Kanye West has been forced to close his Fatburger restaurant located in suburban Orland Park, Illinois. The joint had only been open for a year-and-a-half. KW Foods, LLC, the rapper's restaurant company, opened the restaurant in 2008, but James Newell, Fatburger's director of operations, blamed the recent financial performance of the store as the reason the location was shuttered. "It's unfortunate, but we hope to have a presence in Orland Park again in the future," Newell said.
However, West's other Fatburger, situated near 95th & Western in the city's Beverly neighborhood, remains open for business and good to go.
