During this year’s offseason, Chauncey Billups had agreed to re-join the Detroit Pistons. At 37-years-old, “Mr. Big Shot’s” NBA career is almost over.
Once players are no longer playing in the league and retires, it’s difficult to secure a steady flow of income. In most cases, this problem leads to poor judgment and awful money management.
Chauncey Billups fully understands these situations, which is why he along with former NBA player Junior Bridgeman have teamed up to purchase a total of 30 Wendy’s restaurants. (29 existing restaurants and one under construction).
Junior Bridgeman has extreme experience in the restaurant industry, so much so that Bridgeman currently happens to be Wendy’s second largest franchisee owning a total of 196 Wendy’s restaurants.
With Bridgeman’s exposure added with Chauncey Billups’ additional funding, these two individuals will be running and assisting in Wendy’s overall brand transformation. (New logo, new packaging, etc.)
Judging from the overall scope of the business venture, Chauncey Billups seems to be in good position once his basketball career is over. Good for him.
