Mark Wahlberg Expands Dealership Business With Buick-GMC Store

It’s across the street from the Chevy dealership he owns.

Over the last few years, Mark Wahlberg has expanded his resume from actor to businessman. He has Wahlburgers, a string of casual burger joints and bars, works with a health and wellness company, and owns a Chevy dealership in Columbus, Ohio. Today, his business empire is expanding with another dealership purchase – a Buick-GMC operation right across the street from his Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet shop, according to Automotive News.

Wahlberg’s expanding business operations also include an Airstream and RV dealership in the same city. It’s been renamed as Mark Wahlberg Airstream & RV, and we’re sorry if you were expecting a different name. If Wahlberg’s new purchases are like his Chevy dealership, there’ll likely be a large “W” logo, the same signature signage on his restaurants, letting the world know who owns it.
