A short route to business success
The turnkey business includes an initial supply of marketing materials, access to proprietary software and brokerage support, as well as ongoing marketing and assistance in all areas of the enterprise. The business can be operated from a virtual or executive office suite, and with no required inventory and low monthly overheads, there is even the possibility of franchisees breaking even and building a sustainable venture in less than six months. “It could even be recovered with one deal,” says master license franchisee for southern Africa Jacques Stoltz. Stoltz recently opened his own Transworld Business Advisors office in the Vaal Triangle, and with the franchise rights to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Botswana, he is looking to recruit additional franchise owners into the Transworld network at the rate of two per year. The second South African office opened in Alberton on 1 March 2018. This office will concentrate on business and franchise sales in the Gauteng East area.
