Welly's, a Shiba Inu-themed fast food restaurant located in Naples, Italy, is intending to expand globally, according to a recent tweet.

It claims that it has received "hundreds" of requests to open more franchises over the past week.
Last week, Shiba Inu developer Shytoshi Kusama announced a partnership with the Naples-based burger joint. The burger joint performed a full rebrand, making the meme coin its official mascot. Welly's also announced that it would accept Shiba Inu as a payment option while also considering adding support for rival Dogecoin.

The Shiba Inu community could take part in managing the chain through a decentralized autonomous organization called DOGGY DAO, whose first phase was released in early December.

The Shiba Inu team is touting Welly's as a healthy fast food option, which supposedly sets it apart from major chains such as McDonald's and Burger King.

The one-store restaurant, which opened its doors in 2021, will also offer its customers non-fungible tokens to gain access to "exclusive benefits."

Shiba Inu has been on a tear over the past week, rallying by more than 70%. The Ethereum-based meme token remains one of the most-traded cryptocurrencies.

While it seems improbable that the Welly's partnership could spur such a big rally, there are other developments within Shiba Inu's ecosystem. As reported by U.Today, blockchain solutions provider Unification Foundation recently announced that a public testnet of the Shibarium Layer 2 solution would be launched in the near future, following months of anticipation.

In late January, Shiba Inu announced its entry into the Metaverse with the "Shiberse" project.
