Anna Tauzin is the VP of Marketing and Innovation for the Texas Restaurant Association and her job involves trying out new restaurants and promoting them. If this is indeed Anna’s job, it sounds like one of the better jobs I’ve ever come across. Trying new dishes in new places most people have never heard of seems like a great way to spend my time. Restaurants have a special role in society, as they bring neighborhoods together and allow for a social outlet for friends and family to rejoice in.
The role of the National Restaurant Association is to empower and help restaurant owners advance their business. It provides a community of people who are all in the food industry and allows for them to help each other through the hardships the industry brings. From their website, the Associations mission statement is “We serve our members by advancing and protecting America’s restaurant and food service industry.”
