    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.
