She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Appleton Burger” chain) in Ottawa, a Football Team (the “Mississauga Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderappleton - Canada), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Natalie) and a fashion line called “Natalie Appleton Seduction”.
