April 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // ARLINGTON, VA - BookKeeping Express (BKE) is proud to announce we have been selected as the trusted accounting and bookkeeping service provider for all UFood Grill franchisees. The quick-service health food restaurant will open its first franchise location in May and BKE will manage the implementation of their back-office technology and all the day-to-day financial tasks. As future UFood Grill franchises open, BKE will be the mandated outsourced bookkeeping and accounting service provider.
“As we continue to position UFood Grill as the leader in the franchised healthy fast-casual space, we made a decision to protect our franchisees from having to spend time and energy on anything other than building an exceptional customer experience around delicious and nutritious food,” UFood Grill CEO Salvatore Rincione says. “BKE helps us lower the barrier of entry for prospective franchisees, by removing an intimidating set of back-office functions. BKE also makes us feel at ease knowing that our franchisee’s books are accurate, up-to-date and standardized across all of our locations.”
BKE has a long track record of providing best-in-class outsourced accounting and bookkeeping to quick-service restaurant franchises, as well as franchise concepts in a variety of other industries. BKE is already the mandated bookkeeping partner for all new Amada Senior Care franchises, as well as every All About People franchisee. Additionally, BKE is a bookkeeping partner for Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill, Anytime Fitness, Great Clips, Waxing the City, Bottle & Bottega, Dogtopia and a number of Dwyer brands – including Mr. Rooter, Aire Serv and Five Star Painting.
“UFood Grill is a great franchise concept with tons of potential,” BKE CEO Keith Mueller says. “Our team of expert bookkeepers is excited to start helping their franchisees grow and succeed by providing the best bookkeeping services available to restaurants like theirs.”
BKE provides the best back-office services available to franchises by combining bookkeeping expertise, technology and a deep understanding of their clients’ business operations. BKE ensures each one of the franchisees it serves keep accurate and up-to-date accounting records that comply with their franchisor’s accounting standards and use the franchisor’s preferred reporting format and metrics. Franchisors use these reports to aggregate the financials for their Item 19 reporting obligations. Having BKE as a trusted provider attracts new franchisees, often first time business owners themselves, letting them hit the ground running with no accounting or bookkeeping experience needed.
BKE was founded in 1984 in California and has since grown into the leader of outsourced accounting and bookkeeping for franchises and small- and medium-sized businesses. Now headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, BKE employs a team of bookkeepers who are experts in technological and financial best practices for the industries and franchises we serve. We remove the need for franchisees and business owners to spend time on day-to-day accounting tasks by providing back-office software setup, bank reconciliation, payroll, expense management, financial reporting and many more services.
