Joey Fatone is opening a new hot dog stand at the Florida Mall in Orlando. The opening date is set for September 1oth.
The new eatery will be named Fat One’s Hot Dogs & Italian Ice — a delicious play on the former *NSYNC singer’s last name and reputation for being the “fat one” in the band.
Fat One will be stationed in a kiosk between Five Guys and La Madeleine Country French Cafe in the mall’s new dining pavilion in August, The Orlando Business Journal reports. The menu will include a variety of styles of 100 percent angus beef hot dogs, including the Boybander, which includes five mini hot dogs. Joey’s place will also serve Italian Ice. This is his first one. No word yet if more are on there way.
“After years of working on television food shows, I’m excited to open this new venture which is a combination of who I am, where I’m from and where I’ve been,” said Fatone in a statement via Billboard. “Launching Fat One’s at The Florida Mall, where I roamed as a middle school kid, felt like a perfect fit for our first location.”
Yes, I cant’t wait to try it out!
