Industry Performance

Padgett Business Services is an award winning franchise, and our franchise owners have a booming market from which to grow their business. Consider that over 90% of all businesses in Canada are small businesses employing fewer than 20 people, and the total number of small businesses in Canada is nearly one million, and growing. As a Padgett franchise owner, this translates into a world of opportunity ready for your big ideas, your expertise, and your advice. Small business owners are busy selling and marketing their products or services, leaving them little time to focus on the daily and monthly financial challenges of their business. By employing your expertise and providing sound advice within the framework of our proven systems, you can help these small business owners to achieve their goals, and therefore help yourself to succeed in this growing industry.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

Our ideal candidates are those who enjoy working with numbers and determining what makes successful businesses tick. Although our franchise owners have a background in accounting, success does not depend on your accounting skills. Many of our most successful franchise owners came from careers where they used their strong accounting skills but weren't an accountant. They had worked in financially-oriented careers and enjoyed working with people. We welcome people who are able to network and interact with clients while delivering our financial products. Our successful franchise owners truly enjoy working with other entrepreneurs to help them reach their full potential.

We are on the constant lookout for success-driven, like-minded entrepreneurs seeking to cultivate a new business opportunity! Do you have an accounting background and would like to help other small business owners reach their goals? Do you have a strong desire to build your own thriving business in the process? If you see yourself in all of this, you may be a perfect fit for a franchise in accounting from Padgett.
