The National Restaurant Association, the Tennessee Hospitality and Tourism Association and the Nashville Originals are collaborating on a civic engagement program committed to growing and preserving opportunity in the restaurant industry and strengthening the community in which we live and work.

The Nashville Kitchen Cabinet is focused on establishing a working group of informed, active and motivated hospitality community members to serve as industry ambassadors with policymakers, opinion leaders, community leaders and partner organizations, and it is designed to build bridges and foster long-term relationships with local elected officials and the community. Together, we will work closely with non-profit organizations and government officials to ensure that restaurants remain a strong pillar in our economy and continue to create opportunities for all Americans.
