Town Money Saver recently has welcomed three new faces to its team — Ali Newman, Lisa Bartholow, and Terry Ringer.
All three have shown great passion for serving their individual communities and have found successes early in their time with the company.
Newman is operating in Berea, Kentucky. Her and her husband, Greg, have three children, Kruise, Kierce, and Koert.
“My desire to be my own boss and love of socializing has made this the perfect fit,” Newman said of Town Money Saver.
Newman and her husband have been married 15 years.
“He has been a state trooper for the state of Kentucky for 10 years and has served on the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team for six.”
Outside of TMS, Newman and her family enjoy camping, going to different sporting events, and traveling.
She was introduced to Town Money Saver by franchisees Dean and Lisa Bartholow and is a one-year breast cancer survivor.
“My only hope is to inspire others to stay positive and keep fighting,” she said.
Additionally, Newman set a Town Money Saver record for highest grossing magazine in her first issue and was recognized at Town Money Saver’s annual meeting in November.
Lisa Bartholow operates near Newman in Frankfort, Kentucky. She originally gained interest in becoming a franchisee in when her husband, Dean, joined the team, in 2016.
“After being in a support role for a year, I made the decision to leave my 35 year career as a Registered Nurse and take on the challenge of opening my own area in Frankfort, Kentucky,” Lisa Bartholow said.
She was born in Huntington, West Virginia. Her and her husband have five children and two grandsons.
Before TMS, she was a Registered Nurse and received her nursing degree from Marshall University, home of the Thundering Herd. Majority of her nursing career was spent in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
“That will always be where my true nursing heart lies,” she said.
From ziplining and scuba diving to riding her motorcycle across the country with her friends and family, Lisa Bartholow enjoys anything that makes her “heart race.”
She also spends time doing charity work in many different areas though her Sister’s Keeper group.
Ringer is a small-business entrepreneur having owned and operated several boutique businesses in the Vienna, West Virginia, where he operates, and surrounding areas.
“Currently, I operate two East of Chicago Pizza units,” he said. “I decided to pursue a Town Money Saver franchise due to the success of other East of Chicago Pizza Franchisees that advertise in TMS.”
Ringer is a graduate of Bridgeport Senior High School and attended West Virginia University. He resides in Vienna with his wife, Trish.
Within the past few years, TMS revised its branding and began offering its Performance Awarded Franchise Opportunity, which gives prospective franchisees the ability to earn a franchise without fees. Newman, Burdette, and Ringer all took advantage of this program.
“Our Performance Awarded Franchise Opportunity has been a real game-changer for us and is simply unheard of in our industry,” TMS President Bill Zirzow said. “There has absolutely been no better time than now to start franchising with us.”
