Restaurant operators spend a day in and day out working hard to run a profitable business. FoodVoice is a dynamic smartphone app that gives all hardworking and innovative restaurant industry players a seat at the table where policy decisions affecting restaurants are made – even on the go. The data gathered from California operators will allow the California Restaurant Association to suitably represent the voice of the industry in its advocacy efforts.

FoodVoice asks restaurateurs to sound off the challenges that crop up each day because it’s crucial for policymakers to hear that perspective as they write legislation affecting any number of pivotal topics that affect restaurants, including those involving food safety, minimum wage, labor issues, health care, and environmental regulations.

FoodVoice will send periodic notifications when new surveys are available so users can share their opinions, which will ultimately shape the conversations happening in city halls, the State Capitol and on Capitol Hill.

Download FoodVoice now, create a new user profile, answer a few demographic questions and begin participating to quickly and easily make a real difference.
