LUCAS – Town Money Saver was recently selected as one of the nation’s best franchises by the publication Franchse Times.

The annual Franchise Times 200+ was published in the October 2019 issue of Franchise Times magazine. The list is an annual ranking of the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States by global systemwide sales, based on the previous year’s performance.

“To be recognized once again as a high-quality option in the world of franchising is as exciting as it is humbling,” said Bill Zirzow, president and CEO of Town Money Saver. “This our seventh honor of 2019 and to be recognized in so many ways means a great deal to us.”

Town Money Saver, a Lucas franchise that focuses on “easy and effective” advertising solutions for hometown businesses, was named a top franchise opportunity of 2019 by Franchise Business Review and ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500––both for the third time in as many years.

This year, Franchise Business Review also recognized Town Money Saver as one of the most innovative franchises, a top low-cost franchise, a top service franchise, and a top franchise for veterans.

According to Franchise Times, a research team uses a combination of each of the prospective companies’ voluntary reports and publicly available data, including the franchises’ most recent franchise disclosure documents and Securities and Exchange Commission filings, to complete the rankings. It is also backed by more than 20 years of research “and is the only objective ranking available.”

Operating in its 27th year, Town Money Saver currently serves more than 150 communities in the Midwest with a monthly circulation of nearly 2.2 million.

“Between our Performance Awarded Franchise Opportunity, which allows prospective franchisees to earn their franchise without fees, 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.”
