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