About Boardwalk Fresh Burgers & Fries 

Boardwalk Fresh Burgers & Fries was founded by two brothers Dav and Fran DiFerdiando who came up with the ingenious idea to bring the famous Boardwalk Fries from Ocean City, Maryland. Their first store open in a mall in Maryland in 1981 and by 1987 they had several franchises across the United States.

BoardwalkIcon4After numerous suggestions and requests by customers to have burgers to go with their boardwalk fries, in 2008 their company began franchising “Boardwalk Fresh Burgers & Fries” with a menu that includes burgers, hot dogs, chicken, salads and shakes.

E2 Investment

There are two important considerations for determining whether or not franchise is good option for you as an E2 investor. First, does the franchise allow absentee ownership and second, will the franchise create enough jobs to qualify with US Immigration.

The answer to these questions is “yes.”

In order to have successful Boardwalk Fresh Burgers &Fries, location properly selected and managed staff is a must. Thus, it will be necessary to hire more than two full-time employees in order to meet the requirements for your E2 visa. Be sure to consider this aspect in your overall franchise plan.
