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 Discounts

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. Understanding food allergies is equally important.

When your restaurant joins RAMW, your employees will receive discounts on all the required training and certification renewal courses needed to integrate staff into your workforce and maintain compliance with the law.

Industry Partnerships

All RAMW Restaurant Member locations are shared through (a regional event discovery portal) which lists our Restaurant Members alongside local performances and events. In addition to this, our partnership with Events DC, and other similar organizations, puts 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

RAMW Restaurant Membership makes your restaurant eligible to participate in Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week, a twice-a-year tradition that turns the spotlight on our region’s restaurants.


RAMW membership dues are based on the annual gross sales of the location.*
