While serving restaurants, hospitality, and other food service businesses is at the core of what we do, NMRA also is home to vendors and associates that keep restaurants running!

Associate membership in NMRA is a great way for vendors to connect with restaurant owners and operators.  Membership also shows that you have “skin in the game” and support the industry that buys your products! Associate dues and sponsorship allow NMRA to work diligently to advocate for the industry and to promote and protect restaurants.  Our work helps keep the industry successful.  This allows operators to thrive and continue to use your services and buy your products.
