FRANCHISE PLAYER: NeNe Leakes Buys A Restaurant Franchise?!

​ ​ ​ ​

NeNe Leakes may not (yet) have landed her own reality show spinoff like her "Real Housewives of Atlanta" castmates, but she's making her mark in the entrepreneur world.

 

Deets on which restaurant NeNe just copped a franchise with inside....

 

NeNe tweeted today that her fans should be on the lookout for her new restaurant opening October 6th in Sacramento, CA--Famous Famiglia.

Her branch of the NY based worldwide chain restaurant will be in the Sacremento airport.  Gotta love a chick who is about her business and ownership.

Pizza anyone?

Congrats to Nene on owning a

Congrats to Nene on owning a franchise. I wish her the best with it. However, I hope she doesn't get her own show because she doesn't know how to behave in a professional manner. I do think she belongs on BBW.

I am so happy for Nene I

I am so happy for Nene I think having a franchise inside of an airport is probably better than having one on the street especially if its busy. Great business move!!!!

OprAH IS A TRUE BALLER. sHE

OprAH IS A TRUE BALLER. sHE IS A BILLIONAIRE MANY TIMES OVER. SHE WAS HEAVY WHEN SHE STARTED OFF. SOMEONE BELIEVED IN HER AND GAVE HER A CHANCE. SO DONT TALK DOWN ON NENE KLEAKES SIZE. SHE LOOKS GOOD FOR HER AGE. I DON'T THINK SHE IS FAT. I AM NOT HEAVY EITHER, I AM IN GREAT SHAPE. I JUST THINK ITS WRONG TO CRITICIZE HER BECAUSE SHE IS NOT A SIZE 2. BEYONCE IS NOT A SIZE 2 OR ZERO. JENNIFER LOPEZ IS NOT A SIZE 2. SO BE POSITIVE.

Why should anyone be positive

Why should anyone be positive about this clown-gorilla-fool??? She's atrocious, and it's moreso because of her "personality".

Not sure this is a smart business move in this economy but at least she is trying to build income beyond the reality circuit. At least when that gravy train ends, she will have a backup plan...if it is a good business deal.

Because if you're serious

Because if you're serious about quickly replacing your full time income (just to start) and spending your time doing what YOU want to do, I'm ready to show you exactly how I was able to go from $600 to my name to bringing in $6,000 per month like clockwork. And what's best is it will work for you even if you're totally clueless about the Internet or technology, have no experience or education and just wanna chill out in your house and never talk to anybody. This system works because YOU don't have to! Get the details .. Just type in your name, email and phone below. Then get ready to experience something different. Something that actually works!! http://BeInspired.OneBigPowerline.com ttys GodBless!! :)

She pondered on this decision

She pondered on this decision with some great portfolio investors. She picked a busy intersection, the airport in Sacramento. She picked a less accessible food chain, and also one with low productivity cost. Now, I would never want to be on her staff. Hopefully she manages this restaurant with care, and continues the process. She could translate this success nationwide. She knows us New Yorkers are leaving our great city in grooves, and taking advantage of the homesick New Yorkers is a great investment. Pinkberry was smart enough to expand beyond New York!

Maybe if she lost some

Maybe if she lost some weight, she would get a spin off. Owning a restaurant isn't gonna help her problem no more than an alcoholic owning a bar. you wanna be A list dump the double digit dress size OR ELSE.

YOU FREAK!! You are what's

YOU FREAK!! You are what's wrong with people today! It's not always about appearance. Well at least it shouldn't be. I don't even like NeNe but it's not fair for you to take a jab at her about her weight. Jeeese!

I like how fat women

I like how fat women conveniently say other fat women aren't fat. NO ONE ASKED YOU. ASK A MAN WHAT HE THINKS. Hollywood IS NEVER gonna lower it's standard to ghetto "Healthy" because size 12 want to be validate. don't hate the player hate the game this is about going to the NEXT LEVEL. you can be on TV and be a double digit dress just NOT A list. just NOT get the million dollar contracts or lead role.

Oprah isn't an actress.

Oprah isn't an actress. Wasn't 25 years ago when she started, and TODAY Oprah couldn't be oprah. You have to LOOK a certain way to be a RADIO DJ (see LA LA VAZQUES) Oprah start in local new. do you see any double digit girls reporting news? the weather girls look like strippers today. I didn't create the game WOMEN DID.

Sukanya krishnan is a

Sukanya krishnan is a beautiful reporter on the CB 11 morning show... She is not a size 2 probably a 10 or 12 and is one of the most beautiful and hilarious women on morning TV. And there is no "look" for a radio DJ, why would there be, you cant even see them.

No Oprah isnt an actress, she just appeared in a few movies as a lead role The Color Purple, Women of Brewster Place, Beloved, Native Son and she was the voice in a few dozen animated films... but no ur right she isnt an actress at all!!!

ok to stop yourself from

ok to stop yourself from sounding stupid on this blog you must first do research before stupid this like " you dont see any women on the news in double digits" weather women look like strippers" I beg to differ I can name one off the top of my head Julie Wright fox 5 news the biggest news network in the dc, va, and md area and guess what no research needed for that 1 so u need major facts before u come on here making yourself look and sound stupid

And Nene is an actress? You

And Nene is an actress? You are so confused, you can't possibly be serious. The most successful African Americans in entertainment are those that are entrepreneurs, true business people owning their own enterprises, i.e. Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey, Cathy Hughes, Bob Johnson. You are so confused and blinded by the limelight. A good head on your shoulders will get you further in this world (hollywood included) over looks any day You could be a size two with a banging body and a beautiful face, but if you don't have the smarts to own your brand, manage your finances, negotiate a decent contract, they will use your pretty ass up, suck you out of everything you have and leave you laying out on the street somewhere. Nene is taking a step in the right direction.

Finally one of the RHOA show

Finally one of the RHOA show a true business savvy nature. Although, she uttered words in the promo that should never be stated "I am very rich"[sic] Real women who are self made never have to state their wealth or broadcast purchases on twitter. She's continuously marketing diamonds "he" bought, Louis Vuitton bags, shoes..etc. While most of us have these items, I would never post on facebook or twitter what I have. Some things are evident without being stated. Smart investment, though. She should have moved a Sonic to the NYC area. When the hell are we going to get out Sonic?

I would never tell someone I ate Sonic if I were you sweetpea. You must be 200 lbs.

Yes I have eaten sonic.

Yes I have eaten sonic. Unfortunately we don't have one in NYC. Also, if it makes you feel better to think of me as 200lbs, sure I'm 200lbs matter fact 375.

Different Franchises have

Different Franchises have various start-up fees. You could buy into Mcdonald's for 60k, Best Western for 170k, In and out burger for 15k..I would advise you, if you have those sums lying around to buy shares in credit unions. With Bank of America announcing it's 5 dollar monthly debit card fee for members, the rebate would be great for about 3 months until all it's customers withdraw funds to transfer to credit unions. Trust me, to see a better margin on profits, Credit Unions are the way to invest!
