""We are the Mississippi gulf coast"

The Mississippi Coast Restaurant & Beverage Association has been the voice of the local restaurant industry for more than 35 years, supporting the industry through government representation, education, and mentorship. The Coast Restaurant Association aims to provide assistance to local high school culinary programs and scholarships to culinary students attending Mississippi colleges and community outreach programs. We are a 501(C)(6) organization.  


The Coast Restaurant Association has one full-time staff member--the Executive Director, and a Board of Directors, composed of 16 industry representatives. With an office located in Gulfport, Mississippi, we are accessible and readily available to assist our members. 

Fundraising activities include our annual Golf Classic held in the spring and our signature event--Chefs of the Coast, held in September.
