Toby Keith opened his seventh Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill in suburban Detroit earlier this month as the latest in a long line of celebrities who've tried to sell a meal with their A-, B- or C-list name.
Many celebrities invest in restaurants - Ashton Kutcher, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, to name a few - they just don't always put their name above the door.
The celebrity moniker can be both a blessing and a curse when it comes to starting a restaurant.

Neither does anyone else.
