2013 Maine Restaurant Week Dates Announced, Restaurants Invited to Register for Participation

Customer Contest During November Will Have Diners “Checking In”
SOUTH PORTLAND – The 5th annual Maine Restaurant Week (MRW) is scheduled for March 1-10, 2013. Maine restaurants are encouraged to register by November 1, by visiting www.mainerestaurantweek.com or calling (207) 775-2126.
A new MRW led customer contest will run the month of November. Diners will eat, drink and “check in” at restaurants registered for MRW 2013 to win restaurant gift certificates and hotel overnights. Official contest details will be announced soon through MRW’s website, Facebook and Twitter.

MRW broke records in 2012, including setting a new record for restaurant participation from more Maine cities and towns and significantly increased website traffic. Page views increased 88% to 472,630; pages per visit increased 89%; and average visit duration increased 27%. The event was held March 1-10, 2012, with participating restaurants offering multi-course meals for $20, $30 or $40. An estimated $1.5 to $2MM was pumped into Maine’s economy because of increased customer dining and related spending during MRW 2012.

MRW 2013 kicks off Friday, March 1, 2013, with The Incredible Breakfast Cook-Off. The ten-day promotion concludes March 10, with The Signature Event, a dessert and cocktail competition. Tickets to both events are available on brownpapertickets.com.

MRW 2013 will raise funds and awareness for United Way of Greater Portland’s programs and partner agencies.

Maine restaurants can register for MRW 2013 and find more details by visiting www.mainerestaurantweek.com or by calling (207) 775-2126.
