Seattle Restaurant Consultant

Do you relate to the Greek myth of Sisyphus when it comes to managing your restaurant?

Stop the futility and
increase your profitability

I owned and operated my own successful restaurant for seventeen years. I am also a Certified Public Accountant. I’ve been in your shoes and through trial and error learned best practices for profitably running a restaurant. I’d like to share what I learned and show you how to implement the best accounting and back-of-house systems.


Jean Klein, CPA is not your typical "restaurant consultant"

 I will help you to implement systems and internal controls to track where your revenues are going and to prevent your profits and assets from vanishing. As a former long-time restaurant owner, I know first hand the real scoop on some of the unacceptable practices that can go on in a restaurant. A restaurant is a financial black hole if no one is minding the financial details.

What people are saying

"We were looking for someone to come in and help us get our financial numbers in order which at the time were unfortunately a mess. Jean Klein at Small Restaurant Specialist was able to get us on track in no time. She is friendly, informative and very helpful.
