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