What is Texas Marketplace in Houston?
Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes the 2019 TRA Marketplace, organized by the Texas Restaurant Association, celebrating its 82nd year and pulling out all the stops — Texas style!
Texas is one of the hottest growth markets for the restaurant industry with sales projected to be $54.1 billion in 2019. With more than 45,418 eating and drinking establishments in the state, there are 1.32 million restaurant and foodservice jobs in Texas, accounting for 10% of the state’s employment.
TRA Marketplace is where this diverse and dynamic industry comes together — where restaurateurs meet, learn and collaborate to grow their businesses and become more profitable.
