Very much so, according to Transworld Business Advisors, which says its franchisees have no shortage of clients.
The company offers a service that helps customers make life-changing transitions and its franchisees are experts in delivering it, maximising the value of their businesses for sale.
In addition, Transworld Business Advisors franchisees support first-time buyers as they make their initial investment, walking them through the process using a business model that’s been fine-tuned over the last 40 years.
As overheads are low, this business has a high profit potential, with franchisees benefiting from multiple income streams.
After meeting with Transworld Business Advisors to discuss your application to become a franchisee, you will be provided with detailed information about revenue, expenditure and profit and loss.
However, as an example, a franchisee who sells a business for £200,000 can earn a sales commission of ten per cent, which equates to £20,000.
After an initial consultation call over the phone, you will be invited to meet the Transworld Business Advisors’ team at the company’s London offices to discuss the opportunity and the possibility of joining the franchise network.
After this meeting, you will be provided with the contact details of all its current franchisees. Henry Ziff, managing director of Transworld Business Advisors, runs his own office, so can provide prospective franchisees with an insight into the day-to-day running of the business.
The final stage of the recruitment process is an executive interview with the Transworld Business Advisors directors. If both parties are in agreement and it’s decided that the partnership is the correct one for the company’s network, Transworld Business Advisors will award the franchise.
