She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Plimpton Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderplimpton - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Martha) and a fashion line called “Martha Plimpton Seduction”.
