New Mexico Restaurants Generating Jobs and Taxes for New Mexico

Eating & Drinking Places

Foodservice Jobs

Gross Receipt Tax

We opened our first restaurant 26 years ago. Back then we were flying by the seat of our pants. There was so much that we didn’t know.

A few years in we finally joined the New Mexico Restaurant Association. We have gained so much knowledge by being members. NMRA saved us a lot of money and energy when it came to discounts on services such as worker’s comp, music licensing, credit card processing, etc.

NMRA gives the new restaurateur the power of a bigger company. The biggest benefit is that the NMRA sticks up for our industry on the government level. Their powerful voice speaks up for us and has saved our restaurants from potential costly legislation that could be devastating to the operator.

We now have nine restaurants in New Mexico. Our growth has been influenced by our membership.”
