He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Isaak Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Stockton Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderisaak - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Chris) and a fashion line called “Chris Isaak Seduction”.
