The third annual Lexington Burger Week has come to a close. Sad face. In 2015, over 36 restaurants participated and 21,000 burgers were sold. In 2016, over 36 restaurants participated in Lexington Burger Week and over 61,100 burgers were sold. Now, in 2017, there were over 46 one-of-a-kind burgers being offered at 40+ restaurants. The official count hasn’t come in yet, but if the growth from 2015 to 2016 was almost 300%, I can only imagine what growth it had from 2016 to 2017.
For those that don’t know, Lexington Burger Week happens around the second week in July, and they aren’t just any burgers. Each restaurant will create a $5 burger that is one-of-a kind and not on their regular menu.
