The Backstreet Boys are back, with tequila and barbecue
The Backstreet Boys are set to open their barbecue restaurant.
BSB Entertainment Inc., a company founded by band members A.J. McLean, Howie D., Brian Littrell and Nick Carter, filed documents to trademark "Backstreet Barbecue" for use in a new restaurant, according to TMZ.
The plans were launched on February 9, and come after the band announced they were entering the tequila business.
During an interview with food blog The Tasting Table after their two-show stint at the luxury resort Moon Palace in Cancun on Wednesday, Nick revealed the band was looking for a partner in Mexico to start making their own tequila.
"I like a good reposado or anejo (types of tequilas)," Kevin Richardson, the only member of the band not to feature as a named director on the restaurant documents, said, before Nick chimed in: "And that leads us into talking about our tequila venture that we'll be coming out with. (We) just need to find a partner here in Mexico."
