He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Coster-Waldau Burger” chain) in Copenhagen, a Football Team (the “Rudkøbing Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercoster-Waldau - Denmark), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Nikolaj) and a fashion line called “Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Seduction”.
