Food & Hospitality


The food and hospitality industry is an ever-evolving game, particularly as we move into the unexpected climate of this new decade. As small and mediums-sized businesses try to adapt to an ever-changing world, the structure of your business is more important than ever.


Let’s get you maximising your profits.


Use your business speciality and we’ll use ours

A Chinese proverb says the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago – and the second best time is right now. What does this mean for you? Taking your time to craft an effective restaurant or café business plan is the most important groundwork you can complete.

As your partner in business, we help you to understand and prepare for:

  • Business and company registration
  • Registration for and compliance with tax
  • Liquor licensing laws
  • Penalty rate structure and the high cost of wages

Why Partner With Us?

Together, we will work through cashflow forecasting and budgeting, setting KPI’s for business benchmarking, viable marketing strategies, and so much more. If you have a question on any aspect of growing and developing,  we pool our resources to find you the most effective answer.

Once up and running, let our full service virtual CFO team take the financial reigns and re-focus on growing and running your new business.

Growth IQ has been the best thing for my fitness business, Studio 360 Cycle. Working with Josh and the team has been so much more than just sitting down with an accountant and talking numbers. He lives and breaths small business, he encourages new ideas and his continuing support and advise is what makes him a game changer – and it’s only been 5 months!
