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