Rick Ross Launches Checkers Franchise In His Hometown


Before he founded the record label Maybach Music Group. Rick Ross was William Leonard Roberts II AKA “Big Will.” Rick Ross rise to stardom began in Carol City, a neighborhood in Miami Gardens. Rick Ross grew up in Carol City, where he worked at the local car wash and could always be seen at Checkers eating his favorite meal.

Ross, who is self-made, is not only an award-winning producer but also a businessman. He owns several Wingstop Restaurants here in Memphis as well as the Midsouth and he also received the keys to the City of Memphis back in 2014. Ross is now in a financial position to have whatever he wants, and he wanted a Checkers — the very same Checkers that he used to eat at after his high school football games with his teammates. Ross bought the Checkers in his old stomping grounds so he could give back to the community, and provide jobs to people in his hometown.
