Focus on what counts

Restaurants and Hospitality

Focused on Financials, So You Can Focus on Your Customers

Owners of restaurant and hospitality businesses face unique challenges. COVID-19 has demonstrated just how sensitive the industry is to the external and internal factors that affect financial performance, beyond just typical economic downturns, increased competition, increased regulatory scrutiny, and changes in consumer preferences.

How Citrin Cooperman Can Help

To survive in this ever-changing landscape, we bring our industry-specialized experience to help our clients adapt and thrive. For nearly 40 years, we have worked with hundreds of highly successful owners on winning strategies to protect, build, and grow their business. 

Citrin Cooperman is proud to be home to one of the leading restaurant and hospitality practices in the country. We have helped our loyal clientele – some of the highest-rated restaurants in the world, and their celebrity chefs – raise their financial efficiencies, reduce costs, and realize greater profitability. 


We have put together a COVID-19 Response Advisory Team with a number of services to help our restaurant and hospitality clients protect their business and manage operations beyond the COVID-19 crisis.

Our team of seasoned restaurant and hospitality professionals truly understands the unique needs of the hospitality business owner. Our depth and breadth of experience provides us with unique knowledge and perspective on what’s happening industry-wide, and we use that knowledge in order to provide the most comprehensive advice to our clients.
