Our database is filled with franchise systems that have proved to be successful. There is a franchise for every budget, some starting at as little as $30,000. The opportunities are endless. You can even search for the right match for you.
Purchasing a franchise is a big-ticket item. But even if you aren’t able to pay for the franchise in cash, several financial assistance programs (including both traditional and non-traditional options) are available to those who qualify. Programs include grants, loans, financial aid, and even retirement rollovers — which offer a tax-free option on the purchase of your business. For a complete listing of lenders and programs, please contact us today.
E2 Treaty Investor Visa
The most common investor visa is the E-2 Treaty Visa. If you’re from a country that has a trade treaty with the US, you qualify for this visa. As long as you legally own 50% of the new business being established, are involved in the intraday workings and development, and contribute a substantial monetary investment–this visa may be a great fit for your business and immigration plan.
L1 – Visa Investors
If you work for an internationally-based company, and have the opportunity to immigrate as an “Intracompany Transferee” to or a new location in the US, the L-1 Visa is a wonderful option. One requirement of the L-1 Visa is that you must have worked for this company for a minimum of 1 year in the past 3 years, and the foreign business must have a related business in the US. In addition to these requirements, you must also possess specialized knowledge, or an advanced job title, such as executive or manager. While this visa is evaluated on a yearly basis, your employer has the opportunity to sponsor you in a more permanent green card immigration process.
EB 5 Visa Investors
If you have the financial capability to contribute a very serious and large investment to a commercial business in the US, the EB-5 Visa may be your best option. This visa gives you the ability to apply for a green card under the presumption that you will immigrate to the US to create or preserve 10 permanent full-time jobs for US workers. This visa comes with the highest levels of monetary commitment, as you must have the ability to not only fund your business and ten employees, but also prove that your business is viable with a thorough business plan. Costs often range between $1,000,000 and $500,000 (depending on where you wish to move).
Buy An Existing Business
Buying an existing business can be the quickest option to be in business and a good solution for a foreign investor. However, contrary to a franchise where you are helped all the steps of the way, once you have purchased your business, you will be on your own. We will help you through the process of due diligence, keep in mind that this process is much less standardized than in the case of a franchise, so it is going to be on a one to one case to determine all the steps.

Our experience with dear Al and his staff was wonderful. We were directed to a business with our profile and availability, Al’s team gave us all the support we needed to evaluate the best option for us and provided us with a lot of information to make our decision. From the mapping of our profile, the franchise options within the mapping carried out, the negotiation support with the franchisor until the closing of the business, Al’s team handled it all. And everything occurred in an effective and gratifying way without any doubts along the way. Al’s team is very professional and prepared!

“In 2014 I was looking for a new business. I am from Brazil and was looking to move to the U.S., so after a long search I found Al Lesko. Al understood our needs and provided accurate information for us to evaluate. We also had the pleasure of meeting and working with Alycin Taft, who works with Al. They were bothvery good to work with, provided quick answers and all the information we required to make such an important decision! After we decided to buy our franchise, they continued to help us a LOT with different issues like immigration service demands. I am pretty sure we would not be here without such great help. If you are looking to change your professional life – no matter which business – I guarantee Al and his team will find the right fit for you.”
