Chicago — Emcee, producer, fashion trendsetter, film creator — Kanye West wears many hats. One that isn’t looking so good on him these days is his chef’s hat, as Yeezy the restaurateur suffered a stinging blow last week.
In 2008, West decided that his home town of Chicago needed a dose of the West Coast, in the form of the cult burger stand Fatburger. After some wrangling, his food company KW Foods, LLC was able to obtain the rights to open ten Fatburgers around the Chicago area.
The first one opened its doors in suburban Orland Park in September of that year, followed by a second in Chicago’s Beverly neighborhood.
