Our Three-Pronged Approach

RAMW is an advocate for restaurants and the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area food service industry. We work to keep you informed about changes in legislation and business regulatory matters at the local, state and national level that will affect the way you run your business.

RAMW is also an advocate for restaurants to your customers. We create marketing opportunities to keep your restaurants in the public eye and encourage diners to keep dining out through programs such as Restaurant Week, The RAMMY Awards, and our media partners.

Industry insights, referrals, training and marketing support are just a click away. RAMW is your guide through the often-confusing process of opening and operating a restaurant. Our extensive Endorsed Provider list allows you to take advantage of exclusive pricing on products and services just for you.

Take advantage of discounts for members on Food Safety Manager training, Alcohol Manager training, and other training programs offered at RAMW or at your establishment.

Who you know is just as important as what you know. Through RAMW’s networking events, educational seminars and Association newsletters (On the Line and RAMWeekend) you’ll get to know the people and businesses that drive one of the most vibrant industries in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.
