Leading franchise owner optimizes lease oversight with an all-in-one platform

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Mar. 31, 2022 — Sonoma, Calif.-based Diversified Restaurant Group (DRG) has adopted Yardi Corom® for comprehensive lease management and lessee accounting for FASB compliance across hundreds of restaurant locations. The single-platform solution provides ease of use and a 360-degree view of all leases for the growing company.

Designed for retail tenants and corporate occupiers, Yardi Corom is scalable for lease management, lessee accounting for FASB, GASB and IFRS requirements, along with occupancy tracking and desk hoteling for flexible workplaces. It also simplifies transaction management, facility maintenance and budget insight for capital projects. Configurable dashboards and reporting capabilities let users create branded reports with detailed metrics and data visualization.

DRG currently operates two brands —Taco Bell and Arby’s — across more than 322 locations and has helped develop the Taco Bell Cantina Share concept in several states. To optimize lease management, lessee accounting and transparency for all its locations, DRG selected Yardi Corom.

“We are passionate about growth, and we value that Yardi Corom is simple to use and not only gives us comprehensive insight into all our leases and locations, including lease abstractions, but also supports a 13-period accounting calendar and is customizable to meet the demands of franchise operators,” said Jim Brandon, CFO at DRG.
