LUCAS, OHIO – Town Money Saver has been identified by independent franchisee satisfaction research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of only 80 franchises to qualify for its 2018 Top Low-Cost Franchises list. Brands on the list had to have high franchisee satisfaction and an investment of under $100,000 at the time their franchisees participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey.

Franchise Business Review provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.

Thousands of franchisees representing nearly 150 low-cost brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between November 2016 and May 2018.

Town Money Saver’s 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.

“Many people never consider buying a franchise because they think they can’t afford it. But what they don’t know is that there are a number of very solid business opportunities out there that can provide the satisfaction and perks of business ownership but don’t require a huge financial investment, says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. The low-cost franchises that made this year’s list are excellent options for those who are looking to make the leap to business ownership.”

“Right now is the best time to become a Town Money Saver franchisee,” Town Money Saver Founder and CEO Bill Zirzow said. “Between our Performance Awarded Franchise Opportunity and the national shop local trend, our franchisees, veteran and rookie, are finding local businesses are in need for easy and affordable advertising solutions so they can compete with bigger brands, and that’s precisely what we offer.”
