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.
The style of cuisine is still a mystery but Jay and Bey went vegan for a minute in 2013 and Beyonce, now 36, is an advocate for the benefits of plant-based diets.
