Recognizing Outstanding Community Service
Among Our Nation's Restaurants
Apply today or nominate a restaurant and they could win $5,000
Fifteen years ago, the National Restaurant Association together with the award's founding partner, American Express, created the Restaurant Neighbor Award to help honor restaurants in the field of outstanding community service and involvement. Ninety percent of restaurants are actively involved in community activities and this award highlights the positive contributions restaurants make in their local neighborhoods each and every day.
Four national winners receive $5,000 each to support their community efforts as well as an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to receive their award during a gala awards dinner held in April 2013.
The NRA and American Express are pleased to honor restaurant companies that have gone above and beyond in giving back to their communities through the Restaurant Neighbor Award program. Each year, four national winners receive $5,000 each to continue their charitable works.
The National Restaurant Association (NRA) and founding partner American Express developed the Restaurant Neighbor Award to raise awareness about the restaurant industry's contributions in local communities across the country and to inspire other restaurant operators and owners to make even greater contributions in their communities. Each participating state restaurant association will select winners in their respective states that will compete with winners from other states for the national award.
The NRA works to lead America's restaurant industry into a new era of prosperity, prominence, and participation, enhancing the quality of life for all we serve.
