Two CPA Offices Expand Payroll in Developing Markets


Greenwood Village, COLORADO, January 09, 2019 – The Colorado founded franchise concept, Payroll Vault, is ringing in the new year with newly awarded offices in Arizona and Florida.  Payroll Vault’s dramatic success is attributed to its appeal as a local boutique-style payroll services company that designs payroll for small businesses. The franchise system maintains its local feel on a national measure through personalized and consultative client services.

A territory in Scottsdale, Arizona, a developing market, is awarded to Dave Hopkins, Joe Tameron and Lucia Del Vecchio.

Joe Tameron and Dave Hopkins, having owned and operated their CPA firm for several years, became aware of Payroll Vault as the brand began to develop and become socialized in the Phoenix/Scottsdale market. Joe and Dave saw the opportunity to offer their clients a full array of services. As trusted advisors to their clients, they recognized the value of having a Payroll Vault Franchise was an immediate and turn-key solution for them to tap into payroll services.

Knowing that the Phoenix/Scottsdale area is quickly becoming a small business mecca, the idea of owning a Payroll Vault location became even more appealing. Joe and Dave were confident that positioning a well-structured team in the Arizona market would provide them a unique opportunity to be a part of the burgeoning growth of Payroll Vault. Lucia Del Vecchio joins the ownership team with years of successful sales development and superior marketing ability.

“After visiting the Payroll Vault headquarters for Discovery Day, we were impressed by the foundation and systems we saw in the corporate office. The idea of having a payroll business that we can have up and running right away, and being part of the Payroll Vault Brand, really made sense. We are looking forward to growing our Arizona Team and Re -Defining payroll in the desert,” stated Dave Hopkins.
