The Restaurant Law Center is the only independent public policy organization created specifically to represent the interests of the food service industry in the courts. This labor-intensive industry is comprised of over one million restaurants and other food-service outlets employing about 16 million people—approximately 10 percent of the U.S. workforce. Restaurants and other food-service providers are the second largest private sector employers in the United States. In addition, the Law Center represents the interests of its state restaurant association affiliates, many of which have both food service establishments and hotels as members as well as other hospitality interests. Through amicus participation and first party litigation, the Law Center serves as the industry’s voice in the judicial system.
Through its initiatives, the Restaurant Law Center works to protect and advance the restaurant industry and promote pro-business laws and regulations that allow restaurants to continue to grow, create jobs and contribute to a robust American economy. The Law Center offers courts and regulatory agencies with the industry’s perspective on significant legal and regulatory issues to ensure that the views of America’s restaurants are taken into consideration.
