Marshawn Lynch is embarking on a new endeavor as a restaurant owner this summer.
The Raiders running back will be taking over Scend’s Restaurant and Bar, an Oakland-area soul restaurant that’s been around since 1967, following the retirement of longtime owner Cassie Nickelson in August.
“I’m comfortable with him and I like him,” Nickelson, 80, told KTVU.
The two also go way back.
“When he was 9-years-old, he came across the street to get a hamburger and French fries,” she recalled. “Twenty-five-cent French fries and a 75-cent hamburger.”
