What is the national restaurant association?

The National Restaurant Association is an organization that represents the interests of both, the restaurant industry and its patrons. This type of an organization is typically overseen by a board of directors and run by staff members. Its main goal is to create standards for restaurants, including food safety, sanitation, health codes, and performance-based criteria. It also releases research on food trends and what consumers are looking for in terms of their dining experience. With these standards in place, it is able to maintain a healthy, functioning industry with profitability across the board.
