Fastest Pizza Box Folding Champion is From Michigan

The above video is from the 2021 International Pizza Expo & Conference pizza box folding competition to give you an idea of what the event looks like. It is pretty amazing the speed at which these competitors can get these boxes together. Probably a really good skill to have on weekends and events like the Super Bowl when high volumes of pizzas get ordered.

This wasn't Whisker's first time winning the event because last year he set the world record for folding 5 12-inch pizza boxes in 17.038 seconds. He didn't crush his speed record last year but won the competition again this year by folding up 5 boxes in 18.094 seconds.
