Many restaurant chains have turned to foreign investors and the EB-5 visa program to help expand in South Florida, the Sun Sentinel reports.
Franchisees for VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Twin Peaks and The New Miami Subs Grill have all sought out funds from investors interested in participating in the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’Immigrant Investor Program, more commonly known as EB-5.
EB-5 begins a road to citizenship for foreign investors, who can receive a green card by creating 10 U.S. jobs.
VooDoo BBQ & Grill’s Pembroke Pines location is among the local locations directly benefitting from EB-5 investment.
