The mission of the Korean American Restaurant Association, SE USA (KARA) is to support Korean American Restaurant members through Education and Promotion.
In June 2018, the Southeastern United States Korean American Restaurant Association and the Southeastern United States Korean Food Globalization Association merged under the name of KARA. Since the merger, KARA has already attracted over 1,000 members from the states of Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina, and its numbers continue to grow.
KARA mainly serves to provide two types of services to both Korean and Non-Korean food services as a part of the Southeastern chapter of the Korean government’s “Korean Food Promotion Institute (KFPI)” in the United States. The first of these services is to provide a unified, powerful voice for Korean American owned food and beverage (F&B) operations –an industry spanning over 1,000 businesses, worth in excess of 1 billion dollars, and providing more than 10,000 jobs. KARA also serves to present several programs designed to properly train and educate local restaurant owners in running their businesses. As such, KARA would like your support in 2018 to ensure the continued success of our non-profit 501-C3 (509-A2) organization which has supported the rapid growth of the local economy for the last decade. This non-profit label means donors are able to deduct any contributions they make to us under IRC Section 170. We hope to continue to work towards our mission into the foreseeable future and beyond.
