Ace Handyman Services Learns Why They Can Always Call Upon Paychex

Finding the right tool for the job makes all the difference, and recently for many Ace Handyman Services franchisees that tool happened to be the telephone. More than 70 franchisees took the offer from a relationship manager to call and get information about the employee retention tax credit, including corporate Ace Handyman, leading to the Paychex ERTC Service helping secure more than $1 million for the network.

"What struck me is (Paychex) listened to what I actually needed and not just giving me cookie-cutter solutions. I believe if you can’t do something at an exceptional rate, then outsource it. And that’s precisely what we do with our payroll and HR support.”
