Kwik Chek enhances employee experience with innovative on-demand pay

solution that allows access to earnings before payday.


NEW YORK (Dec. 4 2019) – DailyPay, the leading provider of the daily pay benefit offered through employers that allows employees to receive instant access to their earned pay, today announced a partnership with Kwik Chek Food Stores. Through this partnership, Kwik Chek has made DailyPay available to more than 600 employees throughout Texas and Oklahoma, who now have the flexibility to make secure, instant transfers of earned but unpaid pay 24/7/365.


“Kwik Chek immediately saw the benefit of helping their employees and producing positive retention results for the company,” said Jason Lee, CEO, DailyPay. “As a regional brand that competes with larger national brands, they wanted to offer a benefit that turned them into a preferred employer in the hiring market. After launching DailyPay, Kwik Chek saw a very impressive adoption rate, with 42% of their employees opting into this new benefit.”


“Offering DailyPay is another way for us to show existing and prospective employees how much their hard work means to us,” said Rick Tellez, Chief Financial Officer, Kwik Chek. “We want to show our workforce that we understand how hard it can be to wait for the next paycheck, especially when they experience an unforeseen expense or need to pay a bill on time and don’t have the necessary funds available. Enabling them to access their earnings before payday helps them to be more productive at work because they are less stressed financially.”


With DailyPay, employees can transfer their accrued but unpaid pay to any bank account, pay card or debit card, prior to their next payday. Employees can also track their accumulated earnings during each pay period using the balance feature. In this way, DailyPay provides Kwik Chek employees with a safeguard against unexpected expenses, and an incentive to work scheduled or even additional shifts to increase their available balance.


“By adding earned wage access to their benefits package, Kwik Chek has set itself apart from the competition in a very impactful way,” Lee said. “This benefit helps increase the value of employee pay without increasing the amount of their pay; it helps employees pay their bills on time and the company stays within budget. It’s a victory for all involved.”


DailyPay is the only instant pay technology that is fully compliant in all 50 states and can be implemented at no cost to businesses that choose to offer it.
