What is MRA?

The Massachusetts Restaurant Association (MRA) is a statewide, non-profit trade organization representing the interests of the food and beverage industry. Founded in 1934, the MRA has grown to over 2,000 members statewide, representing an estimated 5,000 establishments ranging from major hotel and restaurant chains to small, family-owned operations.

The MRA maintains a strong presence on Beacon Hill. It sponsors legislation that benefits the industry and works through its grass-roots programs to defeat potentially damaging legislation. This effort results in huge bottom-line savings for our entire membership through Worker's Compensation insurance reform, Lower unemployment costs, and Liquor-law legislation.
