Become a Member - Join CAFP

Join now & grow with us! Together we will be on the cutting-edge of the "hospitality" industry.

Our membership is composed of a diverse group of senior and middle management from all segments of the food service industry - operations, manufacturers, distributors, education, consulting and purchasing. Each membership is individual thereby allowing members to easily transfer from branch to branch, if necessary. Unlike many other associations, being a member of CAFP demands minimal time and offers optimal fun!

We provide a unique opportunity for food and hospitality services professionals from coast to coast to meet and develop business contacts and resources; gain insight and ideas from the expertise of our members; and develop solutions to common challenges faced within the food service industry.

Current membership consists of 530 members at the Professional Branch level and 520 at the Student Branch level.
