505, RE: I need Help Setting up Investors & Returns

I would keep it simple so as not to run afoul of any securities laws. Offer them a promisory note secrued by the business itself. Put in specific payment terms,maturity, interest rate (in accordance with state regulations) and default remedies (what can they get if you fail)

This gives them something a little more "solid" then trying to deal with selling shares and securities.

Hope this was helpful and best of luck with your venture
