With the foodservice industry in Illinois being the largest private sector employer in the State, it’s comforting to know the Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA) is dedicated to promoting, protecting, educating and improving the restaurant industry and supporting its future. The IRA works to provide restaurant operators and suppliers in Illinois with valuable business services, networking opportunities, cost saving programs, and vital advocacy.
The IRA is the largest, most active resource for restaurateurs in Illinois. The IRA is advocating on behalf of restaurants on important issues such as the increase to the minimum wage and lowering the age from 21 to 18-years-old for restaurant staff to serve alcoholic beverages to customers.
IGS is a proud platinum sponsor of the IRA and looks forward to working and advocating alongside them on behalf of hard-working restaurateurs.
