No franchise is going to require $20 million in assets, that's just silly. For someone with that kind of money, there are much more interesting investments than franchise. Krispy Creme requires $1 million in liquid assets and a net worth of $2 million.

Invest it in random stocks


Somehow create a plant that makes car parts....for old cars. Such as discontinued parts that everyone needs to keep OBD1 cars and older running in pristine condition.

And if it's extremely popular, buy out Toyota and then stop making vehicles cause their cars fucking suck these days.

bet it on the banker.


buy as much investment as you allowed to on a yearly basis, for example: RRSP, TSFA, etc... set ur self up for the future. and let your money make MOOORE money for you but before that, build a solid foundation for yourself first. Hell you have a million dollars, I'm pretty sure you can come up with a million ways to get something started with that.
