GBQ is proud to announce that Dustin Minton, CPA, has joined the firm as a partner within the assurance practice. Based in the Cincinnati office, Dustin will lead GBQ’s national restaurant industry efforts.

Dustin has over 20 years of public accounting experience, including 15 years working with many of the nation’s fastest-growing restaurants and most well-respected brands across all segments of the industry, including franchisors, franchisees, independents, emerging brands, startups, and mature concepts. Prior to joining GBQ, Dustin was a partner and restaurant practice leader at Henry & Horne LLP, BDO USA, LLP, and SS&G, Inc., which was acquired by BDO in 2015.

“Our market insights indicate that there is an unmet need at this time for a firm focused on the private company, mid to smaller size restaurants. With Dustin’s leadership, we plan to be the firm that fulfills that need,“ said Tom Powers, Director of Assurance Services.

Dustin specializes in providing accounting and consulting services for privately held restaurants and franchisors. In addition to traditional audit, review and compilation services, he also consults with restaurants on best practices related to internal controls, benchmarking, franchise development, corporate structures, financing options, and growth strategies.
