IRA Second Vice Chairman Sam Sanchez (Old Crow Smokehouse, Moe's Cantina, John Barleycorn) recently spoke with El Restaurante magazine about how Latin and Mexican restaurants benefit from state restaurant association membership. Sanchez pointed out how the IRA worked to pass legislation in the City of Chicago that allows 18-20 year olds to sell and serve alcohol in restaurants. 

“Allowing 18-, 19-, and 20-year-olds to sell and serve alcohol with the proper training is the kind of smart, pragmatic legislation that a state restaurant association fights for in order to help the industry thrive,” said Sanchez, “This ordinance helps with youth unemployment in Chicago, while also expanding the labor pool for restaurants.”

The Texas Restaurant Association and California Restaurant Association also share their unique perspectives.
