Posted February 07, 2019 10:48:56The Chip Ganacci Racing restaurant has been taking over pizza restaurants for years, and this time, the owner of Chip Ganadis Pizza & Pasta has his sights set on the entire world.
The Chip Ganacis Pizza franchise in New York City is owned by James T. McQueen Jr., who was arrested in May for stealing more than $1.5 million from his own company, the Chip & Co., which manufactures pizza dough.
The restaurant was shut down by the FBI after authorities seized about 2,200 pounds of stolen goods.
The Chip & co. restaurant was forced to close after McQueen failed to pay rent and utilities for two months.
He also allegedly took a stake in the Chip-Ganardi Pizza franchise and tried to buy it out with proceeds from a business venture.
In August, the FBI said it was looking for McQueen.
He was indicted in January 2018 on federal securities fraud charges.
McQueen’s company was taken over by Chip Ganadi, who had bought the restaurant from the company in 2017.
The owner told reporters he is “very disappointed” and will take legal action against the company.
“I would love for Chip Ganadian to make a comeback.
I know he would love to.
He would love,” McQueen said, according to the New York Daily News.
McQ has not commented on the Chip GANADI Pizza franchise, and he has not responded to multiple requests for comment.
