A Kayne West Chicago-Area Fatburger Shuts Down
(Chicago Business Journal) — The curtain has come down on rap star Kayne West’s suburban Fatburger. Mr. West’s franchise at 15100 S. La Grange Road in Orland Park closed Sunday after failing to meet financial expectations of Santa Monica, Calif.-based Fatburger Corp. Mr. West, through his company KW Foods LLC, has the rights to develop 10 Fatburger restaurants in the Chicago area. He has a second franchise location, in the Beverly neighborhood. He opened the Orland Park restaurant in August 2008.
