Jonas Moretz, former owner of Hickory Family Pharmacy, client 2012-2019
“The best thing they do, frankly, is form that personal relationship with the customer to understand their business inside and out. They knew our pharmacy well by the time I saw the opportunity to sell. I wanted to work until I was 70, but I didn’t know how long it would take to sell, so I started looking into it in my late 60s. Because our business was run so well, we ended up with six groups of people who wanted to buy it, and I sold it in 2016.”

They understand the industry trends and help me identify the ones that benefit my pharmacy business. I know that without the firm, my pharmacy wouldn’t be where it is today.”

“During an especially challenging season, Scotty [Sykes] and the team went above and beyond for me and my pharmacy. They didn’t just do the accounting and tax planning; they treated my pharmacy like their own. I had the confidence that they handled everything in my best interests and that trust is worth every penny I pay them. Their accounting and industry knowledge have made all the difference in my pharmacy.”

“Working with Sykes & Company, P.A. has been one of the best things for my pharmacy. They have helped me mitigate my taxes in ways that no other pharmacy advisor has done for me before. My tax burden used to be high but because of some strategic planning, that is no longer the case. I get proactive accounting from the firm and because of that, I know exactly how my pharmacy is doing every day.”

Allan Fettig, firm relationship since 2016
“Sykes & Company was a vital part of our pharmacy purchase. Ollin [Sykes] flew out during negotiations and helped significantly during that time. The entire team at the firm knows this unique industry and are willing to answer any of our questions. Their knowledge base for the pharmacy business is second to none.”
Diana Lischin, RPh, Pharmacist/Owner, Coats Pharmacy, firm relationship since 2009
“At a time when I didn’t know if my pharmacy would survive, Sykes and Company provided me with the tools and told me how to turn everything around. They provided a comprehensive review of my pharmacy and a plan. They were honest and very upfront about the hard work that I needed to commit to. Nine years later, I relish that honesty and the relationship that has developed with the team at the firm. They are like family and greet you with a hug.”
“When we bought our pharmacy in 2017, Sykes and Company was instrumental in that process and in getting our accounts set up. They stay informed on all the changes in our industry and proactively help us implement anything that impacts our pharmacy business.”
Alicia Wolfe, Klingensmiths Pharmacy
“There are many community pharmacies out there competing against the big chains. As a chain whose slogan is ‘your neighborly drugstores,” we find that neighborly sentiment when we deal with Sykes & Company. We are a small community pharmacy chain with eight stores. Sykes is attentive to our needs. They understand our strengths and weaknesses; they know where we need extra guidance and the areas we can handle on our own.

When TW Taylor began working with Sykes & Company, P.A. in early 2017, it was to purchase his two pharmacies that make up The Williamsburg Drug Company. After the purchase, TW quickly entrusted the firm with the accounting and greatly values Ollin Sykes’ advice. Working with Sykes & Company, P.A. has given TW the ability to focus on his clients when he is at the pharmacy. He credits much of the rapid growth and profitability of his pharmacy in the last year to Ollin and his team. According to TW, “If you’re not with Ollin, you’re falling behind.”

Tim Finley first contacted Ollin Sykes when he was looking at buying a pharmacy. Working with Sykes & Company reduced the time it took him to buy a pharmacy by months and gave him peace of mind with the day-to-day operations of his business. Through the reports he gets from Sykes, he can make changes in the pharmacy that directly improve his bottom line.
Ken Hardin started in the pharmacy business 40 years ago and has owned as many as six stores at a time. In addition to giving him peace of mind, Sykes & Company helped him through buying out the other half of the pharmacy when his business partner passed away. And they’re helping him prepare to sell his pharmacy to the operations manager in a few years. Learn more about what Sykes & Company provides for Hardin’s Drug in this video.
