KEY ISSUES
___________________________
The GRA and NRA are focused on areas that determine your business' short and long term success. 
  • Profitability and Entrepreneurship: Restaurants operate on tight margins – approximately 3% before taxes on average, which is much lower than many other industries.
  • Jobs and Careers: The restaurant industry faces a long-term, structural employment problem.
  • Food and Healthy Living: The Association needs to be involved from “farm to fork” to help drive industry and regulatory change to meet the growing demands of safety and nutrition.
  • Sustainability and Social Responsibility: The restaurant industry needs to meet the opportunities of sustainability and philanthropy head-on.
