Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Expanding His Restaurant Chain to Pittsburgh

Wait, this guy owns restaurants?


NFL quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is apparently an investor in a South Carolina-based chainlet of sports pubs — and now, he's bringing the concept home. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Roethlisberger and the King Street Grille concept are "scouting spaces" for a Pittsburgh location of the upscale sports bar, which has seven restaurants in South Carolina. It'll be the first outside SC for King Street, and owner Scott Kier tells the TRIB they're focusing in the city's North Hill area, where Roethlisberger and several other Steelers players live. No location is set yet, though Kier says the restaurant could open as soon as six months from now, in the NFL off-season.
