Flavor Flav's Fried Chicken Flameout

Flav had pitched a reality show based at the restaurant that "will feel something like Happy Days."

But that was before he tried the potato salad.


From AP:


From the Quad City Business Journal:

"After 13 weeks in business, Flavor Flav's Fried Chicken in Clinton, Iowa, closed Sunday night, sparking a war of words between the rap icon and the local merchant who was his business partner."


"The restaurant opened Jan. 24, with the rapper entertaining the mayor and members of the Chamber of Commerce at the ribbon cutting. Lines of customers stretched for blocks in Clinton, a city of 26,000 that received national media exposure."


From the Quad City Times:

"When Flavor Flav and Nick Cimino went into business together in Clinton, Iowa, 13 weeks ago, Cimino's mother said the men were 'like brothers.'"


From TMZ:

"It's official - drunk people in Vegas will soon be able to turn to Flavor Flav for all of their late night fried chicken munchy needs . . . because he just locked his deal to open a new joint in Sin City.

"Moments ago, in front of the Crazy Girls strip club at The Riviera Hotel and Casino . . . Flav sealed the deal to open a mega-store at the Riv called, 'Flavor Flav's House Of Flavor.'"


Comments welcome.
