2022 TRA Restaurant Gift Guide

The Texas Restaurant Association Encourages Texans to Purchase Holiday Gifts from Local Restaurants to Support the Industry.   

AUSTIN, TX (December 12, 2022) – 
This holiday season, the Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) encourages Texans to support local restaurants in a few different ways: through dining out during the holidays, buying gift cards from local restaurants, and purchasing merchandise from their online store.

While the holiday season is normally a critical time for the hospitality industry, it is particularly important this year as local restaurants continue to rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain disruptions, and inflation.  

While the restaurant and hospitality industry continues to recover from these hardships, we recommend consumers use our gift guide when spending time with friends and family this holiday season.
