Joey Fatone is opening a hot dog and Italian ices store in Orlando’s Florida Mall. It’s called Fat Ones. (Get it?)

The *NSYNC-er made the announcement on Monday, tweeting that the spot will open in August. His brother in boy band-ness, Lance Bass, shared in the excitement and tweeted, “This is just perfect. The perfect amount of wrong.”

“After years of working on television food shows, I’m excited to open this new venture which is a combination of who I am, where I’m from and where I’ve been,” said Fatone in a statement via Billboard. “Launching Fat One’s at The Florida Mall, where I roamed as a middle school kid, felt like a perfect fit for our first location.”

According to the Orlando Business Journal, Fat One’s menu will include all-beef hot dogs with names like the Reuben, Gone Hollywood, and the Boybander, which comes with five mini hot dogs to denote the five members of *NSYNC (aw!).

Fatone is no stranger to the food world. He hosted the Food Network’s Rewrapped for two seasons and appeared on other shows on the channel like Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off and Chopped All-Stars.
