Travis Kelce is gearing up for his new steakhouse.

During an interview with PEOPLE highlighting his Kelce Jam music festival, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end shared details about 1587 Prime, which he is opening with teammate Patrick Mahomes.

“What I can tell you is that we're trying to open it up by around this time next year, so a 2025 grand opening,” he tells PEOPLE. “I've just been so fortunate to meet such amazing people [and] to be in it with my brother Pat Mahomes.”

Kelce quips that “you guys can put two and two together obviously” when it comes to the name. (It’s a mashup of their jersey numbers.)

Global hospitality group, Noble 33, is partnering with the athletes to bring the Kansas City restaurant to life inside the Loews Kansas City Hotel.

“Me and Pat know the guys and and girls over at Noble 33. And it's just such an unbelievable opportunity,” says Kelce.

"[It’s] just another thing that we want to bring to Kansas City, to be able to show our appreciation for the city, knowing how much they love their food and how much they love their football,” he adds.

As a future steakhouse owner, the NFL pro revealed an important food preference to PEOPLE: how he likes his steak cooked.

“I'm a medium guy. I like a medium. Hot pink center all the way through,” he says.

Last month, Kelce and Mahomes announced their joint business venture, which is described as the "ultimate experiential dining destination” in a release.

The massive modern steakhouse will take up 10,000 square feet and span two floors. 1587 Prime will house several private dining rooms, a cutting edge chef’s kitchen, and an impressive meat display. There will be "hyper-subtle nods" to Mahomes and Kelce’s football accolades.

Mahomes recently said it was important to make the restaurant affordable. “I’m sure there will be some things on there that will be $15,” he said in a video shared by Fox 4 Kansas City. “All honesty though, we thought about that and we don’t want to make it too upscale, too high-priced that not everybody can go.”

He added: “So we’re going to make it a place where hopefully Kansas City can call it home, and that everybody can be there and really enjoy it.”

And it’s not just for customers to enjoy — the star quarterback wants to celebrate post Chiefs games at the joint. “Hopefully we can win some games at Arrowhead Stadium and then we can get to go over and have a few drinks and food with it,” he said.

The Kelce Jam music festival returns on May 18. Fans can register now at ahead of Friday's pre-sale.
