Singer/songwriter Ryan Tedder has signed on to take a New York barbecue restaurant nationwide.
The OneRepublic frontman has signed a franchise ownership deal with Southern Hospitality Bbq to help company bosses expand to new locations.
The ambitious singer hopes to open 10 more restaurants in Denver, Nashville, Dallas and Austin and other major U.S. cities.
He tells RollingStone.com, "I have been involved with Southern Hospitality Bbq in New York for some time, and I'm looking forward to taking this relationship to the next level."
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
