Expert Restaurant Group CPAs

Restaurants are highly competitive and cyclical in nature; they are significantly affected by tourism trends, the economy, and even the weather, all factors beyond anyone’s control.  Because of this, many restaurants operate on a slim margin and don’t have a lot of room for inefficiency. Having a trusted and experienced restaurant CPA on your side can make all of the difference.

For assistance with projecting revenues, maintaining inventory, purchasing restaurant equipment, and tax planning, it’s vital to use a CPA firm that understands the financial and tax challenges faced by businesses in the restaurant industry.

“I have had the privilege of working with Melinda for over a decade in my various companies.  When I first met with Melinda, she set herself aside from many of the other CPAs I was considering by being prompt, professional, and showing her knowledge without betraying any client confidences.  She has done a great job for me with various engagements including personal taxes, partnerships, LLCs, and C and S corporations.  She has worked with my veterinary practices, non-profit entities, manufacturing business, and beekeeping supply distributor that has an e-comm site as well as a brick and mortar store.
