The National Restaurant Association is the definitive membership-based business association for the restaurant industry. With more than 37,000 members representing more than 175,000 restaurants, National Restaurant Association membership includes tableservice restaurants, quickservice outlets and cafeterias, as well as professionals and academic institutions associated with the industry.
The National Restaurant Association was created
in 1923 by industry leaders who recognized that there are some
things restaurateurs can do better when working together than they can do
working alone. To this day, that credo serves as a basic principle for the Association as it continues to serve its members by representing, educating and promoting the restaurant industry.
