Over time, Capitol Food Company has come to view GHJ as more than just an accounting firm but a true advisor and partner. This has led them to turn to GHJ to assist them with numerous initiatives to support their productivity and operations.

Capitol Food Company supplies ingredients and blends to the food and baking industry.


Having worked with Capitol Food Company for a number of years, the Firm has become a close advisor in helping them grow their business. Beyond the initial engagement, GHJ’s Food and Beverage Team has continued to develop a close relationship with the owners and regularly presents new ideas for improvements and solutions to challenges that arise.

This advisory and collaborative mindset assists with bringing in strategies to create both higher profitability and efficiencies. GHJ’s team continuously listens to Capitol Food Company about issues they are facing so they can provide viable solutions.

While being mindful of costs, GHJ has provided proactive advice relating to service needs, including income tax planning, estate planning, operational profitability studies, lease accounting implementation and connecting them with outside vendors, when appropriate.

For example, when the client mentioned wanting a stronger CFO, the GHJ Search and Staffing Team connected them with talent that better fit their needs.

GHJ has also helped Capitol Food Company make connections to others in the industry, including new customers, at the Firm’s exclusive food and beverage events.


By being a proactive advisor, GHJ has helped improve the client’s operations, address their pain points before issues arise and make connections where needed.

”GHJ has brought ideas to the table that we had not considered,” explained Capitol Food Company Vice President of Operations John Levi. “And those ideas have helped us reach the next level of success.”
