Robert De Niro

No stranger to the restaurant business, Robert De Niro co-owns two food franchises that have grown to include restaurants all over the world. His upscale sushi restaurant, Nobu, now boasts 24 locations ranging everywhere from Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Cape Town. The restaurant is estimated to be worth $250 million, with the actor taking in about 30 percent of the profits. De Niro is also part owner of Ago, a ritzy Italian café that first opened up in Los Angeles but has since made its way across the country, popping up in New York City, Miami and Las Vegas.
