->> I am interested in finding out if any of you have a TSS franchise or any experiences with TSS. I'm looking into TSS to see if it makes any sense for my business. Thanks in advance.

->> I looked at their stuff years ago- when it costs what seemed like 20,000 to get in- and digtial cameras cost a fortune back then-

I didn't have that kind of bread- I liked what they had, but it is still about being able to sell and book leagues....I haven't checked them out in awhile-

if you are weak in marketing it might be a good fit for you-
but nothing you couldn't do on your own with some help

do you have any expeiance selling online?
with say printroom or such?

not sure what TSS offers these days.....or how much it costs....

need to more about your background, experience and and what you are after- what are your goals?

->> Phil, the one in my area is losing market share. Like any franchise, depends an the franchisee. Turn around is slow, at least 3-4 weeks.

->> I've been working with my buddy and his wife who own a TSS franchise for 3 years now. We shot 20K kids last year and will do about 30K this year. TSS has a great product selection and is now staring to go digital. Like Sam said, success is relative to the franchisee. You'll get what you put into it. If you treat your leagues right they'll keep you forever.
