Joey Fatone Reinvents Himself As Joey Calzone

Joey Fatone, is best known for being a member of the band *NSYNC, but since the band broke up nearly twenty years ago, he has ventured on to do other things.

From singing to acting to hosting and creating a restaurant, Fatone has done it all. Following his Italian heritage, he now reinvented himself as Joey Calzone. He even changed his name on social media. Fatone partnered with fast-casual restaurant, Schlotzsky’s, to launch the “Fatone Calzone,” which is now available nationwide and will be available the whole month.

The “Fatone Calzone” is stuffed with ham, salami and cheese, served with marinara dipping sauce. Along with the Fatone Calzone, the restaurant also launched BBQ Chicken and French Dip Calzones. You can order a calzone through their app or by visiting any of their locations.

Fatone, or should we say Calzone rather, is no stranger to the restaurant/food business. A few years ago, he launched Fat One’s Hot Dogs and Italian Ice. Fat One’s is a food truck/stand that travels around, mostly Florida and serves up some of his favorite food.

“Do I like food?” Fatone said in a press release. “Yes. I actually consider myself an expert. And nobody knows Italian food better than Joey Calzone, it’s literally in the name! That’s why I’m super excited to join forces with Schlotzsky’s to create my very own menu item and share my love for calzones with the world.”

It is so exciting to see what he will come up with next. As a food lover, Fatone is always coming up with something new.
