He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Del Toro Burger” chain) in Madrid, a Football Team (the “San Juan Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdel Toro - Spain), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Benicio) and a fashion line called “Benicio del Toro Seduction”.
