Transworld Business Advisors franchise owner Jeffrey Hoag has opened offices in six southwest Michigan counties, and is seeking entrepreneurs who want to buy or sell a local business.

Transworld Business Advisors is a global leader in the marketing and sales of businesses, mergers and acquisitions, and franchises. Hoag currently is hiring brokers to staff the six locations covering Berrien, Cass, Van Buren, Allegan, Ottawa, and Muskegon counties, along the Lake Michigan shoreline.

“I see this work as a tremendous chance to help sellers and buyers achieve their dreams while maintaining important resources within our communities,” says Hoag. “This is a great place to put down roots and contribute to the local business community in a meaningful way, and I’m excited to lead the team that will bring the vast resources and expertise of Transworld Business Advisors to the communities I know and love.”

Transworld Business Advisors offers comprehensive brokerage services through membership in United Franchise Group (UFG), a family of affiliated brands and consultants. It is managed within Starpoint Brands, a specialty division of UFG comprised of brands in the retail, food and beverage, and professional services sectors.

The connections give it access to a worldwide network of advisors with more than four decades of experience in the franchising industry. Franchisees own and operate locations in the territories they are granted by the brand.

“We’re proud to welcome Jeff into the Transworld family, which will benefit tremendously from his local knowledge and relationships,” says Andy Cagnetta, CEO of Transworld Business Advisors. “The southwest Michigan area offers significant opportunities for people who want to join the small-business revolution and get maximum value for their companies, and we’re happy we can help them succeed.”

Hoag is a native of West Michigan and has continued living and working in the area since graduating from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture.

Before joining Transworld Business Advisors as a franchisee, he worked for a large architecture and engineering firm where he led the K-12 practice group for five years.
