About this webinar

The Food and Beverage Industry has a reputation: the ‘problem children’ of the financial services world. But what if I told you that the things you could do to serve these clients better are the very things that can make working with them a lot clearer, easier, and frankly more rewarding for your practice?

In Less, but Better we will dig into five key metrics for the food and beverage industry –including an overview of what they indicate, and why they matter. But, we will also explore these KPIs from a bookkeeping process and advisory perspective. The takeaway is not just a better understanding of what matters most to restaurants and bars – it’s also actionable guidance on how to prioritize these items in a way that also simplifies your workflows and amplifies your value to food and beverage clients.


Course Objectives:

-Understand what makes restaurant accounting unique

-Understand fundamental KPI definitions and calculations

-Pinpoint the core variables needed and how to collaborate with clients to get them

-Learn to use the Chart of Accounts, data entry fields and general information architecture to streamline KPI tracking

-Learn to discuss KPI-related goals with clients and interpret and communicate results to clients

-Be able to demonstrate the added value of KPI-centered bookeeping and reporting to clients
