Chris is the Operations Manager & Small Business Advisor at Prix Fixe Accounting. Prior to beginning his career with Prix Fixe Accounting, Chris spent most of his life in the hospitality industry, working his way up the ranks in restaurants focusing on local sourcing and sustainability. After years of working in restaurants, he realized that the industry was in the stone-age compared to others, and there was an opportunity to better serve the places he loved by doing more than working on the line. Chris is passionate about helping restaurants thrive by delivering insightful guidance and financial clarity, freeing chefs and restaurateurs to focus on what they’re most passionate about: cultivating unforgettable guest experiences.
