Every time we meet with a new restaurant owner, we rediscover (together) the power of having the right information at your fingertips. Too many restaurants are trying to grow with an anvil tied around their legs because they don’t know how to spot financial problems BEFORE they become a catastrophe — or they are missing out on real chances for healthy growth … simply because they were blind to the data that would have shown them the way.
Too many restaurant owners are evaluating their success by “top line sales and what’s in the bank” instead of what is possible when you have a true expert in your corner.
real-time Bookkeeping you can rely upon
You need to have a system for categorizing, paying, and planning for expenses … not only so you can see what’s actually happening — but so you can make informed financial decisions based on real-time numbers using technology now available to restaurant owners (if only they knew about them).
ACCOUNTING: Handled without pain
Discover the peace of mind that is possible in knowing your accounting is handled for you and done RIGHT. Never worry about keeping up with vendors, sales tax, or payroll tax requirements again.
The right advice, at the right time
It doesn’t help to have your accountant tell you that you are running in the red — after you’ve buried yourself in debt. Let us point you where you need to go and help you make the right decisions along the way.
UNDERSTAND YOUR ACCOUNTING & WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
You have the freedom to work on your restaurant while someone else handles your accounting. When you need to make financial decisions, our process ensures you have clarity to make informed choices at the right time.

Using Tim and his team at Financial Optics is more effective and provides a higher value than a full-time CFO. Especially for a small business like us.
