We speak your language

We offer you a dynamic team that’s at the forefront of legal and regulatory issues, reporting requirements, and compliance. And, because we serve more than 150 franchise and multi-unit clients, we have the breadth of expertise to analyze trends, forecast industry developments, and provide insights that will transform your operations.

This philosophy is the cornerstone of our future-focused lens. Lisa Manetta, consumer goods and services practice leader says, “I love when we bring a new client on, and we get to experience our team through their eyes. They see quickly that we not only understand and offer recommendations for their pressing day-to-day challenges, but we also offer our vision for how they can thrive 10, 20, and 30 years down the road.”

Our clients say

For most franchisees, their business income will be filtered through to their personal balance sheets. In other words, the sustainability of their businesses and the security of their families are very closely connected. That is why we emphasize the need for a good business advisor and an experienced wealth manager. For an efficient and effective integrated approach, we share our personal example. The specialists at Plante Moran have gained our trust. They do our business audits and estate and personal tax planning.
