LUCAS, Ohio – For the third straight year, Town Money Saver (TMS) is being named a top franchise opportunity by Franchise Business Review.

The 14th annual ranking of the top 200 award-winning franchise opportunities was released Jan. 8. The full list is available at franchisebusinessreview.com.

“To be totally honest, we’re kind of speechless,” said Bill Zirzow, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Town Money Saver. “To know that our franchisees are consistently happy with Town Money Saver and the opportunity we have provided them is incredible, and we hope to use this as continued motivation to pay it forward.”

TMS is a franchise that focuses on “easy and effective” advertising solutions for hometown businesses. Operating in its 27th year, TMS currently serves more than 150 communities in the Midwest with a monthly circulation of nearly 2.2 million.
Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings and awards for franchise companies based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance.

“There are thousands of different franchise opportunities available to prospective business owners today, with more popping up every day. It’s a great time to ‘be your own boss’ but it’s also important to do your homework to find the right fit,” says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Our independent research of franchisee satisfaction helps entrepreneurs discover the top franchise opportunities in every industry category – including fitness, travel, food, services, and retail. This year’s Franchisee Satisfaction Award winners truly are the best-of-the-best.”

This year, FBR surveyed over 30,000 franchisees from 310 of today’s leading franchise brands to determine the best franchises of 2019.

TMS franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

“To keep all these areas in our focus and improve them year to year while keeping our franchisees’ happiness a top priority is something we’re very proud of,” Zirzow said. “And we certainly don’t plan to change that focus any time in the near future.”

In fact, TMS offers a Performance Awarded Franchise Opportunity, a system that gives prospective franchisees the ability to earn their franchise without fees.

“Between our Performance Awarded Franchise Opportunity and the national shop local trend, our franchisees are finding early success helping the many local businesses that are in need of easy and affordable advertising solutions. It’s a win-win.”
