“Each year with Gwinnett Burger Week, we look forward to tasting the incredible new recipes our chefs come up with, while finding unique ways to level-up the event, supporting our locally owned eateries and creating new experiences for the community,” said Lisa Anders, executive director of Explore Gwinnett. “This year’s highly anticipated Gwinnett Burger Week – featuring our new mobile pass – is an excellent opportunity for locals and visitors to earn prizes and experience delectable chef-crafted burgers from some of the best restaurants in the area, at an affordable price.”

This year, 21 restaurants are participating in Gwinnett Burger Week, each featuring an exclusive off-menu burger. A sampling of this year’s offerings include:

Powered by technology company Bandwango, the new Gwinnett Burger Week Digital Pass is free, requires a quick sign-up, no app to download, and will auto-check diners in when they arrive at a participating restaurant. Participants who track their dining experience at 10 or more restaurants throughout the week will be inducted in the Gwinnett Burger Week Wall of Fame, with their photos displayed on Explore Gwinnett’s website.

Diners can sign up for the Gwinnett Burger Week Pass at Pass.ExploreGwinnett.org. by providing their name, e-mail address and mobile phone number.
