About the Company

For over thirty-five years, Transworld has specialized in the sale of businesses and commercial real estate.

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 is a global network of brokers offering a turnkey solution for those that want to build a solid business and future for themselves while maintaining a balanced quality of life.

With our comprehensive training programs, full marketing support, and local field support, you won’t have to start from scratch. Our trained experts and mentors will help you every step of the way.

Broker Biography

Hank Alston (704) 797-1595


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.

Services Provided

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

We assist our sellers in obtaining the highest and best possible price for your business while taking the least amount of time from you and your company. We know that your time is more valuable when invested in continuing to run your company. In order to achieve the best price, your company must continue to grow. After all, that will be what a buyer who wants to purchase it will be looking for. Our philosophy has created a multiple step"how to" strategy that culminates with the sale of your company. This proven method has been used to sell thousands of businesses.

Buying a business is one of the biggest life decisions you will ever have to make. It can be a long and laborious process, or it can be a relatively simple transaction if you do your research, get the right advice and cover all the basics. All buyers should meet their Transworld representative in person, however, if that is not possible due to distance, continuous communication by phone or email can be effective. We begin searching for the right business by gathering detailed information about you to establish your financial capabilities, your skills and experiences, and your personal life goals. This information helps us gain your commitment to the process and determine the best types of business to pursue. Once this is completed, we will start your search using Transworld’s considerable market basket of resources.

Our franchise consultants will provide you with guidance, information, and support as you seek to obtain your franchise goals. Due to our experience and expertise, we have developed relationships with some of the leading franchise companies in North America. It is our desire to help you find the franchise that matches your skills, passions, interests, experience, and investment needs. Our free service will help you determine if franchising is for you! If you are looking for greater security from downsizing, more control of your life, and the dream of independence, Transworld can help you get there! We will find you a franchise that is within your budget and teach you to analyze and to evaluate the pros and cons of the opportunity to safely ensure the company is the right fit for you!

The Transworld Franchise Development Program includes prepared franchise documents, Uniform Franchise Disclosure Document (UFDD), Franchise Agreement and all exhibits, a complete set of operations manuals, franchise website designed exclusively for your business, marketing & advertising materials, Franchise Sales Brochure and a personal franchise consultant to coordinate the preparation of your Franchise Program to the standards of Franchising Professionals.
