The Brand

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 USA.

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 30 years in franchising, Ray provided the leadership under United Franchise Group, which is home to award winning franchises such as Signarama, Fully Promoted (formally EmbroidMe), Experimac, SuperGreen Solutions, VentureX, and Jon Smith Subs. Andy provided the business brokerage industry experience. Their symbiotic relationship helped grow the Transworld franchise into more than 220 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.
