Tuesday is one of the cheesiest days of the year.
Sept. 18 is the made-up holiday of National Cheeseburger Day and restaurants are celebrating with discounts and free burgers.
According to a survey by Offers.com, 25 percent of consumers chose Five Guys as their favorite cheeseburger, 21 percent of consumers chose Wendy’s and 20 percent McDonald’s.
Womply, a small business software provider, has found it might be a good day to grab a burger but might not be that busy for local restaurants.
“Lines will be shorter and burger joints may be running special promotions to get more patrons to come and enjoy a patty melt,” said Brad Plothow, the company’s vice president of brand and communications.
And what is the best kind of cheese to top a burger?
The results often depend on the survey, but Livingston, New Jersey-based burger chain, Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, found has found based on sales that American, cheddar and Swiss are the favorite choices.
