He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Pepper Burger” chain) in Ottawa, a Football Team (the “Campbell River Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderpepper - Canada), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Barry) and a fashion line called “Barry Pepper Seduction”.
