About the TRA
It is the mission of the Texas Restaurant Association to serve as the advocate in Texas and indispensable resource for the hospitality and foodservice industry.
Our History | Current Leaders & Staff | Membership
Since 1937, the Texas Restaurant Association has existed to help our restaurant members increase sales, reduce expenses and improve profitability. Membership in the TRA is an investment in your business and in this industry.
Every year the Texas Restaurant Association produces the Southwest Foodservice Expo, the largest foodservice show in the southwest! The TRA is also the home of the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation, which provides educational opportunities for restaurant careers in Texas. Another significant program the Texas Restaurant Association is invested in is our Government Relations & Advocacy program. Our Training & Certification programs will help you and your employees get on the right track.
When you join TRA you also become a member of the National Restaurant Association and your local chapter, there are 22 of them, multiplying the value of your investment. Learn more about the Benefits of Membership here.
