"We’ve been working with PKF Texas for a little more than a year, and it’s been a really great experience. We’ve been very pleased with the team and the overall results of the audit program. They are responsive and respectful to our franchise owners, who are audited to ensure they are reporting themselves appropriately. The reporting has been great, as the PKF Texas auditors have uncovered a significant amount of underreported sales during their time working with us.

The level of knowledge the PKF Texas team has specifically related to franchise brands is key. The relationship building they do, as well as the internal audit team that manages the program, is as good as we have experienced. The level of professionalism they show to franchise owners and their knowledge of franchisee/franchisor relationship makes them a leader in the industry.

Carlos and his team are efficient and get through audits quickly and professionally. They have a reasonable pricing structure, are personable, and care about the relationship with us and those we have built with our franchisees.

We would recommend PKF Texas to any other franchisor that was starting out or had an existing audit program. They understand that relationships are the most important part of any program. They are protective of it while getting the results we need and finding unreported sales, all the while never damaging the franchisor relationship." -Eric Weeden, Audit Manager
