Release Date: 04.11.2019 | Location: All Metro Atlanta | Organization: Latin American Chamber of Commerce - LACC Georgia

Latin American Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Restaurant Assoc. Announce Partnership

 

(ATLANTA) April 10, 2019 – On Friday, March 29th the Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Georgia (LACC) and the Georgia Restaurant Association (GRA) signed an official Partnership Agreement in the presence of LACC members, GRA staff, and distinguished guests at the Georgia State Capitol. This new partnership will allow the LACC to bring additional benefits and resources to its members by leveraging the expertise and network of the GRA, the premier hospitality industry organization in the state. 
 
 “For over 30 years Latinos have contributed tremendously to the growth and success of the foodservice industry in Georgia and the southeast. They are vital in all areas of the industry, from the kitchen to wait staff and from entry level employees to business owners,” said Alejandro Coss, President and CEO of the LACC. 
 
 “We’re proud of this official partnership between the LACC and the GRA because it formally acknowledges the value of Latinos in the restaurant industry in all their roles. We also thank GRA CEO, Karen Bremer, for her inclusive leadership and shared vision of success.”
 
In 2010, the LACC developed its signature Food Service Industry program to assist Latino-owned restaurants and grocers with information and advice to help them grow and improve their operations. The program consists of seminars and workshops with relevant topics of interest to restaurant and grocer operations specific to Georgia. The program has helped grow LACC membership in the foodservice industry, one of the main areas where Latinos and Latinas start businesses.
