We know restaurants


Restaurant finance made crystal clear

Isn't it about time that you worked with a finance and accounting professional who understands your business?  We are a group of restaurant industry finance professionals who bring big company expertise to restauranteurs across the country.  We founded this firm with the belief that "Operators should operate".  

Dealing with accounts payable, payroll, financial reporting, and other finance related activities take you or your managers away from your team and your guest; the most important part of your business.  We believe that the more time you or your managers spend working with your guests, the more opportunity you have to increase sales and profit.  You didn't open a restaurant to do paperwork, did you?

What do we believe?

  1. Operators should spend time operating
    • Spending hour after hour in an office doesn’t increase customer service or increase sales
  2. Every operator can be more successful  
    • We provide you with the tools in order to understand your business better and capture opportunities 
  3. Accounting isn’t enough
    • Accountants do the books, we give you a complete picture of your business….product mix, trends, areas of opportunity, we know your business
  4. Client service is a passion
    • We exist to make your life easier, period.

DineStrategy is a restaurant finance and accounting firm offering a full range of services in the areas of finance, tax and systems.  Unlike other firms, we only work with restaurant operators.  What does this mean to you?  It means we know the restaurant business....period.  Having worked with several hundred restaurants, we have confronted and solved many of the issues you face, speak the same language you do, and are focused on your operations and profitability.  We take a comprehensive financial approach to understanding your restaurant and continually look for ways to improve sales, profit and your guests’ experience.

With DineStrategy, you can count on us to know the numbers, as well as the nuances unique to your business. Contact us to learn more about why DineStrategy creates value for its clients.
