PURE Restaurant Solutions

PURE Restaurant Solutions was founded with the strong belief that restaurant operators are at their best when they are servicing a guest or preparing the next great meal for them.  This puts the focus of a restaurant’s back office and makes it our responsibility.  We ensure this aspect runs smoothly through our daily/weekly accounting, including:

  • Financial reporting (weekly and/or monthly)
  • Payables
  • Payroll
  • Sales tax filings
  • Other duties such as benchmarking and forecasting
  • Consulting

PURE has serviced many restaurants, including those in quick service, fast-casual and fine dining.  It has helped both independent restaurants and franchise concepts with their back office accounting.  In addition to restaurant accounting, the company also services its clients through consulting and other value-added services.

We have helped our clients in a variety of ways, including fractional CFO and controller services, operational advisory, compilation of prior year’s data for tax filings and new/ongoing business planning.  In each case, we have brought an increased level of expertise and sophistication to our clients through our leadership as well as by applying industry best practices.
