Restaurant Ready™ is a national program dedicated to engaging and empowering disengaged opportunity youth, reentry adults, and underserved populations who require work readiness skills to pursue a path to employment and life-long success.

The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) currently operates 18 Restaurant Ready™ programs across the country. The NRAEF’s program provides training in six work-ready competency areas defined by the restaurant industry — competencies which are critical for them to gain work-readiness skills and be successful throughout their careers, no matter what path they choose.
