Related Investors, LLC, is a certified franchisee of many well-known food service franchises, such as Denny’s and Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen. Related Investors believes that franchising offers a more sound investment model, since franchises tend to succeed at higher rates than standalone businesses.
Being a certified franchisee gives us the ability to quickly produce the business documents needed to submit the initial EB-5 application. Investing in a franchise increases the likelihood of profitability due to the fact that franchises have established brand awareness and a proven track record of profitability.
Franchising also provides investors with a painless way of attracting customers, since most franchises have proven advertising methods that lead to revenue growth. The research needed to prove your business has met EB-5 job creation criteria is also diminished, due to the fact that most franchises have established estimates of how many employees are required for each location.
Finally, franchising offers a simplified EB-5 application process, when compared to other EB-5 investments, since it is easier to convince USCIS officials that your franchise will be profitable, given the fact our franchisors are successful and well known.
