Bubba Gump Shrimp, Says Wall Start Accepting Bitcoin This Week CEO of Bubba Gump
In a recent interview with CNBC, Landry's chairman, the operator of restaurant franchises such as Morton's steakhouses and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., stated that most restaurants would soon welcome bitcoin as their payment.
"It is probable that in the next 90 days, you will have all our restaurant brands — or 80 percent to 90 percent — where you no longer have to use Mastercard, Visa or American Express," said Landry's Chief Executive Officer Tilman Fertitta. "Bitcoin or other digital currencies can be used."
Select Matsro's locations, one of the chains in the company, will welcome bitcoin this week, Fertitta stated.
A car dealer in Texas owned by Fertitta has allegedly been accepting bitcoin since 2018, noting that his Houston Rockets NBA franchise has "taken it as well."
"It's incredible how simple the deal is, and it's here to stay," explained Fertita. "It's where it is, because it's likely it will happen."

About 20 days ago, Caruso, a big property firm, revealed plans to embrace Bitcoin as rental payment. So in March, Tesla's electric car maker started taking bitcoin payments.
The increased acceptance of Bitcoin payments by large firms, as well as the rise in the number of firms holding Bitcoin, is a significant predictor of Bitcoin's rising acceptance and general acceptability.
