He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Guillon Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Neuilly-sur-Seine Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderguillon - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Stéphane) and a fashion line called “Stéphane Guillon Seduction”.
