Drake buys minority interest in fried chicken chain

Drake invests in chicken

Drake "jumped at the opportunity to invest" in fried chicken chain Dave's Hot Chicken.

The God's Plan star has purchased a minority stake in the restaurant franchise, and will own less than 50 per cent of the company, which currently has 22 stores across America. However, there are plans in place to open 25 more stores around the country by the end of the year.

Speaking to Bloomberg about his reasons for wanting to get involved in the business, Drake said: "I tried the food and it was amazing. After meeting the founders and hearing their story, I jumped at the opportunity to invest."

Sharing the Bloomberg post about Drake's business venture, the official Dave's Hot Chicken Instagram page wrote: "Started from the bottom now we're here - welcome to the Dave's Hot chicken family @champagnepapi."

Drake isn't the only celebrity investor in the company - Samuel L. Jackson and Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner are among the other famous faces on the board.
