1966 - The company began as PADGETT BUSINESS SERVICES® in Athens GA, to assist small business owners with their bookkeeping and tax needs. PADGETT quickly distinguished itself by using a proprietary-designed bookkeeping system created especially for the small business sector.
1975 - The company grew rapidly in the Georgia market and after significant growth for several years, entered into the franchising arena.
1987 - Having established numerous franchises throughout the United States, PADGETT crossed the border and opened the first Canadian franchise.
1994 - Scott Hull started the Dayton franchise with 15 years of accounting experience.
1996 - Padgett began working in Washington, DC with appearances before the U.S. Senate and House to testify on behalf of small business owners. With so much pending legislation in Washington that was so important to PADGETT clients, The Padgett Foundation was born two years later.
1999 - Recognizing that the small business sector was not serviced properly by the payroll industry, we initiated PayTrak Payroll Services® – now powered by a nationally recognized payroll partner.
2002 - The corporate name of the company officially changed to SmallBizPros, Inc. in order to more accurately reflect who we are: the Small Business Experts. Our local offices continue to operate as PADGETT BUSINESS SERVICES®.
2013 - Today there are over 400 PADGETT BUSINESS SERVICES® offices in the United States and Canada. We continue to expand throughout the U.S. and Canada.
2017 - PADGETT BUSINESS SERVICES® has celebrated over 50 years of helping Small Business clients in the United States and continue to grow and tailor to small business needs. We help to keep you up to date and in compliance with continuously changing tax laws.
