Seeking Financial Visibility to Unleash Growth Potential
S&L Companies is the largest franchise group for Culver’s, one of the United States’ favorite burger chains. In the past five years alone, the group expanded from eleven restaurant locations to nearly 30, and added nine new partners to the business. With this rapid pace of growth, the burden on S&L’s central finance team naturally increased. The organization’s previous server based accounting system was unable to produce the auditable financial statements required for larger bank loans, which lead management to recognize that it was critical to move to a new financial management solution.

“The faster we grow, the more difficult it becomes for our two majority owners to maintain a hands-on approach with each restaurant. With Sage Intacct, we can now organize financials any way they need and provide better insight into the profitability of certain locations or groups of restaurants. With Sage Intacct, we are able to filter our financials by region to see trends and analyze key figures to determine which regions are able to sustain growth or need attention.” Tammy Getschman, Director of Accounting, S&L Companies
