The Hispanic Restaurant Association was made to uplift people and bridge cultures. We all eat food regardless of background, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. Therefore, we should work together to create an amazing experience when we eat, and we should work to make each other better every day. The HRA not only seeks to assist Hispanic restauranteurs, but also to use this bridge to uplift the Hispanic community for generations to come. So, let's go break bread together.

What We Do
We are constantly striving to bring attention to the Hispanic culinary community. From competitions to festivals to dinners, we are continually highlighting the fantastic talent of Hispanic chefs. Check out our HRA22 page (linked below) to see everything we have planned for 2022.
As our vision states, we aim to bring more education to the Hispanic community. Through partnerships with local educational institutions and initiatives, we give our community a path to learn new skills and get an education that works for them, whether through a college or on their own. Check out our education page (linked below) for more details.
Of course, we also want to focus on more immediate goals. Accordingly, we have many services to offer to new and existing restaurants to help them elevate their business. Whether they're looking for consultants, vendors, or assistance with licensing, we have them covered and more. Check out our services page (linked below) for more details. We've developed new partnerships that bring value and access to training and financial help when needed. Check out the Minority Business Office Training Programs
