The Wakefield Sandwich Company World Chicken Salad Sandwich Eating Championship will be sanctioned using All Pro Eating’s “Picnic Style Rules” and has a prize pool of $1,100.00.

“Chicken salad sandwiches have a genuine place in everyone’s heart – it’s a food that crosses regional borders and is loved all over the world which is why it is only fitting that The Wakefield Sandwich Company World Chicken Salad Sandwich Eating Championship is indeed a World Championship!” commented Todd “The Hungry Genius” Greenwald, Chairman of All Pro Eating Promotions. “The Food Warriors who commit themselves to this Eating Championship will not only leave with a full stomach and a smile on their face but they enter with the knowledge that they are participating in an Eating Championship that could produce a new World Chicken Salad Sandwich Eating Record! If a new World Record will be set, it’s fitting that The Wakefield Sandwich Company’s fresh and delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches are being consumed.” The Hungry Genius stated that the current World Record is twenty-two 5 Ounce sandwiches in 8 minutes.
All Pro Eating Promotions is expecting several Professional Competitive Eaters at The Wakefield Sandwich Company World Chicken Salad Sandwich Eating Championship. #1 Ranked Professional and Collegiate Competitive Eater and one of the Nation’s top Food Challengers Eric “Silo” Dahl out of Delano, MN is both the fan favorite and also the odds-on favorite. Not only will he have his hands (and stomach) full of The Wakefield Sandwich Company’s Chicken Salad Sandwiches but he will also be up against some of his toughest competition to date. #4 Ranked Competitive Eater and media darling Will “The Champ” Millender from Brooklyn, NY will be in attendance to take his first shot at Silo and his current #1 Ranking and is focused on winning. Not to be outdone, #6 Ranked Competitive Eater Chris “The Mad Greek” Abatsas will travel from Cleveland, OH to prove to the world that he has what it takes to win the Championship and avenge a 2011 loss to Silo. All Pro Eating Promotions, Eby-Brown and The Wakefield Sandwich Company encourage amateurs and anyone interested in registering to participate in the event (registration is handled on-line at http://www.competitiveeaters.com/events) and an additional $100.00 will be awarded to the highest finishing amateur eater.
