How do we help businesses?
The quick (and a little broad) version is that we help you become more data-driven by getting the answers you need out of your data by putting it into dashboards and doing analysis on it for you.
We use that prior performance data (ex. financial and marketing data) to help influence your future strategy, leaning into what's working well, and improving what's not working well.
If you know there is value in your data, but hate digging through it (the annoying part), we build a custom tool or dashboard for you that will handle the annoying part for you, and just show you the answer you want!
Easily seeing your data helps you know ALL of your numbers and make
data-driven strategic decisions.
Why do we do it?
After years in the corporate world, we realized that we weren't making enough impact on individual people and needed to change that.
Helping and working with people is what drives us, so we'll help you make great, financially sound decisions, but also have some fun working together!
We've put our big business skills to use for the people of small and medium-sized businesses - efficiently managing and analyzing their data to extract valuable insights and make data-driven decisions. We also run the financials to make sure the projects are maximizing top and bottom lines.
Alongside all of that analytical power, we build strong relationships with our clients as well. After all, Pineapple Consulting Firm was formed on the basis of working with people - not just numbers.
We aren't going to tell you how to run your business, we just want to help you run it better.
Winning a Cool Award
In 2021, Jack Tompkins won the pretty neat award of Young Entrepreneur of the Year!
It was through an organization called the Best of Small Business Awards which is also partnered with the Small Business Expo organization. They are a large national organization that has events and groups across the country and awards businesses in a variety of different categories.
Jack was honored to be the sole winner of Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the age of 27 after all the votes were counted.
Why are we "Pineapple" Consulting Firm?
Well, we don't consult pineapples, so this is a pretty fair question.
It's true that pineapples are a welcoming sign and a symbol of Southern hospitality. For example, when you get a new neighbor in the South, traditionally, you're supposed to give them a pineapple as a welcome to the neighborhood.
That factors in, but the real reason is because pineapples represent vacation to us. Sipping a pina colada out of a pineapple on a beach... ah. Our goal is to save small business owners enough time, or make them enough money so that they can actually take a vacation like that and not have to worry about work for a few days - just focus on the beach they're on and what drink they're ordering next.
Check out some of our partnerships and how they help others too!

About our founder
When I started Pineapple Consulting Firm, the main thing I wanted to do was help and work with people, but I couldn't just offer a nice conversation as a service.
So I put my two strong suits together - analytics, so that I could provide a highly important service to businesses that don't have resources for it, and combined that with my relationship management skills that are really the backbone of the service. Helping people and businesses with important work and even better service.
I've been a leader, an analyst, and managed relationships between Fortune 500 companies. Being able to combine all of those roles together into one business that much more directly impacts people is a dream come true. Pineapple Consulting Firm takes the best pieces of corporate America and puts that knowledge to work for business owners in our community.
