Advocating for Maryland's Restaurant Community
The Maryland Restaurant Coalition commissioned Gonzales Polls to survey Anne Arundel County, Maryland residents as part of our data collection.
Among Anne Arundel County residents, 82% agree with Governor Larry Hogan and his health experts, who have determined that it is safe for Maryland restaurants to be open at a limited capacity, following strict safety guidelines, while only 14% disagree with Hogan’s decision to keep restaurants open.

The Maryland Restaurant Coalition is a non-profit trade organization dedicated to protecting the rights of restaurants, restaurant owners and restaurant employees throughout the state of Maryland.
Our membership is made up of restaurant owners, employees, vendors, and citizens who support our industry. We provide information and education to the general public, fight against detrimental local and state legislation, lobby for legislation that supports our members, and protect from government restrictions that have disastrous long-lasting effects on our industry.
We are a diverse group of passionate industry workers and supporters who believe restaurants are the backbone of our communities and can change the future of the industry for the better.
Please consider making a donation to support our cause! All funds raised go directly to support legal, accounting, administrative and lobbying efforts.

What People Say
I’m not a risky person and I didn’t see the opportunities to start my own business. But Startup helped and guided me all the time and I couldn’t even imagine the project will be successful!
Together with Startup our band managed to record several singles at professional studio. Now we have high-quality material that we continue to promote. If we haven’t take a risk we would have played in our garage for years and years.
Thanks to Startup I finally quit my boring work and risked to start my own handmade business. I always had doubts that my hobbie can be a successful business. But I couldn’t do anything without people support!
