Diversified Restaurant Group picks Delaget for payroll and accounting services

SAINT LOUIS PARK, Minn., June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Diversified Restaurant Group, LLC, a restaurant group that manages 150 Taco Bell restaurants in Northern California and Nevada, today announced a new payroll and accounting partnership with Delaget, LLC, a QSR leader in helping franchises run more effective operations with loss prevention, analytics, reporting, and payroll solutions.

“We reached the 150 store mark through acquisitions of larger franchise groups, and we want to continue to grow our restaurant portfolio. You can’t run – or grow – a company effectively with multiple different systems and processes. After an analysis, we determined that we needed to outsource our payroll and accounting to eliminate redundancies, make us more effective in running our current portfolio of stores, and help make us nimbler and more competitive for future acquisitions,” said Erich Moxley, SVP and Franchisee at Diversified Restaurant Group, LLC.

Diversified Restaurant Group is leveraging Delaget Books, a time-saving payroll and accounting service focused on multi-unit operators. Delaget’s streamlined processes improve profitability in the multi-unit space. With Delaget Books, franchise owners save time by having Delaget experts process accounts payable and receivable, daily cash reports, P&Ls, payroll, and expense reports, and handle other accounting tasks.

“We looked at several other competitors, and we found that Delaget was the right partner for us. We already trust Delaget for our restaurant reporting, their team has a deep understanding of the industry, and other outsourcing services didn’t have all the bells and whistles we were looking for. These reasons made it a much easier decision to outsource,” said Erich.

Outsourcing will also allow Erich and the team at Diversified to focus what really matters to their business.

“Instead of spending time managing numerous vendors, invoices, and other payroll and accounting functions, outsourcing will allow us to focus on developing our business, acquiring and building stores, and working with our middle and store level management teams to run a more efficient operation,” said Erich. “I didn’t become a franchisee to run a payroll company or CPA firm. I became a franchisee because I want to run restaurants,” he added.

“At Delaget, our mission is to help restauranteurs run smarter, more profitable restaurants. By outsourcing payroll and accounting, the team at Diversified will have more time to focus on strategic initiatives and growing their business. We’re excited to partner with them and help them make their growth easier,” said Jason Tober, Delaget CEO.

19 KFC franchisees choose Delaget Guard to reduce loss to employee theft and error

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn., June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Delaget, LLC, the only data analytics and business process outsourcing experts focused on the QSR industry, today announced the signing of 19 new KFC franchise customers who have licensed Delaget Guard, its loss prevention software focused on reducing employee theft and error. The new signings come on the heels of the KFC Technology Committee’s successful completion of a 120-day pilot of Delaget Guard (read the press release).

The Hodges Management Group, a 30-unit KFC, Taco Bell, and Dairy Queen franchise, is one of these new customers.

“Delaget Guard gives me an easy way to see what’s happening at our restaurants. Using the software, I found managers who were doing refunds that weren’t legitimate – they were just pocketing money. In fact, one of the employees we caught stole to the tune of around $4,000,” said Bobby Bange, an Above Store Leader at The Hodges Management Company.

Jason Zakaras, owner of Zak Foods, a 27-unit KFC franchise, decided to partner with Delaget because of how easy the software is to use.

“We wanted to go with Delaget because I know how robust their tools have become. It was a no brainer for me because I know Delaget is a world-class resource for our teams and they provide a very intuitive solution,” Jason said.

“Because Delaget Guard has been tested and proven by KFC corporate, franchisees can be confident that it’s going to work in their business and help them improve margins. We’ve seen a tremendous response so far, which is exciting to see because it means that the software is really making a difference,” said Dave Sandhoefner, Delaget’s Chief Revenue Officer.
