I started Vantage Franchises to help people achieve both personal and financial success. We accomplish this by investing heavily in our clients. We get to know them, their needs, goals and dreams, and work hard to exceed their expectations.
It is extremely gratifying to help our clients make their goals a reality. I hope we have the privilege of serving you in the near future. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at (800) 530-7210 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Rising through public accounting and tax management positions since 1979, Steve brings a significant depth of tax expertise, including the research and resolution of complex tax issues.

Steve has served as an adviser to potential Franchisees to assess the financial viability of the franchise concepts being considered.

Steven works very hard to dispel the myth that CPAs have no personality. We heard that one time, when he was taking one of those “red-eye” flights, he landed without his tray table in the full upright and locked position!
We are just kidding. Steve is a great guy with a terrific sense of humor, easy to talk to, and most important, very good at what he does.
