Kyle Gibson, 22, ate an entire 'five guys menu' in 61 minutes while raising money for a local food bank. He is from Sunderland and has the honor of holding the top spot in the British Eating League. Since Kyle is already such a good eater, he decided to put his skills to good use to raise money for a local food bank.

Kyle said: "The challenge was to eat the entire menu at Five Guys and I did it. It took me just under 61 minutes and it was not easy. It was a bit of a struggle but I managed to get through it."

Kyle managed to eat eight burgers, four hot dogs, two portions of fries, two veggie sandwiches, a grilled cheese sandwich, a BLT, two milkshakes, and a couple of refill drinks.

Yes, this all was eaten by Kyle in only an hour which is incredible.

So Five Guys has made its way across the pond...

Can any of the British posters here tell us how these things work?  Do American imports always gain a toe hold in London first and then spread out to the rest of the country?  Would Manchester be the logical next step in their growth?  Birmingham?  If this guy's all the way up in Sunderland, I would expect that, for example, Five Guys is now fairly well established across the whole of the nation.  True?
