The next Burlington County Restaurant Week is less than eight weeks away and the Burlington County Commissioners are encouraging restaurants to participate in what is expected to be the County’s biggest business promotion to date.
The summer celebration of Burlington County’s restaurants, taverns and eateries is scheduled for August 20-26 and will once again showcase some of the region’s best food, drinks, deserts and appetizers.
Burlington breweries, distilleries and food trucks are also eligible to participate.
The weeklong event is sponsored by the Burlington County Commissioners, State Senator Troy Singleton and the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce. Throughout the week, they will highlight participating establishments by making visits and posting spotlights about them on social media.
Many participating restaurants and eateries also choose to create special menus, dishes or discounts to offer customers during the week.
“Burlington County has incredible places to eat and Restaurant Week is our way of celebrating and promoting them,” said Burlington County Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson. “We want the upcoming Summer Restaurant Week to be our biggest yet, so we’re reminding restaurants to sign up now so we can begin promoting their participation.”
“Restaurants are important places where friends and family gather to enjoy great food and company so it’s vital for us to support them in any way we can,” added Senator Singleton. “Restaurant Week is an opportunity for us to showcase all the wonderful spots we have in Burlington County and provide them a much-deserved boost in business.”
Restaurants can sign up for the Summer Restaurant Week by completing a short online form available at https://www.co.burlington.nj.us/1844/Summer-Restaurant-Week-2023 . There’s no charge to participate and restaurants are not required to create specials or discounts.
Burlington County Restaurant Week was created in 2019 as an economic development initiative to showcase restaurants and their importance to local communities. It quickly grew to become one of the County’s biggest and most popular business promotions, which prompted the Commissioners to expand the event and hold it twice a year.
“The first Winter Restaurant Week was held in March this year and was a giant success with more than 60 restaurants participating,” said Commissioner Deputy Director Tom Pullion. “We expect the upcoming Summer Restaurant Week to be even bigger. Residents should mark their calendars and prepare to try some fantastic food.”
