We recently had the pleasure of working with the Texas Restaurant Association and got to learn about the amazing work they do for the restaurants we know and love throughout the state! We’re sharing a little bit about their mission and how to join as a member if you are a restaurant looking for support.

Updated May 2023



TRA is an advocate and resource for the hospitality and foodservice industry in Texas which is an $87 billion dollar industry that spans over 53,000 locations throughout the state and employs a workforce of about 1.3 million! Their goal is to improve the business climate for their members and offer guidance + resources in all aspects of the industry from legislation to training and business solutions!

Fun fact: they helped secure the ability for restaurants to sell alcohol to-go during the pandemic, which was a critical revenue stream to help keep the restaurants afloat during that time!
