HR Tools Build Ace Handyman Services Franchisee a Solid Foundation

Stephen Lutter needed HR support for his rapidly expanding franchise, and with help from Paychex he now has more time to recruit, hire “exceptional employees”, and market his business.


"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.”
