Restaurant Membership

Whether you are just starting your own dining operation or are leading a large restaurant group or catering company, RAMW’s Restaurant Membership has its benefits.

Benefits & Services

Training & Workshops

Food safety and responsible alcohol practices are fundamental to providing your diners and patrons good hospitality, and each of the jurisdictions we represent requires that there is a licensed food safety manager and alcohol manager on the premises during business hours. RAMW provides regularly scheduled ServSafe Food Manager and Alcohol Awareness classes and online recertification and sexual harassment courses that focus on mitigation and management of issues associated with the work and safety of employees and assist in strengthening every establishment’s stance against harassment in the workplace.

RAMW also offers workshops around regulatory updates and restaurant marketing tips.

Industry Partnerships

All RAMW Restaurant Member locations are shared through partner networks which lists our Restaurant Members alongside local performances and events. Additionally, our partnership with Events DC, local Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) and similar organizations put your restaurant or restaurant group into the forefront of citywide events that bring in large numbers of visitors and hungry diners to the Metropolitan Area.

Restaurant Week, Cocktail Week, CO-OP ADS & More

RAMW Restaurant Membership makes your restaurant eligible to participate in Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week, DC Cocktail Week, co-op advertising and other regional marketing opportunities that spotlights our restaurant community.
