Culinary Accountants was built from the ground up to provide restaurateurs with corporate level finance and accounting solutions for a fraction of the cost.
Our partners include accountants and restaurateurs, with two things in common - intimate knowledge of the hospitality industry and unparalleled financial expertise. Pictured above are President Matt Hetrick, CPA and partners Sheri Powell, CPA and Chris Oland.
Our team is American in-sourced from all over, from Idaho to Tennessee, New Mexico to Washington, DC. We're passionate about offering expert accounting professionals the chance to stay in the workforce on their own terms, from stay at home moms to single parents to folks studying for their CPAs. Pictured above is our local DC team at President Matt Hetrick's Annapolis Restaurant, Preserve.
Our clients are as diverse as we are, from independent bars to multi-national chains to Michelin-starred restaurants with world-renowned chefs. The passion for great hospitality at profitable, enduring businesses motivates them, and us.
We structure our fees on a client by client basis, based on the specific needs of everyone we work with. We offer a range of options from providing a full service financial team for all your hospitality financial needs, to enterprise planning and startup assistance.
Full Service Finance Team
A single-source solution for all of your financial needs.
