Flavor Flav has been in Clinton, Iowa preparing for today’s scheduled opening of Flav’s Fried Chicken, the first in a planned chain, according to the Associated Press.
Flav, who has a culimary degree and restaurant experience, picked this unlikely launch location after consulting with business partner and local restaurateur, Nick Cimino.
Flav insists that he will be an active owner. He promises to be in town often to help promote the product and make sure the chicken is cooked to his liking. Even Thursday night, when Flav entered Clinton, he displayed his kitchen skills by frying up the first piece of chicken at FFC.
“I don’t want to be just known to have a spot,” Flav said. “You’re going to find me in here working. You’re going to be catching me seasoning my chicken, flouring my chicken, frying up my chicken, and not only that, but serving my chicken to my people.”
