We believe that our industry is more than an economic engine and more than the sum of the community gathering places it represents across the United States. It’s an industry that touches every American’s life, where careers are born and memories are made.
Whether you’re a one-person operation or the largest restaurant chain in America, we believe that your spirit of hospitality sets our industry apart. We share your creative flair, your passion for serving others and your pledge to the communities where you live, work and play. Membership with the National Restaurant Association means that you have a strong partner invested in your success.
Running a restaurant is complex, and the bigger you are, the more complexity you face. There are always new issues, challenges and policies that can affect your business and our industry. Together, with our state restaurant associations, we’ve got over 750 staffers ready to back you up, so you can focus on running your business.
Since 1919, we’ve been the leading voice and advocate for restaurants and restaurateurs across the United States. We work across the industry to protect our members’ interests and empower them to achieve even more success than they thought possible.
You fight for your business. We do, too. Together, we’ll move our industry forward. Join now or learn more about all the ways in which you can become involved in the National Restaurant Association.
