Note From Our Founder

I began my career in a small accounting firm with high end clientele that included; the former president of Nicaragua, his family members and close personal friends all with businesses throughout the world. There, I performed many small audits, reviews, compilations, processes implantations and tax returns. I realized then that people have a difficult time finding quality accountants that add value to their organization.

I founded Gourmet Accounting Solutions to solve this problem and meet the needs of small to midsize restaurants. I went to a high school where our school motto was “men for others”. This was instilled in me during those formative years, but it wasn’t till about 5 years ago, that I truly applied this principal to my life. We bring this belief to the table, it’s what differentiates us from other accounting firms.

I founded this firm because I wanted to create an amazing organization where our core values are lived out daily. We partner with our clients, and as a team, we strive for excellence. We want to become the most trusted and competent accounting firm, by helping out clients create lasting legacies in the restaurant industry. I am passionate, energetic, and full of great ideas on how to improve our client’s business. I hope that you will give my concept a chance and let us compliment your recipe for success!!!!
