(Hip Hop Wired) — Co-founders of the original 40/40 Club, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, Desiree Gonzalez and Juan Pérez have had their fair share of success franchising the sportsbar that first opened in Manhattan in 2003. The restaurant business is not what it once was however and due to financial troubles and label disputes, not all of the chains were able to survive. With the times changing, Jay-Z and his cohorts have decided to team up with Delaware North Companies, a hospitality and food service company, to open up 40/40 bars in airports around the country where customers commute daily.
