On September 18-20, 2018, 18-year Benihana veteran Chef Raymundo Mendez shattered the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for longest cooking marathon.
The 42-hour cooking marathon honored the first-annual National Fried Rice Day. Benihana partnered with Cornerstone Community Outreach, a division of Feeding America, to donate all fried rice cooked during the marathon. Cornerstone Community Outreach serves nearly 500 low-income men, women and children daily in the city of Chicago, helping to raise the quality of life.
