Burger Addict 1st Birthday Competition Winner

Burger Addict 1st Birthday Competition

With a range of guesses from 71 right up to 1,215(not a typo, one thousand two hundred and fifteen!) we have a winner! 

I've eaten 114 burgers consumed in that period and @TheGaztronome guessed correctly. 

I've made a collage of most of them below.

Thanks again to everyone who's made the blog worthwhile.

Five Guys are coming to London

In 1986, two of Jerry Murrell's sons decided against going to college, so Jerry decided to start a family business with them in Arlington County, Virginia. His aim was simple: he wanted to be `the' place in town to go for a good burger.

Fast forward 26 years. There are now more than 1,000 Five Guys joints in the US and Canada, with another 1,000 in the works.

With all five of Jerry's sons working for Five Guys, who does Jerry credit for their success? You guessed it - their mum and his wife.

This summer, Five Guys are opening their first overseas restaurant right here in London. Upon confirmation of their first site in Covent Garden, I decided to fire a few questions at Molly B. Catalano, their director of communications and public relations.
