Flix Brewhouse is a unique concept — the planet’s only first-run dine-in cinema microbrewery, so it’s really three businesses under one roof. We needed an accounting firm that could marshal a unique set of professionals skilled in retail, hospitality and brewery verticals, and keep pace with our high growth trajectory. Baker Tilly is a terrific fit. We get plenty of hands-on partner attention, a full suite of services from audit, to tax to consulting comparable to the Big Four, but with reasonable fees. Moving from a local firm to Baker, Tilly was one of my best moves in growing this business.Allan Reagan – CEO, Flix Brewhouse

Baker Tilly has been our most trusted business advisor for more than 10 years. Their entire team has an incredible understanding of our company and our industry. They provide so much more than “just an audit or review”, including very helpful due diligence assistance and tax planning.Troy Hanke, Chief Financial Officer of Manna, Inc./Bridgeman Foods which operates more than 440 restaurant units

Very responsive to our immediate needs while looking to the horizon for legislation that might affect our business. The Baker Tilly team is very knowledgeable of the restaurant industry as well. I especially like the ability to “customize” the level of service to the project at hand. Very professional team with exceptional interpersonal skills.Janelle Reents, President of Monical’s Pizza Corporation
