“CORA has a long history in Central Ohio and has contributed to our community as advocates for the industry, their members, and to the community through many successful charitable programs and events,” said ORA Chairman Roy Getz.
As with every organization, over time the structure and purpose of the organization evolves.
“We believe that this merger is in the best interest of our members and our community,” said CORA President Scott Heimlich. “By combining our resources with the ORA for our PAC, Foundation and membership benefits, we can have a much stronger impact on our community and a united front across the state for our industry.”
CORA’s presence and impact on the central Ohio foodservice industry does not end with this merger.
“Members still have a lot to give to hungry central Ohioans and others in need in our community. And it is increasingly important that we build on the relationships we've established with local political leaders,” Heimlich said.
