About LRA


The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) was established in 1946 to advocate on behalf of the state’s foodservice and hospitality industry among elected officials and regulatory agencies. Under the leadership of its original officers and directors, the association set forth several founding principles that continue to guide the association to this day.  Since its inception, the LRA has been recognized as a peer leader among other state restaurant associations in the country. 

The LRA is governed by a Board of Directors that represents all segments of the foodservice and hospitality industry in Louisiana. The LRA, 
LRA Self Insurer’s Fund for Workers’ Compensation and its LRA Education Foundation have a staff of professionals led by the President and CEO. 

The LRA’s nine statewide chapters are composed of thousands of restaurant operations and related businesses, including hotels, caterers and suppliers of goods and services to the industry.
