Solutions for today — and insights for tomorrow

Anticipating fluctuations in customers’ tastes and behaviors is challenging. So is predicting what’s next and best with technology or how the changes in tax law will impact you. How can you keep up — especially when you’re worried about food and labor costs, tighter margins, and an increasingly competitive landscape?

We’ll help you break past the logjam of competition. With a national footprint and more than 350 restaurant clients, we’re one of the few accounting firms with a dedicated restaurant practice. We take great pride in our entrenchment in the restaurant community, including industry venues such as the National Restaurant Association, the International Franchise Association, and the Restaurant Finance and Development Conference, to stay ahead of the issues, trends, and laws affecting you. Additionally, our alliance with CFO Advisors allows us to provide in-depth knowledge when it comes to financial reporting, data integration, business analytics, and industry-specific CFO mentoring.

Whether you’re a growing system or a more mature brand, we offer custom insights and high-level strategies for your business. We’ll help you improve financial performance, optimize profits, and implement transformational changes.

Personal, seamless service

Nine out of 10 clients say we’re better than our competition. We believe that comes from our personal service. Whether you’re a single location, a franchised restaurant concept, or a private-equity-owned establishment, we build lasting relationships to foster a client-focused, collaborative culture. And our team members will stick with you into the future because, at 11.9 percent, we have one of the lowest staff turnover rates in the industry.

“Whether you need a solution for today’s questions or future insights, we’ll provide the support you need,” says Mark Fleischer, consumer goods and services practice leader. “And you’ll recognize the same faces on your team year after year, which leads to meaningful relationships; we’ll not only know you and your system, but you’ll also be able to trust we always have your best interests in mind.”

Our clients say

Meritage Hospitality Group has been a client of Plante Moran’s for over 10 years. In that time, we’ve grown from owning 50 restaurants to 170 restaurants. Throughout our growth, Plante Moran has been a great partner from an auditing and compliance standpoint. Our state and local tax compliance in particular has increased dramatically as operations expanded from one state to seven. The Plante Moran team is always very efficient, responsive, professional, and approachable. I’ve been really happy with everyone who has worked with us over the years. 

Gary Rose VP, CFO, and COO of Meritage Hospitality Group, Inc.
