ROC- Restaurant Opportunities Center United

So, here's a question. Does anyone know who ROC is? Are there any FohBoh members that are also members of ROC? I would like to open up a discussion on their value proposition (if any) to employes, employers and the consumer. 

Are they a union? Are they good for the industry or just disruptive? 

See their website here.

  • Jaimie... Welcome to FOHBOH.

    It will be good to have input from ROC to the FOHBOH network.

    We all have a stake in the success of our industry... from CEO to DMO and all of us between.

    Can you offer the FOHBOH group three of ROC's specific national goals?

    What kind of support does ROC seek from our industry
