Drake Buys Stake in Dave’s Hot Chicken Restaurant Chain Drake is now a minority stake holder in Dave’s Hot Chicken. The fried chicken chain is backed by the Boston Red Sox chairman and also by actor Samuel L. Jackson. In a statement 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. Drake follows a trend of celebrities involved in food chains like Rick Ross with Wingstop, LeBron James and Blaze pizza, Shaquille O’Neal and Papa Johns and Magic Johnson with Starbucks and other chains. What is your favorite fast food chain? During the pandemic do you think you have eaten at fast food chains more or less?
