Thousands of MrBeast fans stormed the opening of the first physical location of his burger franchise in a New Jersey mall. His fans packed the venue, and he set the record for most burgers sold in 24 hours after just a couple of days of opening.

Although MrBeast Burger had been open since December 2020, it was operating virtually. Back then, several restaurants had been closed due to the pandemic lockdown. The content creator saw at the time an opportunity to fill a certain need by selling burgers online from ghost kitchens and it has been a massive achievement.

MrBeast went from making videos in which he paid people money to complete challenges to opening restaurant franchises. And it's not the only one. There are several youtubers who have transcended from the platform to the most coveted lists of the economic media with their alternative businesses. Here are the most notable.

He then entered the world of telecommunications with PilloFon, a mobile phone company.
