I am all for Flavor Flavor opening up a business, but are we not at fried chicken overload in this country? Fried foods have been proven to be the precursor to heart disease, obesity, and a bunch of other ailments, and the last thing people need is another fried chicken joint.
Rapper and reality show star Flavor Flav is opening a fried chicken restaurant in Clinton, Iowa. Why Clinton, Iowa, which even Flav admits is “way out here in the middle of some place”? His business partner, Nick Cimino, is from Clinton, and it was his idea to open the restaurant, which is located next door to a KFC. Flav had previously sold his chicken wings at a restaurant Cimino owns in Las Vegas.
This is the first of what Flav says will be “hundreds” of Flav’s Fried Chicken locations — which he says will open within in the next year(!). And he fully intends to get behind the counter — Flav graduated from culinary school in 1978 and has cooked in several restaurants.
He told reporters, “I want to be known as up in my spot. Active…You’re going to catch me in there, seasoning up my chicken, flouring up my chicken, frying up my chicken.”
