“More Latin-American business is done in South Florida between nationalities where the U.S. is not even a party than anywhere else in the world. They come to S. Florida to make international deals and they come here to do business with America. As a product of that South Florida is red hot with Latin Americans doing international business and seeking U.S. business opportunities,” said Mr. Sloboda.
It’s the fourth year in a row the region has received the Best ranking according to a newsletter from the Beacon Council, Miami-Dade’s private/public economic development council. And next year looks as bright.
It is not hard to understand South Florida’s ranking since it was also ranked first for infrastructure, regional platform for global business, corporate executive safety, corporate executive prestige, green city standards and best in executive salary to cost of living ratio, by American Economia.
Simply put, South Florida is the most comfortable and preferable place for Latin Americans to do business the world over, according to American Economia’s rankings. And with all this opportunity comes the need for many Latin-Americans (and their families) to live permanently in South Florida. Many are choosing the EB-5 visa as the pathway to a green card.
The EB-5 visa is a path to permanent residency for foreign investors – and their families – who want to call the U.S. home. To qualify participants must invest at least $500,000 in a USCIS approved business that creates at least 10 U.S. jobs.
FRFG is contacted every day by Latin Americans interested in EB-5 franchise opportunities through the group, according to Mr. Sloboda. “The area’s established Latin-American culture and business climate combined with the EB-5 success of our restaurant franchise investment opportunities is a very potent and popular combination for wealthy Latin-Americans wishing to relocate to South Florida,” he said.
