She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat McGovern Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Evanston Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure WondermcGovern - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Elizabeth) and a fashion line called “Elizabeth McGovern Seduction”.
