LUCAS, Ohio – Town Money Saver (TMS) started 2020 with a bang after being named a top franchise opportunity by Franchise Business Review.

The 15th annual ranking of the top 200 award-winning franchise opportunities was released Jan. 2. The full list is available at

“We couldn’t be more excited to be recognized again by Franchise Business Review,” said Bill Zirzow, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TMS. “Our goal is always to serve franchisees at an exceptional level so that they can pay it forward to their customers.”

This is the company’s fourth consecutive year earning the honor. Franchise Business Review also named TMS one of its top low-cost franchises of 2019.

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.

Town Money Saver was among over 307 franchise brands, representing more than 27,500 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. 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.

“There are thousands of successful franchise companies operating in North America, but many of those companies do not offer a solid investment opportunity for the actual franchise owners,” says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “As an independent research firm, we rate the franchise companies in the marketplace today and identify those that have the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees in order to help entrepreneurs choose which franchise to invest in. The companies on this year’s list are the top-performing brands in the areas critical to their franchisees’ success.”

TMS focuses on “easy and effective” advertising solutions for hometown businesses. Operating in its 28th year, TMS currently serves more than 150 communities in the Midwest with a monthly circulation of nearly 2.2 million.
