Like the Greek myth of Sisyphus do you feel like your restaurant is an exercise in futility?

Let me help
before you get crushed!

As a CPA and former owner/operator of a successful restaurant for 17 years and ultimately a seller, I have been in the trenches. Let me help you increase your profitability through better accounting and back of house systems.


Jean Klein, CPA is not your typical "Seattle restaurant consultant"

  I will help you to implement systems and internal controls to track where your revenues are going and to prevent your profits and assets from vanishing. As a former long-time restaurant owner, I know first hand the real scoop on some of the unacceptable practices that can go on in a restaurant.

What people are saying

We were looking for someone to come in and help us get our financial numbers in order which at the time were unfortunately a mess. Jean Klein at Small Restaurant Specialist was able to get us on track in no time. She is friendly, informative and very helpful. We still use her on a consulting basis when unknown financial situations arise.
