As your local business Association, we are excited to be gearing up for our Restaurant Operator’s Conference (ROC) on April 22nd at the Pines Manor in Edison. This year’s ROC is being transformed into one of the Association’s signature events, and with the enthusiasm and vision of 2013 Chairman George Vlahos, it is sure to be the best yet. This years’ conference will include:

  • A Vendor Show open to all restaurants (members and non-members) at no cost to attend. Please bring your employees, both front and back of the house, to experience a day full of excitement and see what we have to offer.
  • New field inspection process presentation by the Department of Health
  • Valuable educational sessions by the ABC and Department of Labor
  • Special guest culinary demonstrations by Chef David Burke & Chef James Laird
  • Cake decorating by Mauro Castano of TLC’s The Cake Boss & Carlo’s Bakery
  • 2013 Mixologist of the Year Competition, sponsored by RumChata

As the weather becomes nicer and we all start to prepare for spring and summer, I want to remind you of how important it is to have your staff adequately trained in appropriate techniques. One of the perks of your membership is the ability to send an unlimited amount of employees to ServSafe Food & Alcohol classes for FREE. As you may know, the new mandate for all Risk 3 establishments takes effect in early 2015 and will require one person per SHIFT to be certified in an accredited program.

I can’t encourage you enough to take advantage of this great member benefit we are able to offer you through a grant from the NJ Department of Labor. Please have your FEIN number ready and call Allyson at 800-848-6368 if you are interested in hosting a class, registering your employees, or finding out more about membership. A list of current classes can be found at njra.org under Calendar and Seminars.
