Transworld Business Advisors is marking its 40th anniversary with another huge milestone – welcoming its 200th franchisee, making it the largest franchise broker system in the world. As the world's leading Business Brokerage and Franchise Development Company, Transworld spans over more than 235 territories throughout 16 countries.

Domestically, it's largest market shares are in the cities of Houston, Denver, and Dallas, as well as the state of Florida. Internationally, United Kingdom master partner Michael Ziff covers a mass majority of that country.

"This is a wonderful achievement and a reflection of our due diligence in recruiting great agents and employees," said Andy Cagnetta, Chief Executive Officer of Transworld. "We have fine-tuned our proprietary methods for recruiting, but just telling our story and showing potential associates the success of our worldwide franchisees is often enough to convince them to join the Transworld family."

When Cagnetta purchased the company in the mid-90s, there was a staff of seven, 35 businesses for sale, one computer, and one fax machine.

"Our business model of matching buyers and sellers has not wavered over four decades, and that is the key," added Bill Luce, President of Transworld. "We find the most qualified professionals to join our franchise system. It's all about getting to the right sellers and buyers and giving them the proper information to make informed decisions."

Having the largest system in the world, and being a top online advertiser, is a Transworld advantage that goes a long way toward finding "good deals for good people," and that includes making sure that resources are coupled with knowledge to oversee the transactions between parties. In business brokering, it's about creating and communicating the value of a business to the best buyers; franchise consulting helps a buyer locate a franchise system that best matches his or her skills, business goals, and lifestyle; while franchise development targets methods on how to grow a business through franchising.

Transworld offers excellent training on all those levels to its franchisees. The company has also been ranked at the top of the brokerage industry list on Entrepreneur Franchise's 500 listing, noting its strengths in franchise consulting, development, and business brokerage services.
