms, especially in the ever-changing real estate market. From large commercial projects, to mixed-use projects and state-of-the-art medical facilities, we have the experience and resources necessary to successfully bring a project to market. “SFC approaches every project looking to balance the needs and desires of the local community and the environment with those of our affiliates, employees and the customers we serve.”

In recent years, SFC has built four Immediate Care Medical Walk-In facilities in New Jersey including Hazlet, Toms River, East Windsor and Red Bank. Immediate Care is an urgent care medical facility that provides convenient, quality medical services to patients with non-life threatening illnesses and injuries. Sal’s healthcare management company, Immediate Care Walk-In Management LLC, now manages these facilities. The company has several additional facilities scheduled for completion within the next year, including locations in Lacey, Brick, Edison and Marlboro. The centers are designed to accommodate a fast-paced practice and include multiple exam rooms, x-ray and laboratory services as well as administrative offices at each location. SFC is currently in the construction phase of the Marlboro Medical Arts Building, a medical office complex which recently broke ground in August. The project includes two, class-A professional office buildings totaling 36,000 square feet and is scheduled for completion in summer 2017. Immediate Care and CentraState Healthcare System will serve as anchor tenants for the complex. The project brings together Sal’s expertise in real estate and healthcare management and marks a new phase in his versatile career.
