It broke her heart when she closed Dailey's and City Grill in Downtown Atlanta. But Karen Bremer continued on in what she loves, the food industry. Now she is the Executive Director of the GRA (Georgia Restaurant Association). She has been involved from the beginning too. She is a founding member of the GRA, Past President of the GRA Board and has served on the board of directors for the National Restaurant Association, Atlanta Convention & Visitor's Bureau, and Team Georgia. Currently, Bremer serves on the Industry Board of Georgia State University's Cecil B. Day School of Hospitality, Board of Directors of DeKalb CVB and the Arby’s Foundation. She has garnered numerous awards including the ACVB Member of the Year Award in 2002 for her role in founding Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week. It's no surprise that in 2009 she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for her outstanding contributions to Georgia's Restaurant Industry.
