Payroll Vault Franchising Named a 2020

Top Low-Cost Franchise by Franchise Business Review


Independent Research Data Shows Franchisees are Highly Satisfied with Their

Investment in Payroll Vault


When Payroll Vault launched as a franchise concept, the opportunity for entrepreneurs across the nation to help support small business in their local professional community was created.


Franchise Business Review (FBR) provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. FBR 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.


More than 9,000 franchisees representing over 153 low-cost brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between July 2018 and February 2020. 

Payroll Vault’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity. 


“Many people never consider buying a franchise because they think they can’t afford it. But what they don’t know is that there are a number of very solid business opportunities out there that can provide the satisfaction and perks of business ownership but don’t require a huge financial investment,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “The low-cost franchises that made this year’s list are excellent options for those who are looking to make the leap to business ownership.”


“At Payroll Vault, we thrive with change and our culture is firmly based on flexibility and opportunity. During uncertain, as well as more stable times, we are thankful that we can provide a low-cost option for entrepreneurs to launch their dream of business ownership,” states Sean Manning, CEO/Founder. “Guiding our franchisees to their highest level of success is our top priority.”
