The National Restaurant Association's America Works Here campaign helps tell the story of America’s restaurant industry -- the nation's second-largest private-sector employer and an engine of economic growth.
Whether it’s about the opportunity to learn job skills or own a restaurant, or the positive impact restaurants make in communities across the country through their philanthropic activities, restaurants have a story to tell.
Restaurants are an industry that provides millions of Americans with the opportunity to pursue their unique version of the American Dream. The campaign highlights some of the industry’s many poignant stories. We also focus on the facts and figures about America’s restaurants.
Everyone can agree that America’s restaurants play an important role in people’s lives, whether as a place to celebrate a special occasion, a spot to grab an early morning cup of coffee, or a place to meet with colleagues over a business lunch or dinner. The "America Works Here" slogan highlights not just the fact that nearly half of all Americans have worked in the industry, but that the nation's nearly 1 million restaurants are the place where business deals are made, where people can rise from the dishroom to the board room, and where organizations go for the philanthropic support that helps them do great work in local communities across the country.
