Famous for serving very lean, butcher-shop-quality top-round whole muscle roast beef, slow-roasted daily on-site and cut razor thin, Lion’s Choice has earned a loyal customer base across its 15 company-owned and 8 franchised Lion’s Choice restaurants throughout the metro St. Louis area.

Established in 1987 by its founder, Don Kohm, The Printing Source has evolved from a small printing-brokerage business into a full-service print/production business with a commitment to quality and client service that well positions the company to meet the needs of a changing marketplace. The Printing Source has earned a national reputation over the years as a pioneer and leader in the invention and utilization of technology, which has enabled the company to produce the highest quality of printing more efficiently. Purchased in 2014 by St. Louis-based private-equity fund FSM Fund I and re-established as TPS Operations, The Printing Source will continue to operate under its original name and under the leadership of its core management team. In conjunction with this purchase, FSM Fund I also finalized two additional transactions that will be important to the continued growth and success of The Printing Source: the acquisition and integration of BlackThorn Marketing, a local print brokerage company and provider of direct mail and promotional products to its clients, and the creation of a subsidiary to manufacture promotional products called Sports Manufacturing Company.
