ANN ARBOR – Advertising franchise system Town Money Saver (TMS) has not one but two reasons to celebrate.

The Ohio-headquartered franchise has been recognized as a top low-cost franchise for the third consecutive year by Franchise Business Review (FBR). Additionally, TMS franchisee Eze Akabogu also was recognized by FBR as a 2019 Franchise Rock Star. Akobogu is featured on the cover of the publication.

Man on front of magazine“What an honor it is to not only be recognized again as a top low-cost franchise but also to have one our franchisees honored because of his exceptional attitude and work ethic,” said Bill Zirzow, president and CEO of Town Money Saver. “Eze has been with us for several years and has consistently been a source of inspiration for all of us.”

Akabogu operates franchises in Michigan, specifically in Ann Arbor, Saline, Ypsilanti, Belleville, Canton, Livonia, Novi, Northville, and Plymouth.

“First and foremost, I love what I do,” Akobogu said in the publication. “Waking up in the morning is a joy in anticipation to go to work. I truly enjoy serving my clients’ needs unconditionally.

“I also strongly believe in the Town Money Saver system and products. I like to approach things with prospects by being a consultant –– not a salesman –– and that makes a big difference.”

In the article, Akabogu said he chose Town Money saver because he wanted a company that was a great fit with his personality.

“One that would make it possible to spend time with family and still run a successful business. I wanted to do something that allows me to be the author of my destiny.”

FBR said this year it surveyed over 15,000 franchisees from 153 of today’s “leading franchise brands” to determine the best low-cost franchises, based 100 percent on franchisee satisfaction.

Each survey participant was asked 33 benchmark questions about their franchisor that focused on areas such as leadership, training, and core values as well as 16 more personal questions concerning their business lifestyle and overall enjoyment of running their franchise.

Only 100 brands made FBR’s top-rated list.

FBR is the only independent market research firm that specializes in benchmarking franchisee satisfaction. FBR publishes free and unbiased franchisee satisfaction research reports throughout the year on their website.
