Restaurant Membership

You work hard.  You care about the restaurant industry.  You're not alone.

We’re the Restaurant Association of Maryland, a trade group of 2,000 member restaurants who share the same values you do: providing great food and service while increasing profitability and giving back to the community. 

Here’s a snapshot of what membership does for your business:
    • Reach new customers via culinary events & promotions
    • Increase your margins through cost-saving programs

    • Be informed, represented and ready to act on legislation that impacts you
  • Here’s what membership gets you:

    INFORMATION YOU CAN ACTUALLY USE
    Hear it here first. Make better decisions. Increase profits.
    Our members are informed of market changes and new laws that impact business, and they’re given tools to act in order to keep profits moving upward.

    LOBBYING
    Lawmakers propose regulations. RAM fights to keep them restaurant-friendly.
    Maryland laws and regulations threaten to raise the cost of doing business. But never fear—RAM is out there advocating for your interests.

    FREE LEGAL HOTLINE
    When you have legal questions, RAM offers a path forward.
    Lawyers are expensive and you may not need one. If we can’t answer your question, our endorsed law firm, Franklin & Prokopik, offers free member consultations.

    A YEAR OF GREAT EVENTS
    RAM members work hard. And they play hard too.
    No one else does events like RAM. You’ll get to attend networking meet-ups, educational seminars, the Taste of Maryland Legislative Reception, and our Stars of the Industry Awards Gala.
