February 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // WEST PALM BEACH, Florida - Coming off of a great 2016, Transworld Business Advisors is looking to build on that momentum in the coming year of 2017. They are off to a great start having recently signed Master Licenses for South Africa and India and brought 57 new domestic franchisees aboard in 2016.

With 145 franchised offices worldwide, Transworld offers the professional services that successfully bring buyers and sellers together. From business brokerage to mergers and acquisitions, Transworld Business Advisors are the business sale specialists.
Transworld is looking to increase their growth in 2017 by adding 80 more U.S. units and five more global Master Licenses. Some of the countries targeted for that growth are France, China, Singapore and Mexico.
Bill Luce, president of Transworld, which operates under the United Franchise Group umbrella, said much of Europe, Asia and South America are still open for expansion and demand is high as businesses continue global growth.
According to Franchising.com, having a blueprint for international growth has been increasing in popularity for U.S.-based franchisors, 80 percent of the world's population lives in areas that are considered emerging markets. The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that over 75 percent of the expected growth in the world's trade over the next two decades will come from developing countries, particularly big emerging markets, which account for over half the world's population, but only 25 percent of its gross domestic product.
In addition, the report said that finding well-qualified master franchisees outside the U.S. can pave the way for growth of a franchise because the qualified master franchisee can be the key to identifying and recruiting talented franchisees that fit the system and successfully execute the franchise concept.
Domestic growth will be focused throughout the United States and Luce said that growth will be aided by the addition of more training and support personnel to Transworld's already robust initial training, ongoing education and comprehensive mentoring programs. In addition, Luce said Transworld will be introducing a Franchise Resale Program. This program will assist franchise companies in the sale of their existing franchise locations.
