United Franchise Group (UFG) announced that one of its premier brands, Transworld Business Advisors, the world’s leading business franchise brokerage and development company, has expanded into Greenville, S.C. with the addition of “JT” Jim Tatem, president of UFG and the franchisee of the growing location. Recognized as an astute advisor and mentor for entrepreneurs, Tatem has helped mold and shape the hopes and dreams of nearly 3,000 franchise owners over his more than 30 years in the industry.
“I have been associated with the Signarama franchise and United Franchise Group for more than 30 years, and the Signarama Greenville franchise is very well-established here,” he said. “Looking at other UFG brands, Transworld is the challenge that excited me the most as it combines all the elements that I’ve been successful at over the last three decades; helping people get into business, helping them grow their business, and helping them build strong sales and support teams.”
The Greenville East Transworld franchise, located in the heart of the Greenville East marketing area and is easily accessible from I-85 and I-385, includes an outstanding mix of retail, industrial, and professional businesses. “Greenville is a booming city,” said Tatem.
Tatem’s goals for 2019 include adding a team of agents to focus on the brand’s numerous listings and assist in current business sales transactions. “We’re setting goals and lead measures for each agent to drive their success,” said the industry veteran. “Our process will include increasing our listing offerings, seller and buyer appointments, showings, offers, and closing deals for our clients. Greenville is a great market and we intend to take full advantage of it.” Also, the office has aligned with long established commercial real estate broker, Langston Black for real estate being offered with business sales.
Transworld Greenville East has already sold its first business, earned a small business association referral commission, and referred a franchise.
In his role at Transworld Greenville East, Tatem will be heavily involved in the Greenville business community, coaching and mentoring business owners and their sales teams, as well as analyzing additional business investments.
“Transworld is a unique, dynamic, and rewarding opportunity for any entrepreneur who has dreams of franchising,” he said.
Transworld Greenville East represents acquisition-minded individuals. The most common businesses served are in the retail, industrial, franchises, corporate, restaurants, and café sectors. “With the experience, mentoring, and consulting skills of “JT”, the brand will certainly grow its presence in the area and region,” said Bill Luce, President of Transworld Business Advisors. “We are certainly excited about the future and look forward to serving entrepreneurs that want to make a difference.”
“JT” Jim Tatem is a proven difference maker and the perfect person to lead Transworld into a new era of service in South Carolina.
