University of Dayton freshman basketball player Malachi Smith partners with Hunny Bee’s Chicken.
The Dayton Daily News reports “Joe Niehaus, the co-founder of Hunny Bee’s, got to know Smith and other players when they started eating at their restaurant, but he had been thinking of partnering with a UD player since August when they were still working on opening the restaurant.”
Malachi Smith is a 6-0 guard from Bronx, New York. He was a three/four star high school recruit who missed his high school senior season because of the Covid pandemic. Less than a month ago, one of Smith’s Dayton teammates gained an NIL deal with another chicken restaurant.
Hunny Bee’s currently has a single location, which is in Dayton.
