Drew Brees delivers touchdowns on the field and happy stomachs off it for Who Dat Nation.
The legendary New Orleans quarterback is adding to his investments in the restaurant industry.
The 40-year-old Brees, regarded by black and gold fans as the G.O.A.T., is now an investor in Smalls Sliders, a new fast-food burger spot that will focus focus “exclusively on craveable, premium slider burgers as the main dish.”according to a press release per NOLA.com.
All meals will be prepared in an open kitchen.
The restaurants are composed of recycled shipping containers, which enables a rapid construction. Smalls is only available through drive-through and walk-up service, but there will be tables for those wanting to eat outside.
The inaugural Smalls Sliders is opening in the summer in Baton Rouge at 4343 Nicholson Drive around Tigerland. Smalls plans to have locations across the U.S. in the future.
Last season, Brees passed for 3,992 yards and 32 touchdowns as the Saints finished one victory short of reaching the Super Bowl.
Brees moved ahead of Peyton Manning for the most career passing yards in NFL history during an October victory against the Washington Redskins. Brees pushed ahead of Brett Favre for second most all-time passing touchdowns the next month in a win vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.
Next season’s Super Bowl is in Miami, Florida which is where Brees guided the Saints to their first title in a victory against the Indianapolis Colts in 2010.
