“I’m not a businessman, I’m a BUSINESS..MAN!”

It looks like Jay-Z is reportedly eyeing the food industry with plans to launch a new venture to add to his growing list of endeavors and we are so here this.

As you know Hov already owns and operates his highly successful 40/40 chain of clubs/lounges in Manhatta since 2003, and has expanded to Atlanta, Brookly, and Las Vegas, but now he has reportedly sought to open a new chain under the name ‘Hovino.’

According to reports, S. Carter Enterprises – Jay’s birth name (Shawn Carter) – has applied to trademark the name ‘Hovino’ – asking for an International trademark – and covers ‘Restaurant and café services; carry-out restaurant services; self-service restaurants; catering; serving food and drinks; take-out restaurant services; bar services, pubs; cocktail lounges; wine bars.’

Earlier this month, the mogul also filed trademark the name ‘AKA SHAWN CARTER’ for a variety of goods, including shirts, pants, jackets, coats, bathing suits, ties, skirts, footwear, hats and various other clothing products according to Daily Mail UK.

It’s not clear when or where the restaurant chain will launch, but we are certainly on the lookout!
