Welcome to MRLA
The mission of the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association is to lead the hospitality industry through advocacy, education, and innovation. Whether it’s navigating the complex waters of ever-changing regulations, providing cutting-edge training and certification products, or empowering members to help reduce their bottom line with practical, relevant business solutions, the MRLA is an indispensable, one-stop resource for the hospitality industry. Our diverse network of membership ranges from industry owners, operators, staff, and suppliers, to educators and students.
The Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association (MRLA) is the recognized leader of Michigan's hospitality industry, providing essential services to its members. The Michigan Restaurant Association was originally founded in 1921 to serve, enhance and nurture the growth and development of Michigan's food service industry. In 2018, the MRA expanded its reach to become the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association to advance the entire hospitality industry. The restaurant and lodging industries play an integral role in Michigan’s economy, employing nearly 600,000 Michiganders and generating $40 billion in revenue statewide.
