“I felt like I really made a difference.”

In 1992, my wife and I started the Grafton Saver, a direct mail publica advertisers, which we thought would serve as a part-time business to help with our expenses. Little did we know that after only three months, the results would exceed anything that we had ever seen. It was then that we decided to make it a full-time operation.

Fast-forward to today — with over 40 franchisees in three states, reaching nearly 2.3 million homes each month — the mission hasn’t changed: to provide affordable, effective advertising to local businesses that offers the best possible return on investment.

While the mission hasn’t changed, those local businesses that believed in me changed my life forever. I was given the opportunity to own my own business with unlimited income potential, operating on my own schedule, while helping grow the same businesses that helped me.  

I often recall my experience with Dr. Churchill, a Grafton, Ohio dentist whose ad enabled him to expand his practice to full time. I felt like I really made a difference — something we still try to do an a daily basis.

When given a gift, I feel compelled to share it. That’s why I am thrilled to offer other outside sales professionals the same opportunity I was given — complete with a proven, turnkey system that allows you to build equity in your own franchise.

Read on to discover how Town Money Saver can make a difference to you.

"We are all in it together! That mentality is probably what I like most about being a part of Town Money Saver. The corporate office staff is very supportive and always looking for ways to improve the product and production of the product, which of course makes my job better all the time. At TMS I can be an individual but also have the security of knowing that I can turn to anyone, be it another franchisee, my area developer or the corporate staff when I need help or advice. TMS brings huge opportunity for building new relationships with clients both on a business and a personal level." Deanna Houtz
"The best benefit I get from being a part of TMS is my quality of life! I love having the freedom of time that TMS brings me. Once print is over and done, I have free time to spend with my wife and kids, and it lets me be actively involved with all of their activities." Drew Poling
