Not fast food . . . Flatts food. As first reported by CountryWeekly.com in March , Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts are expanding their brand to become restauranteurs.
The boys are creating and developing a string of themed restaurants across the U.S. and Canada that will focus on great food and nationally recognized live entertainment.
"We're just trying to expand our brand and give fans something new and different from us," Gary told CountryWeekly.com in March.
The first restaurant will open in Phoenix and will include a dining room, state-of-the-art sound system, stage, indoor/outdoor bar and retail space.
Future restaurants are scheduled to open in Tysons Corner, Va.; Columbus, Ohio; Pittsburgh; Raleigh, N.C.; Minneapolis; Long Island, N.Y.; Charlotte, N.C.; Tampa, Fla.; Boston; and Madison, Wis
No word on whether the "Why Wait" wedding chapel from 2011's Flatts Fest will be on-site.
