You may not be familiar with LIDA, aka the Long Island Dining Alliance, but you may be more familiar with Long Island restaurants that belong to this organization, such as Four Food Studio, or Jewel, or Pace’s Steakhouse. These establishments, along with several others on the island, are members of LIDA, an organization that uses the real life operating experiences of their members to create a resource that restaurants can trust for their everyday business needs, with a hands on approach. Members receive access to the LIDA Job Bank where they can post open positions ans review potential employee profiles, access to LIDA Preferred Vendors, buy and sell restaurant equipment, chat live with Industry Experts, and much more! With over 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry, the organization’s President,Donna Trapani, is aware of the challenges establishment owners face on a daily basis. That is why LIDA was created, to offer solutions. Long Island is a wonderful place, rich with history, and a dining industry that has a tremendous draw. With countless small businesses that thrive off of each other, the restaurants of Long Island are lucky to have a resource such as the Long Island Dining Alliance, that supports this idea and assists these businesses in being their most successful.
