Good food is one thing.
Good business is something else.
Our mission is to be the bridge between good food and good business so that your restaurant or cafe can become great. We’re passionate about our vibrant industry, which is full of interesting, talented and entrepreneurial people…people just like you.
Whether you need advice on an employment dispute or help navigating the terms of your lease, our industry and legal experts have got your back.
Thousands of restaurants and cafes consider the Restaurant Association their secret weapon for success.
For me, the best part is feeling part of something bigger. It’s like being part of a family where you can get support.
Regionally, the quarterly catch ups with local restaurant owners is really helpful.
I get all my contracts through the Restaurant Association, so when I’m asking for advice, they already know exactly what the contract says. The support is great.
The association lobbies the government on our behalf and the yearly Hospitality Report is so valuable to understand how my business is tracking compared to the rest of the industry.
I also take advantage of the savings through Nova Energy, but this savings is over and above the other benefits, like the newsletter and the business wellness check. These things are invaluable.”
Navigating regulation and legislation for the hospitality industry is a minefield. We track the latest news and developments for our members.
From celebrating success to up-skiling and training, our events are designed to give your business a boost.
