Greater Austin Restaurant Association

Member News  Events  |  Board of Directors


Welcome! The Austin Restaurant Association is a chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association. We come together for meetings, events, networking and to address local issues, form consensus, and support candidates favorable to Austin’s hospitality industry. By working together, our members have the ability to formulate a united message and ensure that those issues most critical to their businesses are given the attention they need. Our chapter has the power to raise thousands of dollars annually to support political and educational efforts of the state association as well as impact the Austin community through local charitable involvement. We encourage you to join us and get involved.

For more information on the Austin chapter, please contact myself or Susan Petty, Texas Restaurant Association Chapter Development Manager at 512-457-4100 or by This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . I look forward to working together.
