We started Lakeland Restaurant Week in 2015 as a labor of love. Having lived all over the world, and experiencing NYC Restaurant Week and many food festivals first hand, we wanted to bring the same thing to Lakeland to support the burgeoning culinary scene.
It's a great way to celebrate our local restaurants, allowing them to showcase their specialities and encourage people to try new places.
Charging customers a fixed price for a 3 course menu allows chefs to showcase their abilities, whilst allowing Lakelanders to enjoy culinary delights, without emptying their wallets.
We've had a huge response since we began our journey, and never charge the restaurants a penny to participate.Up until now, as founders we've covered all associated costs personally, but as we grow, and in an effort to make LRW as big as it can be, we've decided to make available sponsorship options to local companies.
Not only will it allow you to support our local restaurant scene, but it's a great opportunity to align yourself with a week long celebration with hundreds of diners and thousands of post responses.
LRW 2021 will be our biggest event yet, and we welcome you to come on board with us, and share in the fun and the food!
