Restaurants

A La Carte Service

Understanding the nuances of the restaurant industry is essential to delivering exceptional service. In addition to providing traditional tax and assurance services, we frequently consult on private equity needs—whether your business is already backed or is seeking funds to help scale your concept.

When selecting an accounting firm, you’ll consider many factors—technical expertise, industry know-how, reputation, fees. Your ideal service team understands restaurant companies and the issues that affect you, including point-of-sale, leases, and food and beverage inventory controls. At Moss Adams we combine more than a century of accounting experience with industry expertise to deliver a powerful combination of intellectual capital, responsive service, and insight on the business, tax, and regulatory matters vital to your success.

Moss Adams has built a strong team dedicated to the restaurant industry. We know your industry inside and out, thanks to our involvement with industry leaders, associations, and industry-specific training and education. This means we’re up to date with the developments and challenges facing your business every day. It also means we’re able to jump in right away, bringing best practices to the table as well as insight and relevant operational solutions to your questions. This is a distinct advantage over generalist firms that may require time to be brought up to speed before any progress can be made.

COVID-19 Implications

During this unparalleled time, we’re closely monitoring circumstances so we can provide up-to-date guidance and support to help you combat uncertainty. You can also visit our dedicated web page detailing additional COVID-19 implications for you and your business.
