About Transworld Business Advisors


In today’s economy, there are more people looking to buy and sell businesses than ever before. When a company owner needs to sell their business, they can’t just stick a for sale sign in the window. They need the assistance of a business broker to locate and vet potential buyers. On the other side, buyers rely on the broker to help facilitate the process of evaluating potential businesses and franchises for sale. A Transworld Business Advisor is the solution for both scenarios.

Transworld Business Advisors focus on three core concepts: business brokerage, franchise consulting and franchise development.

The History Of Transworld Business Advisors

Established in 1979, Transworld Business Advisors was originally founded in South Florida by Don (a 30 year IBM executive) and his wife Bonnie Parrish. It quickly grew to the largest business brokerage in the U.S.

Although the company was thriving, CEO Andrew Cagnetta envisioned even more growth. It wasn’t long before United Franchise Group CEO Ray Titus and Cagnetta teamed up to form a partnership and offer Transworld Business Advisors as a franchise.

With over 25 years in franchising, Ray provided the leadership under United Franchise Group, which is home to award winning franchises such as Signarama, EmbroidMe, Plan Ahead Events, and Izon Global Media. Andy provided the business brokerage industry experience. Their symbiotic relationship helped grow the Transworld franchise into more than 100 franchisees around the world.

Transworld Business Advisors is headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida. Our state of the art training facility has helped thousands of entrepreneurs achieve their dream of business ownership.
