Rick Ross is taking his “boss” talent to the chicken business.
The Maybach Music C.E.O. has partnered up with Wingstop to open up his own restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee.
Platinum selling rapper Rick Ross is expanding his business empire into the restaurant business, via a new partnership with national restaurant chain, Wingstop.
Rick Ross has signed a development agreement with the Richardson, Texas-based company, which has over 480 Wingstop restaurants across the United States and Mexico.
Rick Ross will open the first of several Wingstop restaurants in Memphis, this Fall.
Ross, who name checked Wingstop brand on the song “MC Hammer” from his album Teflon Don, felt an affinity with the brand, which made it easier to make the decision to invest.
“After tasting Wingstop’s signature lemon pepper–flavored wings in Miami, I knew this was a franchise I wanted to add to my investments,” Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com in a statement today (August 4th).
The Wingstop menu focuses solely on cooked-to-order chicken, along with the chain’s newest offering, glider sandwiches.
“Rick Ross will be a great addition to the wing stop family,” said Jim Flynn, Wingstop’s CEO. “He’s a talented artist and brings a huge fan base to the concept. We look forward to growing the brand with him in Memphis.”
Rick Ross’ Wingstop location in Memphis is slated to open this Fall, at 7706 Winchester Road.
