Tygawants to throw struggling restaurants and eateries a lifeline … he’s opening a virtual restaurant and his secret chicken recipe and delivery plan could help the joints survive.
The rapper joined us on “TMZ Live” and unveiled his virtual restaurant concept … Tyga Bites — baked, boneless and free of antibiotics.
Here’s how it works … Tyga’s targeting 500 restaurants and kitchens trying to make enough cash to survive during the pandemic. He and his company will teach the chefs how to make the oven-baked chicken tenders. He’s partnering with Grubhub which will deliver the food. So, Tyga won’t have a single, brick and mortar restaurant, but he’ll cover the country. Kinda genius.
There will be 3 types of chicken and 12 sauces … and that does the trick. He’s marketing it as a healthy, delicious choice — black garlic, lemon black pepper and peri-peri. He’s also serving Tyga Tots (love the name) — regular and sweet potato — and chocolate chip cookies. And, there are beverages to wash it all down.
It could be a blueprint for other celebs to start a virtual restaurant and help struggling restaurants.
