Apart from being an actor and a musician, Flav is also a Restaurateur. He opened Flav’s Fried Chicken along with Nick Cimino in 2011. Located in Clinton, Iowa, his restaurant specialized in Fried chicken and Soul food. However due to some disputes, within five months of operation, the founders decided to shut it down.
Soon after that, he teamed up with Salvatore Bitontia and Gino Harmon to open ” Flavor Flav’s Chicken & Ribs”. Even this time, things could not work for long and they closed the business within a year.
