Rick Ross Invests in Wingstop Franchise

Rick Ross

Rick Ross is cooking up a new business venture. The hip-hop mogul has invested in chicken wing chain Wingstop, with plans to open his first restaurant this fall.

The Maybach Music Group CEO recently signed a development agreement to bring Wingstop to Memphis, Tenn., and will roll out his first of several locations at 7706 Winchester Road in Memphis.

“After tasting Wingstop’s signature Lemon Pepper-flavored wings in Miami, I knew this was a franchise I wanted to add to my investments,” explained the Bawse, who raps about Wingstop on his latest album Teflon Don.

“Rick Ross will be a great addition to the Wingstop family,” added Jim Flynn, Wingstop 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.”

Ross, who is currently in the studio working on his fifth studio album God Forgives, I Don’t, joins a growing list of high-profile Wingstop franchisees, including NFL and NBA athletes. Fox Sports analyst Troy Aikman became an investor and spokesman for the company and now serves on the company’s board of directors.

    @Joyams, why the hostility, I was joking because he’s a big guy and he bought a chicken restaurant. I’m not small either, and I loves me some chicken too. And no, I don’t own a franchise…yet.

    The lemon pepper are a favorite of most people, especially if you don’t like hot sauce or bbq. The fries have a killer seasoning too. Has a little sugar or somethin in it.
