Transworld Business Advisers

Business brokerage franchise reaches 20 territories across the UK

12 June 2017 10:38


Transworld Business Advisors set its sights on expanding to the UK from the US in 2015 and, just 18 months after its launch, is celebrating 20 active territories and 10 franchise partners operating those locations with their teams of business brokers.

Ranked the number one franchise in the business brokerage industry by the prestigious Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 year after year, Transworld Business Advisors is well on its way to becoming the go-to provider for business owners who wish to sell and people who wish to buy a business in the UK. They also offer specialist advice to business owners who are interested in franchising their business. You can now find a Transworld business broker in London, Kent, Berkshire, Surrey, Yorkshire, the Midlands and North East.

Mark Devonshire is one of the latest multi-territory franchise partners to launch. His London City Group of Transworld Business Advisors is based at Old Street but with a reach as far South as Dulwich, North to Finsbury, East to Canary Wharf and West to Fleet Street. “For over 35 years, I gained fabulous experience working with all sorts of talented owners of SMEs in London and, indeed, the global economy. We will use our collective skills to help bring together buyers and sellers of companies in this vibrant and exciting world-class community and local economy. There are tens of thousands of entrepreneurs looking for solutions; some want to sell and others want to buy or expand, some for strategic and some for personal reasons; we are here and available to provide them with a confidential and professional service,” says Mark.

“I’ve run my accountancy firm for 13 years during which time I’ve bought and sold a few businesses and, dare I say it, I enjoyed it more than tax calculations! One thing that struck me about those business sales was the varying quality of support through the process and the shocking difference in fees applied by the business brokers. At Transworld Business Advisors, we don’t charge up-front fees - they’re only charged if a business sale is completed,” adds Andy Myers who owns multiple territories across Kent.

Transworld will be running expert seminars, with business partners from legal and banking services, on how to prepare your business for sale. In the meantime, we have free guides for people who are considering selling their business and for those thinking of buying one. The two free guides have top tips on getting your business ready to sell and the important steps to buying a business which are available by emailing:

About Transworld Business Advisers

Transworld Business Advisors is a global network of business brokers with in-depth local knowledge of every business community we work within. We have three main areas of expertise:
Helping people to buy businesses
Helping people sell their businesses
Helping people expand their business through franchising

At Transworld, we can either represent a business owner who wishes to sell their business or someone who needs support with buying a business. We have the enviable position of being the number one global business brokerage service* but with each of our business brokers having an intimate knowledge of their local business community. That means that we can match buyers and sellers whether they live five miles or 5,000 miles apart.

Transworld was started in 1979 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and became highly successful very quickly. Transworld opened its first office in London before expanding across the UK and Ireland. Today, Transworld can also be found in South Africa, Australia, Canada and India.

Our services are centred around three thriving industries, all involving the development and growth of both existing and new businesses. We’re so confident in the quality of our service that we’re one of the only business brokerage firms to not charge up-front fees.

Each Transworld office you find across the UK is owned by a franchisee.

The UK Franchisor and London Transworld office is Michael Ziff. Michael has significant retail experience and was the CEO of footwear business Stylo from 1990. In 2006 he took that business online, a move that quickly proved successful, generating sales of £18million per annum within 18 months. At its height of trade Stylo had a turnover of over £200million and employed over 5,000 staff. He is also a director Town Centre Securities Plc (TCS). A fully-listed property and car park company in which both my family and I have a substantial interest. TCS has a yearly profit of £7million and net assets of £190million, including the Merrion Centre in Leeds which the company also owns.
