TRA saved Mexican Restaurants Inc. (MRI) over a quarter of a million dollars in liqour taxes in 2014 due to the mixed beverage tax restructuring legislation that was passed. Our restaurants don't have a high volume of liquor sales compared to some other concepts, but we saw significant tax savings. Another great TRA resource is the annual tradeshow, TRA Marketplace. In 2014 I found a mixer that would hold up to high heat when using it to mash/blend beans. The Dynamic Mixer can withstand temperatures up to 550 degrees. Previous brands we used could only handle up to 200 degrees, which meant we had to replace them once a year.
So does TRA and TRA Marketplace MIR money? You bet!
