Kanye West Closes One of His Fatburger Locations
According to NBC, one of Kanye West’s Chicago Fatburger restaurants closed over the weekend. Located in Orland Park, Illinois, the location shut down on Sunday (January 23) because of reported underperforming finances. Kanye has a deal to open ten Fatburgers in the Chi-town area, and the Orland Park chain was one of two locations that have opened doors so far. It first opened in 2008. Yeezy’s other location, located in Beverly, Illinois, is said to be doing well.
The report also states that the company’s CEO, Andy Widerhorn, said that Fatburger is now searching for a new replacement site in Orland Park. There is no word yet on where the new location, or Kanye’s other eight, will land. —Adam Fleischer
