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. Their symbiotic relationship helped grow the Transworld franchise into more than 250 franchisees around the world.
