In an effort to better serve its clients, Waste Cost Solutions has joined the Restaurant Facility Management Association (RFMA) and the National Association for Convenience Stores (NACS), two established trade associations that have a strong history of advocacy for their memberships in those respective industries.

RFMA is a trade association created by and for restaurant facility management professionals. Its membership includes restaurant groups of all sizes, as well as national and regional service providers. RFMA’s mission is to advance awareness of restaurant facility management, while promoting professional and ethical standards within the industry.

NACS is an international trade association representing more than 2,200 retail and 1,600 supplier company members. NACS serves the convenience and fuel retailing industry by facilitating connections and providing information and advocacy to ensure the competitive viability of its members’ businesses. The association offers a variety of products to help retailers grow their businesses, from research and marketing to human resources support to category management.

“We believe strongly in supporting organizations that serve our clients,” said Waste Cost Solutions CEO Michael Mintz. “Both RFMA and NACS have a mission of providing education and promoting industry awareness that are in sync with our core values at WCS.”
