Pitbull is expanding his business empire… And, the move could lead to him becoming “The Sandwich King” of the Sunshine State…
The 31-year-old Cuban-American rapper has become a partner and board member of Miami Subs Grill, according to the president of the fast-food chain.
Richard Chwatt, the general manager of the Fort Lauderdale-based chain, made the announcement Tuesday night during a private party with franchisees and directors of the chain, which was founded in 1980. Chwatt didn’t reveal the terms of the agreement with the singer though.
The agreement reportedly grants Pitbull a “significant” position in the chain, which has more than 40 stores, mainly in South Florida.
The partnership is expected to re-launch the brand, which has languished in recent years.
Evidently, the pact gives Pitbull—who has been a regular customer of Miami Subs Grill since he was a teenager—the rights to expand the chain in some areas of Latin America and the Caribbean.
He said at the private party that he was there as a “partner, not as a spokesman” for the brand, adding that “The Pitbull team is joining the Miami Subs team.”
