CRA Overview

We are CRA.  We know restaurants.

California Restaurant Association

For more than 100 years, the California Restaurant Association (CRA) has been the largest nonprofit state restaurant association in the nation. The CRA is committed to serving the needs of its member restaurants that raise billions of dollars in tax revenue for the state. Restaurant sales will exceed $67 billion in 2015, making foodservice one of the most powerful industries in the state.
