In February, members of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association, and Oklahoma Travel Industry Association will join forces for “Hospitality Day at the Capitol”, where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry.

Then mingle with more than 600 members and legislators while we do what we do best - demonstrate Oklahoma hospitality - at a bigger and better-than-ever “A Tasteful Affair” Legislative Reception. “A Tasteful Affair” features more than 20 of Oklahoma’s finest restaurants showcasing their culinary tastings at what is heralded as the state’s most successful and best attended legislative reception.

ServSafe Food Safety Partnerships

 
ServSafe® Food Safety Partnerships

With more than 7 million managers certified nationwide, ServSafe® is the most recognized food safety program in the nation and has set the industry standard for food safety education. The Oklahoma Restaurant Association is Oklahoma’s primary organization to provide ServSafe® training, as designated by the Oklahoma State Department of Health. By offering one-day class formats in Oklahoma, we allow managers to review and test for national certification. The scores and certificates are issued directly to the manager by the National Restaurant Association.

The ORA has trained over 24,600 of Oklahoma’s foodservice managers from independent, multi-unit and branded lodging properties and restaurants, as well as a great number of schools, hospitals, casinos and assisted living. Management certification is only required in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Stillwater, but at least 45% of those we train come from cities/counties that do not require food handler certification, so our program’s reach is far beyond what is mandated.

The Oklahoma Restaurant Association averages 3 classes/month = 36 opportunities for face to face exposure with an average of 60 foodservice professionals per class.

2020 A Tasteful Affair Legislative Reception Partnerships
$0.00 USD

Plan to support the first event of the new year and help us mark the start of Oklahoma’s legislative session!

The hospitality industry is the driving force in Oklahoma’s economy, generating enormous tax revenues, providing jobs for hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans, and giving time and money back to their communities. At the same time, it’s vital that we maintain good relations with legislators so that our perspective on various bills and issues is given thoughtful consideration.

In February, members of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association, and Oklahoma Travel Industry Association will join forces for “Hospitality Day at the Capitol," where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry.

Then mingle with more than 600 members and legislators while we do what we do best - demonstrate Oklahoma hospitality - at a bigger and better-than-ever “A Tasteful Affair” Legislative Reception. “A Tasteful Affair” features more than 20 of Oklahoma’s finest restaurants showcasing their culinary tastings at what is heralded as the state’s most successful and best attended legislative reception.

Thirst for a Cause Donations
$0.00 USD

"Thirst for a Cause" is a benefit event established through the Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation to meet the extreme medical needs of persons employed in the restaurant industry in Oklahoma. Monetary support will not be granted directly to the individual, but to the entity supplying goods and services to the individual, i.e. hospitals, physicians, etc. Please consider making a donation to this worthy cause!

The Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation is a 501(c)3 charity, so your purchase is tax deductible and nearly 100% of the money raised at this event goes directly to the charity - not to cover costs.
