Restaurant Association of Maryland

The Restaurant Association of Maryland has remained relevant to restaurateurs for over 80 years by maintaining core principles born out of the first national financial crisis.

In 1927 a small group of Baltimore area restaurateurs met to address the challenges facing the economy and the foodservice industry. Today, the Restaurant Association of Maryland is a 2,000 member strong statewide trade association operated for the purpose of promoting, protecting and improving the foodservice industry in the State of Maryland.

Since the very beginning, the Association has been run by restaurateurs and suppliers working not only for the benefit of dues paying members, but also for the restaurant industry as a whole. For more information about the restaurant industry in Maryland please visit our website at
