Rick Ross Expands Wingstop Franchise In Memphis, Receives Key to the City

Rick Ross recently expanded his Wing Stop franchise in Memphis and received a special token of appreciation from the city. 

According to Vibe, Rick Ross visited Memphis last week where he received the key to the city from Mayor AC Wharton. Ross was awarded the key at the grand opening of two renovated Wingstop restaurants.
"It is most definitely an exciting time for me and what i like to call the "Boss Wings" team when we open a new Wingstop," Ross said. "Not only is it growth for us, we know that it is also growth for the community, providing jobs, good food and a family environment for the people of that town. We definitely look forward to continuing to help grow the city of Memphis."

While in Memphis, Ross also stopped by St. Jude's Children's Hospital where he was introduced to the faculty as well as the children battling cancer.

Ross was reportedly overcome with emotion during his visit.

"I just met children facing with the biggest challenge of their lives and they still have smiles on their faces," he said. "My heart goes out to them and their parents. I'm glad that I'm able to lend my consistent support to them through my Memphis based Wingstop locations. These are the biggest bosses I've seen thus far. My continued prayers go up for them."

YMCMB rapper Tyga shares Ross' sentiment. He has been rallying to get the Empire State Building to change it's colors to gold in support of Pediatric Cancer Awareness.

Tyga is asking for the lights to be changed in September.
