Drake Invests in New Fried Chicken Shop and It’s Opening Locations in Vancouver

This Los Angeles street food sensation is expanding into Canada in a big way. It’s apparently so good, that even Drake has taken a keen interest as an investor.

Dave’s Hot Chicken is known as being a fast and casual dining hit amongst fried chicken connoisseurs.

The company announced its massive Canadian expansion with 30 locations across B.C. and Ontario last year. Now we know that at least 2 locations will be opening in Metro Vancouver in early 2022.

Much like its name suggests, Dave’s Hot Chicken whips up some incredible Nashville-style hot chicken. Diners can choose between hot chicken sliders or hot chicken tenders, with seven varying degrees of heat (tip: reaper is not for the faint of heart).

Of course, the chicken also comes with lots of pickles.

On top of that, you can also choose from a variety of delicious sides, including: mac & cheese, kale slaw, fries or cheese fries.

The chicken brand has been a huge hit in LA since 2017 and fans are excited to get a taste of it here in Canada.

Drake is one of those fans. He can’t seem to get enough of this hot fried chicken goodness.  The Toronto rapper has been reported saying, ” I tried the food, and it was amazing. After meeting the founders and hearing their story, I jumped at the opportunity to invest.”
