Calhoun Management Corporation operates 89 Wendy’s locations and Peachtree Restaurant Group operates 11 Wing Stop locations throughout North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee, which all enable their employers to pay wages electronically.

As HR Director for Calhoun Management, Sandi Shaw manages HR and payroll for nearly 2,400+ employees. Wisely has been a staple for the companies’ payroll since 2008, despite changing payroll vendors and even bringing payroll in-house for a short period of time.

Sandi wanted to share what the relationship with ADP® has been like and how Wisely has benefited the company and its employees.

Our employees love it, it’s easy to use and it saves my team a lot of time because they no longer process any paper checks. It also saves the company the money we used to spend on paycheck processing. So, I’d call that a win-win for all.

Calhoun Management Corp.


  • Wanted employees in all stores to receive their pay via direct deposit or pay card and eliminate having to process manual checks.

How ADP helped

  • Wisely® by ADP provided a means for employees to receive their pay right away on payday, helping to eliminate the need for the payroll team to issue paper checks, which can take several days to clear the bank.
