Shiba Inu now has its own fast food chain
Shiba Inu branded fast food is now available in Italy
in a new blog postShiba Inu developer Shytoshi Kusama has announced a partnership with an Italian fast food restaurant called Welly’s.
Welly’s has already gone through a complete rebranding, making the dog Shiba Inu its new mascot and adopting a new slogan that references Ryoshi, the anonymous creator of the meme coin. It also adjusted its menu and marketing strategy.
The SHIB cryptocurrency will be used as a means of payment in the store, with rival coin Dogecoin being another possible option.
Kusama claims the obscure restaurant is known for “very high quality food”. The restaurant will offer healthy dishes:
Welly’s is a “burger joint”, but we understand the importance of having vegetarian, vegan and “healthy” fast food options. When our flagship store opens, we will introduce more options to meet these needs.
Currently, there is only one store located in Naples, but the team plans to reach a global scale, rejecting the idea of partnering with “huge centralized conglomerates”. While some might see the recent partnership as a gimmick, the team insists it’s for the long haul.
The developers also floated the idea of implementing blockchain-based food tracking with the help of Shibarium, a layer 2 solution that has yet to be launched.
Dog burgers and coins
As reported by U.Today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently asked McDonald’s to accept Dogecoin, but the fast-food giant laughed off the suggestion, jokingly urging the electric car maker to accept” Grimacecoin”.
Burger King has also attempted to increase its commitment to the cryptocurrency community.

MrBeast Burger, a restaurant chain started by popular YouTuber MrBeast, recently said it would add Dogecoin support if Musk were to retweet his post.
