2 Chainz will be expanding his Esco Restaurant And Tapas chain, after Chainz settled a lawsuit with the family of Pablo Escobar.
Chainz signed his first franchise agreement,
“[Dillard’s] one of the people that really made my transition into this hospitality space easier because originally my introduction to the space was real estate,” said Chainz. “I own properties and dirt and stuff like that. So that merged with her passion and mine and made me very comfortable in this space going on six years now.”
After being sued by the Escobar family for using the intellectual property, he managed to successfully settle out of court to the tune of $15K, which ultimately allowed the expansion.
