How do investments in franchises usually work for places like: Dunkin Donuts, Panera, McDonalds or a Gas Station such as: Exxon or BP Gas?

    Each franchisor has their own terms and conditions. Also, the franchisee must demonstrate the creation of 10 new jobs and the investment of capital required by EB-5 regulations.

    The investment can either be in an EB-5 regional center project or in a direct project. The investment may be in one location or several locations all starting at the same time.

    You would still have to incorporate an entity and you would also have to enter into franchise agreements and supply a copy of the franchise agreement. All the other regular documents would apply such as proof of funds, business plan, etc.

    Simply put, the franchisee must be able to demonstrate that the requisite number of jobs will be created.

    Most entities that own and/or operate franchises may have certain requirements for investment. For example, some may require the investor already be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Others may not have such requirements. Retaining an experienced EB-5 attorney, like those at our law firm, can help you develop an approvable strategy for your U.S. Immigration goals.
