Welcome to Restaurants Act

The Grassroots Home for the Restaurant Industry

Join Us

Welcome to Restaurants Act, the restaurant industry’s grassroots and resource center– a one-stop hub for restaurants, employees, customers, and industry partners. During the COVID-19 crisis and beyond, we hope this site will become a go-to resource for the entire industry, providing a comprehensive look at information and resources at the federal, state, and local levels.

The restaurant industry is the cornerstone of communities across the country. We are the nation’s second largest private employer, creating first time jobs and careers in big cities and small towns. Restaurants provide a place for people to gather and celebrate special moments with loved ones. We need everyone at the table to help the industry and employees survive the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sign up for our email list to receive updates on legislation and regulations that impact the restaurant industry, or you can visit our Action Center to see current campaigns.

Thank you for joining with restaurants and their employees – we couldn’t do it without you!

We want to hear from you!

The restaurant industry, more than any other industry in the nation, has suffered the most significant sales and job losses since the COVID-19 outbreak began.

We must make sure our story is told and that restaurant operators, employees, and customers are at the table to demand action.

Get Involved!

Make a difference on policy that affects your business. Join us April 19-21, 2021, on Capitol Hill for our Public Affairs Conference and be part of the industry’s largest grassroots lobbying event.
