Dignity, Equity, Community

Restaurants committed to taking the High Road to profitability.

We are a national network of restaurant owners who are committed to racial and gender justice every day.  This includes how we compensate our employees, define our culture, staff our restaurants, and serve our guests.

High Road Restaurants advocate for fair wages and increased racial and gender equity through hiring, training, and promotional practices.  We believe that our teams are essential to our success.
