Padgett Business Services… Where Your Success Takes Root
A Vision Of Growth
In 1965, Walter Padgett had a vision. As a small business owner in rural Athens, Georgia, he witnessed local business owners struggling with the financial aspects of running their own companies. His solution? Create an accounting and financial services company focused on helping small business owners grow and thrive. Over the years, that vision became Padgett Business Services and its parent company, SmallBizPros, Inc.
Today, that original vision is still driving Padgett to be the leader in an industry it founded 40 years ago. With a network of over 400 North American offices, Padgett is one of the largest privately-owned small business services firms in the country. Over 25,000 small businesses rely on Padgett for a wide array of business services including accounting, financial reporting, tax, government compliance, payroll services and general business consulting. With plans to open another 400 franchise locations over the next 5 years, Padgett is actively recruiting new franchise owners to help build on their proven formula of success.
