QSR / Franchise Accounting Services

Quick service restaurants (also known as QSRs) and franchises have unique demands related to their accounting practices. Unlike an individual fine dining establishment, or a small collection of casual dining eateries, QSRs require a specialized type of franchise accounting service – and RASI has a complete suite of services specifically designed to help your restaurants navigate this challenging business landscape!

Three key facets of QSR growth

QSRs and franchises have enjoyed relatively strong growth over the past few years, even in the face of a global pandemic. Those restaurants that have recognized the three key facets of QSR growth – financial growth, acquisition growth, and brand diversification – are particularly well-suited to keep the ball rolling forward in the years to come. 

But even in this relatively recession-proof business climate, it still helps to have the optimal franchise accounting services for your restaurant. Since QSRs and franchise restaurants have considerable POS data and labor costs to track, an integrated & automated approach is a great way to ensure your restaurant franchise accounting services are up to the task.

Let’s explore some different elements related to finding the right franchise accounting services for your restaurant, starting with one of the most critical factors; labor management.

QSR & Franchise Labor Management

Some QSRs and franchise restaurants have thousands of employees. It’s difficult enough tracking and staying compliant with a single restaurant, given the ever-changing tax laws and labor reporting requirements. 

Labor costs for QSR & franchise restaurants normally account for nearly a third of overall business costs. An automated and integrated restaurant franchise accounting service like RASI helps you manage this challenging aspect with relative ease. Payroll and compliance are major concerns for these types of restaurants. 

Thanks to RASI’s tech-savvy franchise accounting services for your restaurant, you’ll enjoy reduced IT expenses, enjoy superior time management (with the ability to focus resources on other pressing tasks), reduce human error and completely streamline your restaurant franchise accounting services.

Other Important Factors in QSR & Franchise Accounting Services for Your Restaurant

Beyond labor costs, there are other factors to weigh in choosing a restaurant franchise accounting service. Here are just some of the different categories QSR & franchises need to be concerned with:

Financial Accounting

RASI's financial accounting services include working with your team to record, summarize, and report on the multitude of transactions resulting from restaurant operations over time. These transactions are summarized within your business's financial statements, including the Balance Sheet, P&L, and Statement of Cash Flow, which highlight your restaurant's operational performance over a specified period.

Compliance Oversight

Compliance oversight within a restaurant franchise accounting service is often overlooked, even though issues related to compliance can result in severe fines & penalties, costly legal action, and additional headaches. QSRs and franchises have an abundance of variables related to day-to-day reporting – ensure the franchise accounting services for your restaurant are always compliant (and RASI’s are).

Financial Period End Audits and Operational Financial Reviews

Period End Audits and Operational Financial Reviews aid in identifying latent weaknesses within your restaurant and assist in pinpointing areas within the business to capitalize on. Proactive operators can utilize these reviews for streamlining processes, saving costs, and engaging their management teams!

Daily & Weekly Cash Reporting

Using RASI’s Cash Management Platform, QSR and franchise operators can receive daily/weekly expense and deposit reconciliations, keeping a constant eye on your restaurant’s cash flow. Understanding your true cash position ensures you remain proactive and avoid any possible avoid bank fines or penalties!

Accurate Budgeting

A strategic and accurate restaurant budget plan is your establishment’s roadmap to success. Are you aware of your QSR / franchise restaurant’s break-even point? If you’re unsure, it’s critical that you align your establishment with an automated, integrated restaurant franchise accounting service to make your budget work for you so you can focus on realistic growth plans to greater profits!
