Transworld knows what it takes to start a business brokerage firm – we’ve done it many times before. Having been in business since 1979, we’ve simplified the process, ensuring that our franchisees spend time and money only on the things that matter most. Because we’re backed by United Franchise Group, our franchisees enjoy resources and expertise that many entrepreneurs are forced to do without. Here, get a sneak peek at some of the key steps in the process of starting a business brokerage firm with Transworld.

1. COMPLETE THE REQUEST INFORMATION FORM

Take a moment to fill out this simple form to get in touch with a member of our franchise development team. They will help answer some initial questions, learn more about your interest in Transworld, and put you in touch with the right people to move forward. 

2. MEET WITH A LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE

Your Regional Vice President is the person you’ll be working with throughout the process of opening your Transworld franchise. They’ll be interested in getting to know you and your interest in our brand. In this stage, they’ll also share some basic information about what to expect when starting a business brokerage firm.

3. COMPLETE YOUR PERSONAL PROFILE

We’re interested in learning about you, your business background, questions and concerns, financial capabilities, and so forth. You’ll complete a brief personal profile so we can assess your readiness to invest in a Transworld franchise. Around this time, you’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about us.

4. RECEIVE THE FRANCHISE DISCLOSURE DOCUMENT (FDD)

We’ll provide you with a copy of our FDD so you can get the details on starting a business brokerage firm with Transworld. Here, you’ll be able to review all the fine print: estimated costs, fees, training, and support resources, and much more. Review it carefully – signing your franchise agreement indicates you’ve read and agree to the FDD. 

5. MEET THE EXECUTIVE TEAM

If it seems like we’d be a good fit, you’ll be able to meet our executive team to ask any final questions before becoming a franchisee. They’ll also be interested in meeting you so they can see for themselves that you’re a well-qualified candidate. This face-to-face is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the people who lead our brand.

6. BECOME A FRANCHISE OWNER

Once you’ve signed your franchise agreement, congratulations are in order; you’re now a Transworld franchisee! We can finally get started on opening your new business.

7. ATTEND TRAINING SCHOOL

Collaborate, learn, and grow with fellow franchisees and team members during your two-week initial training. Here, we’ll show you the ins and outs of how to run your new business using our time-tested systems.
