What Makes Us Unique

Bookkeeping for Restaurants

Restaurants and hospitality businesses are unique organizations with unique needs. Foolproof Bookkeeping was formed specifically with this client base in mind. We appreciate the great food, special moments, and magical experiences that restaurant owners and staff bring to the world. We’re also appreciative of how difficult doing business in this industry is, from thin margins, to demanding customers, to the impacts of COVID-19.

We’re here to help you streamline your bookkeeping activities to reduce extra work and frustration from your plate (no pun intended), and to give you rich and useful data and information that can help inform your business decisions.

We’re focused on restaurants and the hospitality industry not only because we love it, but because we have extensive experience working in the industry, both on the administrative side, as well as the culinary side. We know what works and what doesn’t. Our proprietary viewpoint means that we talk your language and our systems will be both effective and informative.
