in 1979,

Transworld Business Advisors was originally founded in South Florida by Don (a 30-year IBM executive) and his wife Bonnie Parrish. Andy Cagnetta, CEO & owner of Transworld Florida, originally came to Transworld as a buyer looking to fulfill his entrepreneurial dreams. From his first meeting, he knew Transworld was special and different. After a few years of working for Don, Andy bought Transworld and quickly grew it to the largest business brokerage in Florida. 

Although the company was thriving, Andy 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 more than 30 years of franchise expertise, Ray leads the United Franchise Group, home to award-winning franchises Signarama, Transworld Business Advisors, Fully Promoted, Experimac, SuperGreen Solutions, VentureX, The Great Greek, Jon Smith Subs, and Network Lead Exchange. 

With Ray’s franchise success and Andy’s business brokerage industry experience, their symbiotic relationship helped grow Transworld into what it is today – The World’s Leading Business Brokerage Franchise – with more than 235 territories in 16 countries worldwide.
