“Sykes & Company is incredibly proactive. We went from owing the IRS to being able to afford to pay our taxes. We know what our margins look like at all times and they always deliver financial reports on time, and in a way we can read and understand them. If there is ever a question, we can call anyone in the firm and get answers.”

“When we were buying our pharmacy in 2015, Sykes & Company was there for the entire process. They connected us with all the right people, helping us establish the partnerships vital to our pharmacy business. We wouldn’t be here if they were not advising us from the very beginning.”
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.
Sykes Client Video Testimonials
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.”
Cole Sandlin began working with Sykes & Company, P.A. in early 2013 when he and his wife were preparing to purchase their first pharmacy, Fred’s Pharmacy in Hamilton, Alabama.

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.
