Former NBA player Junior Bridgeman is the second-largest Wendy’s franchisee with total or partial ownership of 196 Wendy’s restaurants under his company Bridgeman Foods LLC. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Junior brought Chauncey Billups in on the makers of those delicious bacon cheeseburgers with a pretzel bread with the purchase of 30 franchises in the St Louis market.
I’m actually surprised more NBA players haven’t bought fast food franchises considering so many have been endorsed by McDonalds, Burger King or Taco Bell.
Since we are on the topic of fast food and NBA players, I have to bring up the Arby’s diss on TMac during the NBA playoffs.
@DragonflyJonez Actually, we had to release him. He kept making too many turnovers. 😉
