Welcome to the Lee Chapter

“We (Lee County Hotel Association) are very happy to have merged with FRLA and become the Lee County Chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. The merger is so exciting and such an important step in telling the story of Tourism in our county. Tourism and the guest experience has always focused on delectable food experiences as a motivator for traveling to destinations. Having a group that represents both Restaurants and Lodging is just a logical partnership of industries. It also gives all of our associate members of vendors a huge field in which to make business relationships. This new association will continue to provide all the guests staying with us and dining with us, that unparalleled and unique happy experience which Lee County is known to deliver. We look forward to helping grow our member businesses and continuing to be the champions of Hospitality.” – Jeff Webb
