If you are a restaurant vendor or supplier, you know how valuable it is to get your information in the hands of the owners and operators.  Our guide has a statewide distribution of 4,500 and is mailed directly to restaurants all across the state.  Contact us to be included in the next guide and to hear about other ways to reach New Mexico’s restaurants.

If you own or operate a restaurant in New Mexico, you have likely already received your 2019-2020 Buyer’s Guide.  This resource not only connects you with lots of quality vendors — it also gives great information and resources about the New Mexico Restaurant Association.  Let’s take a look.

Grab your guide, or view it page by page online by clicking on the cover image.  Can’t find it?  Here’s your first tip:  Keep your Buyer’s Guide in an accessible place so that you can refer to it whenever you need.

Let’s get to the meat of the guide:  Vendor Listings.  Jump to the center of the guide.  Here you will find vendors that can help your business succeed and grow– from accounting and legal help to purveyors, repair, and point of sale— and everything in between.  The best part?  These vendors are ALL members of our association.  They have “skin in the game” and are showing a commitment to our mission and your success!  This should be the first place you go to get what you need.  Don’t see a vendor you love?  Contact us so we can give them a call.  Also, check our online membership directory for new vendors that may have joined since the guide was published.

Utilize the table of contents to access the other areas of the guide:

  • CEO Remarks – This will give you a great baseline to what YOUR Restaurant Association is doing for you– especially in the realm of political advocacy.  Did you know that initially the legislature was proposing an instant minimum wage increase to $15 per hour with NO tip credit?  Our grassroots efforts were instrumental in educating these lawmakers and advocating for both operators and servers, saving members over $100,000 annually.  Membership dues help us keep fighting.  Not a member?  Join us here.

  • Members-Only Savings – These are our endorsed programs.  All of the listed providers have also been vetted by our Board of Directors.  Contact us to connect with them to get the maximum return on investment on your membership.
