    As he continues to expand his business portfolio and legendary status , Jay-Z is planning to open his own fast-food chain, under the name Hovino. According to new reports Hova has applied to trademark the brand Hovino with a goal of opening an eatery that will serve dine-in and take-out customers.

    The application has been made under S. Carter Enterprises, through which the rapper runs various businesses under his real name, Shawn Carter.

    This revelation wasnt offered by Jay-Z, but discovered though documents, which were obtained by The Blast. The trademark request is International, and covers Restaurant and caf services; carry-out restaurant services; self-service restaurants; catering; serving food and drinks; take-out restaurant services; bar services, pubs; cocktail lounges; wine bars.
