Why Join the Arizona Restaurant Association?

It’s Simple… as a restaurant owner, you can save money on the items you buy every day for your restaurant.

  • Industry Partners - The Arizona Restaurant Association has dozens of industry partners that offer discounts and savings you can’t get anywhere else. As a Member, you can save money on healthcare, insurance, linen supplies, payroll and many other services available only as a member of ARA.
  • Education & Training – ARA offers discounts for online and in person classroom and testing for Food Handler Cards, Food Protection Manager and Responsible Beverage Service Training (ServSafe). Your employees are required to have this training anyway, you might as well save money!
  • Industry News & Resources – As an ARA member, you get a free copy of Restaurant Operation Matters. This is a comprehensive regulatory guidebook designed to give you a blueprint for procedural compliance in the highly regulated restaurant business. You will also receive our weekly newsletter called On the Menu containing industry insights, local political activity that can affect your business, Money Matters Education Series and other news and resources.

Based on your needs, your ARA Membership can pay for itself in cost savings in the first 3 months!
