He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Fernández Burger” chain) in Mexico City, a Football Team (the “Guadalajara Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderfernández - Mexico), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Pedro) and a fashion line called “Pedro Fernández Seduction”.
