We serve customers in all segments of the food-service industry and have had significant experience as Chief Financial Officers and Directors of Finance in the fine dining, casual dining, family, buffets, fast casual, quick service, and specialty industry segments. We work with franchisors, franchisees and independent operators, especially emerging brands poised for rapid growth.
Our business consists of recurring outsourced CFO services and project consulting typically centered on reporting and controls. As CFO we are responsible for fulfilling all of the typical CFO duties, however we are also directly responsible for elevating the companies' overall back office systems, business approach & strategy. We do this in a number of ways including bringing our deep industry network and understanding of industry best practices to bear on the customer's business. Often our CFO engagements take on a mentoring role with the CEO to build the confidence to move the company to the next level. A very significant role that we fulfill in addition to CFO is that of Director of Finance/business analyst. This role is heavily focused on the use and dissemination of business analytics throughout the organization. In most situations this is the first time that the company has had this functionality. We are experts in the application of new technologies including cloud based systems. We have many technologies that we bring to each of our engagements. Almost all of these technologies are cloud based, which allows operators to spend less time in an office and more time growing their business.
We have worked with many national and regional brands over the past two decades. Our CFO engagements have included Einstein's Bagels, Smashburger, Big Boy, bds Mongolian Grill, Marlow's Taverns, Sterling Spoon Culinary Management, Fuddruckers , Bennigans, Holiday Deli, Whataburger, Backyard Burgers, Ryan's Steakhouses, Golden Corral, Johnny Carino's, Smoky Mountain Pizza, Willy's Mexicana Grill, Quiznos, The Rattlesnake Club, and many others.
