Rolling Hills Estates, Calif. (September 3, 2013) – Transworld Business Advisors, a unique business concept that provides services for business brokerage, franchise consultant, and franchise development, announces a new location in Rolling Hills Estates, under the ownership of local residents Ken Watanabe.

Transworld Business Advisors is essentially three complementary businesses rolled into one:  business brokerage, franchise consulting, and franchise development. The brokerage side successfully puts buyers and sellers of businesses together; the franchise consulting side gives entrepreneurs access to more than 200 pre-screened franchises and the franchise development service assists people in growing their businesses through franchising.

“Discovering Transworld Business Advisors came at a perfect time in my life because I was looking for the opportunity to start my own business when my permanent residency was approved,” says Watanabe. “After working globally for many years, I was ready to establish myself in a nice area and begin helping others with their business goals.”

Prior to owning a Transworld Business Advisors agency, Watanabe was the CFO of Consumer Electronics Company in Los Angeles. Before that he was the CFO of Precision Plastic Parts in Malaysia, the director of the Casino Cage in Las Vegas, and the general manager for Resort Hotels in Guam.

Transworld Business Advisors is a joint venture between United Franchise Group, (UFG) an industry leader in the development of successful franchise systems with over 1400 franchisees in 50 countries, and Transworld Business Brokers, one of the nation’s largest business brokerage companies handling business sales and mergers and acquisitions.
