Paychex was founded in 1971 by Tom Golisano, who started the company with only $3,000.[5][6]

The operation grew to include 18 franchises and partnerships, which were eventually consolidated into one private company in 1979. Paychex held an initial public offering in 1983 and began trading on the NASDAQ (PAYX).
