The building is expected to include an event center and fitness center on the first floor and additional office space on the first floor, according to a site plan approved by the Waukee City Council in May.
VizyPay was started by three entrepreneurs who each either had credit card processing experience or were previously small business owners, according to the company’s online bio. The three combined their experiences to develop a processing program aimed specifically at small- and medium-sized businesses.
Earlier this month, VizyPay announced it had processed more than $1 billion in payments since it began in 2017. The firm expects to reach $2 billion in payment processing in 2021.
The growth means the company will soon need to hire additional employees, said Mac Nab, the company’s co-founder. Currently, VizyPay employs 35 full-time workers and expects to have about 45 by next summer, he said.
“We’re growing quickly, even through [the pandemic],” Mac Nab said. “The new building will allow us to hire and expand our operations to up to 145 [employees] in Iowa.”
Included in VizyPay’s new headquarters will be an entertainment area that will allow the company to entertain clients, Mac Nab said. More importantly, however, outside organizations will be able to use the space free of charge, he said. The only caveat is that groups buy their food and beverages from one of VizyPay’s small business clients.
The entertainment area will take up about 3,000 square feet, he said. The remainder of the space will be used for office and shipping.
“We’ll have an open floor-plan design that will allow us to spread people out,” Mac Nab said.
