Shaquille O’Neal plans to open 50+ restaurants with a Charles Barkley sandwich

Shaquille O’Neal has big plans to open over 50 Big Chicken restaurants in Texas with the first scheduled to open in 2023 in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Other locations include Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. To be exact, Shaq plans on opening 56 restaurants. Big Chicken debuted in 2018 in Las Vegas, and with the help of the former Lakers legend, the chain is set to grow massively.

Shaquille O’Neal has a net worth of $600 million, and so he’s well set to make the plan happen. Shaq also has many interesting dish names for the restaurants.

For example, the M.D.E. stands for Most Dominant Ever, Shaq’s nickname. It’s a fried chicken sandwich that comes with some special Shaq sauce.

For a bigger meal, people can go with the Charles Barkley sandwich. This fried chicken sandwich is a monster, featuring mac and cheese, crispy fried onions, and roasted garlic barbecue aioli. CEO Josh Halpern had the perfect description for the sandwich. “It’s as big and over-the-top as Chuck is,” he says.
