Kanye West to Conquer Fast Food Game

What does Grammy Award Winning rap artist Kanye West do after graduation? According to music news source NME.com, Mr. West has purchased the rights to open 11 Fatburger restaurants in his hometown of Chicago as well as the Los Angeles area. The fast food chain, which dubs itself the “Last Great Hamburger Stand,” specializes in fried and flame grilled burgers that are made to order.

In September, West will open his first location in Orland Park, Chicago followed by an LA location in January. The “Louis Vuitton Don” won’t be the first celebrity Fatburger owner though, as television personality Montel Williams, Bay Area rapper E-40, and Lakers’ legend Magic Johnson are already owners.

Mr. Unstable Is Fired, Along With His Co-Workers

“Mr. Unstable”, a young man who decided it was funny to bathe in a Burger King kitchen sink, video tape it, and post it for the world to see, is now getting the attention he deserves (or doesn’t deserve). I saw this video a day or so ago, and it bugged me…but I didn’t post it because (a) the people involved are idiots (b) I didn’t want to give it attention (c) it now has made it onto various news channels and websites, so I figured we would elaborate on it. Apparently, the circulation of this video has paved the way for all the employees involved to be fired. Any remaining employees are being retrained in health and sanitation procedures. (Thx WDTN)

Goodbye McDonald's Double Cheeseburger?

Due to the growing cost of cheese, McDonald’s is considering yanking this flagship item from its dollar menu. Some restaurants have already begun serving it with a single slice of cheese, others have upped the price, while others have replaced it with just a “double hamburger”. Only time will tell what time of long term effect this will have on the burger chain. Not only does the Dollar Menu drive traffic to the restaurant, but it accounts for 14% of the company’s sales.
