Mr. Payroll Services:
Mr. Payroll is a leader in the check cashing industry with more than 20 years experience. Our business strategy is to competitively offer uniquely-suited, financial services to working class customers. Founded in 1988 and offering franchises since 1990, Mr. Payroll is an industry leader in franchised check cashing services. It is also a subsidiary of Cash America International, Inc. (listed on NYSE under the symbol “CSH”), the world’s largest operator of pawnshops and specialty financial services. As of December 31, 2010, we have 116 franchised and company-owned facilities in 16 states.
Mr. Payroll provides valuable non-bank, financial services to hard-working individuals every day. A study conducted in 2008 by the Center for Financial Services Innovation reported that 40 million households (106 million individuals) in the U.S. were under banked. One of the most pressing needs of the “underbanked” is converting their hard earned paychecks into cash. A recent Federal Reserve Bulletin estimated that 28% of all working-class households have the need for check cashing services.*

David Hudson of Toot’n Totum Food Stores, where several Mr. Payroll check cashing franchised facilities are situated, discusses his company’s experience as a Mr. Payroll franchisee:
"Toot’n Totum has a long history with Mr. Payroll as its birthplace over 20 years ago. The first 17 years we operated as a landlord for Mr. Payroll experiencing customer growth inside our convenience stores from customers who were getting their checks cashed and, in turn, purchasing miscellaneous items inside and fuel outside.
Toot’n Totum Food Stores purchased the eight existing Mr. Payroll locations inside our stores 3½ years ago. We added two additional locations outside Amarillo after operating the original eight locations. Check cashing is our core business income although we have added money orders, wire transfers, utility payments and pre-paid services to our financial service platform. As the opportunity arises we will continue to look for additional sites to add to our current 10 locations."
