I had played in the League for 14 years before I became a League Operator. I saw this as a great business to get into for planning our retirement and to help put two daughters through college. I have always wanted to be my own boss. Becoming an APA Franchisee has made my dream come true. We are able to learn from others through the Conventions and interaction with other League Operators - their support has been a great assistance. The opportunity to belong to an organization that has the fairest pool system has been great.
