Payroll Vault Franchising Named a Top 50 Franchise for Women by Franchise Business Review



Independent Survey Shows Female Franchise Owners are Highly Satisfied with Payroll Vault’s Performance


Greenwood Village, Colorado, April 15, 2020 – Payroll Vault was recently named a top franchise by Franchise Business Review in its 2020 Top Franchises for Women Report.


Payroll Vault is a boutique-style full-service payroll company designed for small business. Founded by a career CPA that identified the benefits of separating payroll from traditional accounting to achieve more efficient results, Payroll Vault focuses on the needs of local small and mid-sized businesses and lends entrepreneurs the advantage of stepping into a multi-billion-dollar market place.


Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.

Payroll Vault was among 307 franchise brands, representing nearly 7,700 female franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research on the Top Franchises for Women. Payroll Vault franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including leadership, training & support, financial opportunity, and work/life balance. 


“The franchise industry provides many options to women seeking business ownership on a full- or part-time basis in multiple sectors,” says Michelle Rowan, President and COO of Franchise Business Review. “The number of franchise opportunities can be overwhelming, so it’s critical to examine feedback from other female franchise owners on how well the franchise meets their expectations in terms of support, work/life balance, financial opportunity, and other key areas of business ownership. The brands on this year’s list are all excellent options for women looking to make the transition to owning and operating their own business.


“It’s exciting to see so many women entering into the franchising industry and even more so, the Payroll Vault brand. They are flourishing in their local business communities as strong leaders,” stated Tricia Petteys, COO/Co-founder. “We continue to be excited and honored to receive FBR’s recognition as a Top Franchise for Women.  Payroll Vault's main priority is the success of our franchisees and providing entrepreneurial opportunities in a collaborative and supportive environment.”
