New York City’s, Famous Ben’s Pizza got a makeover from Lil Yachty for his pop-up pizzeria. For a couple of days, the rapper will operate his own pizza shop much to the delight of his Lil Boat fans. They will even get a chance to taste a limited edition slice named for the rapper.
Not only will the eatery feature pizza, there will be other pizza-inspired items available like clothing and pizza boxes. Apparently, the rapper took Ben’s Pizzas vintage uniforms and put his own spin on them. There are t-shirts with pizzas, a Lil Yachty delivery guy, and a slice of pizza with his tour dates on it.
Now that’s how you capitalize on food and build your brand. The clothing comes in three primary colors, red, white, or green. All the merchandise will vary in price from $5 to $100. There’s no word on what toppings will be on the limited edition slice, but fans will have to move quickly. The shop is only open for two days.
Even if you are not a fan of his music, you have to be curious about the pop-up pizzeria. Everyone loves pizza. And you have to give Lil Yachty kudos for trying something different. In this day and age, every artist has to do something to keep his name in the spotlight.
So, if you are a fan of Famous Ben’s Pizza or the rapper, stop by and see what all the hype is about. We are sure that curiosity will definitely bring out plenty of patrons. And while you’re there, pick up a shirt, or a hat, a pizza box, or a hoodie. The possibilities are endless and there is something in everyone’s price range.
