If you were an 'N Sync fan (or still are, who are we kidding?) you probably remember Joey Fatone being the butt of many unfortunate jokes. He wasn't as slight as the other lads in the group, and his name breaks down too easily into "Fat One." But Fatone embraces the unfortunate name and is getting ahead of the bullying in the best way possible: He's opening a hot dog stand called Fat One's at Orlando's Florida Mall.

Joey Fatone told Billboard about the stand:

“After years of working on television food shows [Rewrapped and My Family Recipe Rocks!], I’m excited to open this new venture which is a combination of who I am, where I’m from and where I’ve been. Launching Fat One’s at The Florida Mall, where I roamed as a middle school kid, felt like a perfect fit for our first location.”

So, yeah, next time you see someone make a cruel joke at the dude, know that he's literally making bank off it. You go, Joey!

Fat One's will open in August. Read more about it here, then watch our recent interview with Fatone, where he compares his boy band days with My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2:
