Patriot understands the challenges that face small business owners every single day, because over 30 years ago, it clawed and scratched through a painful startup process of its own. CEO Mike Kappel started Patriot in the basement of factory that had no heat or air conditioning. Customers never visited -- the only frequent visitors came in the form of rats and snakes. That's when the inspiration to provide small businesses with an easy, affordable payroll software was born. Patriot's mission is to take the stress of payroll away from American small businesses.
