Payroll Vault was among 350 franchise brands, representing over 8,500 female franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review's research on the Top Franchises for Women. Payroll Vault's 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. 

Franchising is a terrific option for women seeking business ownership on a full- or part-time basis," said Michelle Rowan, president and COO of Franchise Business Review. "With so many franchise opportunities to choose from, it's critical to do in-depth research to understand how satisfied current female franchise owners are with the training and support, work/life balance, financial opportunity, culture, and leadership of any brand they're considering before making an investment. When you look at the brands on this year's list of the Top Franchises for Women, 89% of women said they enjoy being part of their franchise organizations and 88% said they enjoy operating the business, making them all excellent options for women looking to make the transition to business ownership. 

At Payroll Vault, we take immense pride in fostering an environment that empowers and supports women in business ownership," said Tricia Petteys, COO and Co-founder of Payroll Vault Franchising. "Our network of franchisees continues to grow, welcoming exceptional women from diverse backgrounds and industries, each bringing their unique talents, drive, and aspirations to our brand.
