OKRA, An Organized Kollaboration on Restaurant Affairs, is the result of an idea born in 2009 to establish a loose-affiliation among like-minded restaurant and bar owners to pursue charitable community initiatives in the City of Houston, Texas. Over time, the need for a public voice for independents in our industry became more apparent, and others became involved in collaborative efforts to sustain the goals of this disorganized collection of friends. OKRA was formally established in 2011 by these founding members.
OKRA IS a charitable organization with very specific views on how our industry should operate and engage local communities. We ARE NOT a general membership association for restaurants, bars, and other branches of the hospitality industry. Instead, we function as an independent, community-supported advocacy group. There IS a very real possibility that you will disagree with our views and efforts. We’re okay with that…
