Hello Southwest Suburbs, come meet your neighbors!!!

The Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA) is putting together our FIRST Southwest Suburban Networking Event for owner/operators on Wednesday May 15th at Chuck’s Southern Comfort Café and Caterings from 2-4PM.  

As IRA membership continues to grow in the South, West, and Southwest Suburbs, we want you to be a part of this exciting time for our industry.  Join us for complimentary bites, drinks and networking with your peers.  This is a chance to discuss the challenges of being a restaurateur, share ideas with your peers and leverage IRA resources to make running your business easier.

Terrell Johnson, Executive Director of the IRA Educational Foundation, will highlight the growth his department has seen working with local high schools in the Southwest suburbs in their culinary programs, and how local restaurants can play a mentoring role to these students while gaining a great worker.

For those not already members of the association, Eric Fine, Director of Sales & Marketing and the Membership team will be available to talk about additional benefits of being a part of this incredible organization and how we are the premier organization to support you!

Please note:  

This event is open to all hospitality owners, operators, executive chefs, managers, bartenders, HR, and PR - only.  Any influential team member is welcome, in addition to, or in substitution of, your attendance.   

If you do not qualify, please join us Saturday—Tuesday, May 18th – 21st, for The NRA/BAR Show at McCormick Place in Chicago
