TYPE OF BUSINESS: StoneBridge Business Partners is a leading provider of value-added franchise compliance and internal auditing services. Our extensive client list includes leading franchisors in the U.S. and abroad for whom we have recovered millions of dollars over the last decade. We go beyond identifying problems to devising solutions that prevent the recurrence of problems, saving our clients even more money into the future.
Our mission is to help you build both accountability and relationships within your network. Accurate royalty payments benefit all of your individual franchise owners. Fraud and waste cut into the dollars available for marketing and promotional programs that advance their business as well as yours.
We detect common under-reporting problems as well as other issues that can diminish your profitability, such as inefficiencies and mismanagement; accounting system weaknesses; employee theft; insufficient loss prevention programs; poor inventory control.
Our professionals include certified public accountants, certified fraud examiners, certified internal auditors and accredited business valuators / senior appraisers. Our paperless office extends into the field; auditors employ laptops, portable scanners and wireless network capabilities to reduce the paperwork burden associated with audits. Advanced software provides rapid analysis and reporting.
We have audited hundreds of franchise owners, from Quick Service Restaurants to professional services organizations. We bring to every franchise and royalty audit a high degree of sensitivity for your relationships, and do everything we can do to help your franchisees improve their financial processes. It's our mission to make this a value-added experience for everyone involved.
