Who We Are

As Maine’s only non-profit trade group representing the hospitality industry, our current number one focus is securing a capable, reliable workforce for our members. The solution is to develop, renew and expand our own hospitality workforce statewide. We are transforming tired, old assumptions about the sector by creating a viable, long-term career path for new generations to come. 

By educating and engaging the public, schools and policymakers we are opening up opportunities available to young people, retired people, and disadvantaged populations.     

One example is the newly launched HospitalityMaine Apprenticeship Program, which will allow us to ‘home grow’ our hospitality workforce for the future.   

When it comes to advocacy, we are your voice in Augusta protecting your interest both individually and for the industry as a whole. This is true at the local, state and national level. Through programs like ProStart and ServSafe, we are the leader in hospitality training and education. 

Our sustaining vision for Maine hospitality embraces the breadth and depth of the life-affirming richness of the Pine Tree Street. Join us.
