Two-time NBA MVP and NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has announced his equity partnership with Canadian content and confectionary brand Candy Funhouse. The Milwaukee Bucks All-Star has joined as a shareholder of the brand, and will play a significant role in the ongoing expansion of the online candy company. This deal follows on the heels of Candy Funhouse launching its U.S. website, giving American fans the opportunity to indulge in some of Giannis’ favorite candy from around the world.

“We are extremely excited and honored to have Giannis and the Antetokounmpo family, owners of Ante Inc. join the Candy Funhouse team as owners and collaborators," says Candy Funhouse CEO Jamal Hejazi.

Hejazi continues, “At Candy Funhouse we strive to spread joy through memorable experiences, and with his example of hard work, and dedication to spread positivity, Giannis embodies exactly what the Candy Funhouse brand stands for. Which is why we could not be more thrilled to have the Antetokounmpo's represent our brand.”

Having amassed a global following, Giannis and his brothers, Thanasis, Kostas, and Alex will reach a global audience, with a key focus on media and content creation. The Greek Nigerian basketball star describes the invaluable role his family plays with this new deal. “Candy Funhouse made it very clear how much they value family, which is why this ownership deal is something that I’m very proud to share with mine. There is nothing more important than uplifting each other, and spreading positivity around the world, and there is no better way to do this than through the universal love of candy!”
