Photo highlights: Public Affairs Conference

Over 600 restaurant operators from all over the country met in Washington, D.C. last month for two days of education, networking and grassroots advocacy. Attendees made their voices heard in hundreds of Congressional offices and sought legislative changes that will help restaurants do business and create jobs.
