Rascal Flatts will not be opening their namesake chain of restaurants after all. The trio announced their plans to get into the restaurant business several years ago, but according to a message to fans on Rascal Flatts social media, that's off the table.
They wrote, "You may have notice our name was associated with a restaurant project. We licensed the use of our name to a restaurant developer a few years back but never participated in the ownership or development of the restaurants in any way. We are not responsible for any obligation of the developer RF, IP, LLC.
Because we know you have been looking forward to enjoying our themed restaurants, we wanted to let you know that this project is no longer happening. We ended the agreement and do not have a business relationship with the developer. They are not authorized to use our name in any way. We wanted to be transparent to our fans in case there was any confusion related to our involvement in the restaurants."
Rascal Flatts are focused on their new music, which includes covers of some of their musical heroes like Kenny Loggins, Foreigner and Hall & Oates, for their recently-release EP, Jukebox. They're also climbing the charts with their current single, "Back To Life."
