| The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin Reveals She Will |
Be Launching A Line Of New Food Products
‘The Queen of Soul’ said in an interview with reporters that her pies and food products will rival those “other” sweet potato pies.
Franklin says she’s already met with a food group based in Phoenix to start developing her line of cooked goods. Aside from pies, Franklin says she plans to market and sell chili, gumbo and baked chicken.
However, the Respect singer later said that she and Patti “are cool.”
Ms. Franklin, however, has a lot to live up to. LaBelle's pies did so well at Wal-Mart that it was sold out for nearly a month before the retailer could re-stock them.
Though rumors of a personal beef has lived on for years, the women have yet to confirm. Franklin ambushing LaBelle's food lane, however, may only add more fuel to the fire.
