E2 Visa Opportunities

When selecting an E2 Visa Business opportunity it is important to ensure that the business you purchase will satisfy each of the E2 Visa requirements. To that effect, both the viability of the business and the ability of the business to continue to employ at least 2 American Workers is of highest importance.

The benefits of the Cinnabon Franchise is that has been extremely successful in the United States, and its visited by many customers on a daily basis. Considering the Cinnabon model, each Cinnabon location must function through the employment of several employees. During the busiest of times, there can be at least 3 to 4 employees working the line. With this is in mind, it is safe to say that the American worker employment requirement would easily be satisfied through the purchase of a Cinnabon franchise.

TrayInvestment Requirements 

Starting a Cinnabon franchise will require a total investment of $181,050 or upwards, depending on the size of the franchise and its location.

Net Worth Requirements 

Like any business, it is extremely important that the franchise be run successfully, as the failure of your business could reflect negatively on the Cinnabon franchise. Thus, Cinnabon requires that you maintain a net worth of $400,000. Keep in mind that your net worth is basically the value of your assets minus the amount of your debts. Thus, while this may seem like a steep requirement, it can be satisfied by many of our clients.

Liquidity Requirements 

In addition to having a net worth requirement, Cinnabon require their businesses to have a certain amount of funds liquid at all times. This means that they require you to have a certain amount of cash that you will have left on hand, that is essentially available to the business should it ever be required.

Cinnabon has a relatively low cash liquidity requirements of $120,000.

photoTraining Requirements 

Cinnabon offers a “Manager-in-training” program that lasts 12 to 16 days. This consists of both classroom and in-bakery training at Cinnabon’s WOW University. In addition to the initial training, Cinnabon offers continuing corporate and on-site Bakery franchise training, and will prove access to in-depth online tools and development support.

Cinnabon is especially committed to the success of their franchise locations as they continuously schedule regular from a franchise business consultant and the Cinnabon training department. Thus, you can be rest assured that you will be highly trained to handle your franchise business and lead it towards success.


In addition to the extensive training program, Cinnabon is committed to offering “Grand Opening Support,” as the franchise business consultant and a member of the training department will conduct the opening of the bakery along with the franchisee owners. Meaning that you can be rest assured that the opening of your franchise location will go off without a hitch.


Franchise Fee/Royalty

Most if not all, franchises requires their franchisee to pay a “franchise fee” and/or royalties to the corporate office. These include commissions from gross sales and an advertising fee.

Since Cinnabon offers two types of franchises; one for their “Express location” and another for their “Full Bakery locations” their fees differ for each type.

For the “express location,” the initial franchise fee is $7,500. There are no advertising fees, but there is a royalty ranging from $15.00 to $20.00 per case of freezer to oven rolls that are purchase from Cinnabon’s designated supplier.

For the “full bakery location,” an initial franchise fee of $30,000  is required. For this location both an advertising and royalty fee is allocated amounting to 1.5-3% and 6% of net sales respectively. Thus, a total of 9% of your net sales (highest rate) will be due back to the corporate offices of Cinnabon.
