National burger franchise Wayback Burgers, which opened a location at 7690 Voice of America Center Dr. in West Chester Twp. earlier this year, is issuing a massive challenge to its guests today for National Cheeseburger Day.
The franchise’s 10th annual Triple Triple Challenge will see thousands of people flocking to Wayback Burgers locations nationwide to devour, in the fastest time possible, the Triple Triple Burger — a gigantic nine-patty burger complete with nine slices of yellow American Cheese topped with lettuce, tomato and the bun. The event begins at 10:30 a.m.

The competitive eating king or queen will take home a $3,330 cash prize in honor of their Triple Triple victory.
Regardless of where they take on the challenge, all 2017 Triple Triple Challenge participants will seek to dethrone California’s Molly Schuyler – the three-time reigning national champion who set the fastest Triple Triple Challenge time on record in 2014 by wolfing down the monstrous meal in just 38.95 seconds.
She’ll return to her favorite location in Medford, Ore., to defend her title against thousands of competitors across the country.
All Triple Triple Challenge participants will receive a free T-shirt while supplies last at each store and may share their experience by using the hashtag #TripleTripleChallenge on Twitter or Instagram, or just post photos and comments to Wayback Burgers’ Facebook page.
