Transworld Business Advisors' Top Franchise Opportunity

Franchise development and business brokerage brand Transworld Business Advisors has just been named to the "Franchise 500" from Entrepreneur Magazine and also to the publication's "Fastest-Growing Franchise" and "Top 100 Franchises Under $100,000" lists. On the Franchise 500, the business brokerage brand came in at 257 for its stellar performance in areas such as brand power, stability, financial strength and unit growth, and it came in at 33 on the "Top 100" list and 64 on the "Fastest-Growing" rankings. For all three lists, this brand was the top franchise opportunity in its industry.

The most weighed factors by Entrepreneur for the Franchise 500 list include financial stability and strength, brand power, support, growth and size, costs and fees. Each franchise business brand evaluated for list inclusion receives a cumulative score that is based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 brands with the highest total scores make up the list by score ranking order.

Part of the United Franchise Group umbrella of franchise business brands and companies, Transworld Business Advisors helps entrepreneurs and business professionals navigate the process of selling and buying businesses by providing franchise development, business brokerage and consulting services.

Brand President Bill Luce said the rankings are an outstanding achievement and a reflection of the franchise's entire network. According to Luce, Transworld's business model has held strong for over 40 years, and the recognition by Entrepreneur is a demonstration of the brand's success.

For more than four decades, Transworld has been providing clients across several industries with business services covering everything from brokerage to mergers and acquisitions, and this established brand still has franchise opportunities available. The total initial investment for one of this brand's opportunities ranges from $62,000 to $79,000, which includes a $49,500 franchise fee.
