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


Independent Survey Shows Female Franchise Owners Are Highly Satisfied with Payroll Vault Performance


Greenwood Village, Colorado – March 25, 2021 – Payroll Vault was recently named a top franchise by Franchise Business Review in its 2021 report on the Top Franchises for Women.


Payroll Vault is a unique opportunity fueled by the multi-billion-dollar payroll and workforce industry that is growing fanatically. When Payroll Vault launched as a franchise concept in 2012, it opened the door for entrepreneurs across the nation to help support small business in their local professional community.


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 289 franchise brands, representing 8,453 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 provides many options to women seeking business ownership on a full- or part-time basis,” says Michelle Rowan, President and COO of Franchise Business Review. “The number of franchise opportunities available 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. When you look at the brands on this year’s list of the top franchises for women, a whopping 88% of women said they enjoyed owning and operating their own business, making them all excellent options for women looking to make the transition to owning and operating their own business. 


“Each year it is inspiring to see more women enter the franchising industry and even more so, the Payroll Vault brand,” stated Tricia Petteys, COO/Co-founder. “As a brand, we are aware of the many choices that are available and are honored that they choose Payroll Vault. We continue to be excited and grateful 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.”
