Highway 55 Burgers, Shakes and Fries in Kenly is the Kenly Area Chamber of Commerce’s business of the month for June.

At its recent monthly meeting, the Chamber voted to reinstate name a business of the month.

Highway 55 Burgers, Shakes and Fries is located at 306 S. Church St., (US 301) in Kenly.   

The business describes itself as  “1950s Family Style dining, featuring American classics you know and love, from cheeseburgers and crispy onion rings to old-time rock n’ roll.”

Kenly Area Chamber of Commerce directors have been implementing ideas to foster new and better ways to showcase and promote member businesses, said Chamber President Kathy Forbes. “We wanted to honor the businesses that comprise the organization and give them an avenue to celebrate, through advertising their devotion to Kenly and the surrounding community.”

According to Forbes, KACC Business of the Month is a fantastic way to recognize a member business each month, to celebrate its accomplishments and to show gratitude for its involvement.
