HAVE YOU HEARD? CO2 RULES GO INTO EFFECT JANUARY 1 IN DENVER

The new requirements on CO2 systems go into effect January 1st in Denver. This applies to systems with more than 100 pounds of CO2, or any system using any amount of Carbon Dioxide below grade.  Are you compliant?


ADVOCACY THROUGH FOOD: CALL FOR RESTAURANTS FOR BLUE RIBBON LEGISLATIVE RECEPTION

Restaurants are a powerful economic force, yet legislators and special interest groups introduce dozens of bills and regulations each year that could hurt the ability of restaurants to stay open. Join us at our annual CRA Blue Ribbon Legislative Reception to kick off the legislative session and show our state legislators the full force of our industry!

We are actively recruiting restaurants to participate in this year’s event.  Participating restaurants must be able to provide 250 tastes, your own serving and cooking equipment and staff. If you are interested in participating, please complete this form.  Any questions, contact Nicolle Montgomery at (303) 830-2972 or nmontgomery@corestaurant.org

Blue Ribbon Reception | Wednesday, January 10 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm | History Colorado Museum 1200 Broadway Denver, CO 80203


JOIN THE GIVING MOVEMENT

Don’t forget, Colorado Gives Day is next Tuesday. There isn't an industry out there that cares for people like we do. We are launching the Angel Relief Fund to support restaurant employees in need. It is an honor to care for the people who make every meal possible! Schedule your donation today!


IS YOUR WEBSITE ADA COMPLIANT?

The National Restaurant Association partnered with Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind to host a webinar on how restaurants can make their websites more accessible to people with disabilities to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Right now, there is an alarming new wave of litigation where restaurants are being sued for website accessibility, despite the lack of any clear rules in this area.
