This program offers members special pricing for all Visa/MasterCard transactions, Amex, Discover, Debit, EBT and Gift Cards.  A WorldPay representative will help you coordinate actvities with your POS vendor.

We encourage you to call the Association office to learn more about the program.  We'll be happy to have a WorldPay representative call you.

Risk Management

The IFRA Service Corporation has endorsed insurance/risk management programs and employee health benefit programs tailored to meet participating member needs at the lowest possible rates. Through our collective approach, each member will be able to effect substantial cost savings in their worker's compensation, property casualty, and health benefit insurance costs.

Educational Programs

Food Safety is more critical than ever and the consequences of improper sanitation practices are severe. IFRA is committed to assist members any way possible to comply with state and local sanitation requirements.

The Illinois Food Retailers Association is offering both the initial 15-Hour Food Service Sanitation Certificate Course and the 5-Hour Sanitation Certificate Refresher Course in the many areas throughout the state. The Corporate Training Center, Ltd. who specializes in food service sanitation training, will conduct these classes.
