In preparation for the opening of his new restaurant Chicken N Beer, Ludacris has announced that he will be closing his first foray into the food industry, Straits Atlanta.

Luda decided to close up shop after winning the contract to open Chicken N Beer at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport with Atlanta Restaurant Partners. Straits was first opened in 2008.

“As I continue to learn and evolve as a businessman, I am extremely excited to put my restaurateur footprint into a new venture inside the busiest international airport in the United States, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport,” said Luda. “Straits was a great segue into the industry and with Chicken N Beer I can create my own concept. I look forward to expanding my creativity and driving to a much higher plane.”
