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