B.J. Penn to open new Poi business

B.J. Penn to open new Poi business


According to records from the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs in Hawaii, UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn is opening a business called Ono Poi Co. LLC.

The new business lists Penn’s legal name, Jay Dee Penn, with an address for Hilo-based Polynesian Management Corp., a business-management consulting firm.

Poi is a Hawaiian dish made from the fermented root of the taro, which has been baked and pounded to a paste.

It seems Penn is a huge fan of the dish, often posting about it on social media.
