It’s no secret that Mark Wahlberg has made himself quite a bit of money during his highly successful acting career. However, his fortunes haven’t all come from his movies and TV shows, as Wahlberg has actually been involved in a number of different ventures over the years.
Some of the businesses that he’s involved with include his movie production company, health and wellness company, water line, and even the Wahlburgers restaurant chain. Even with all this going on, he still constantly searches for new opportunities. Back in 2018, he jumped into another industry, when he purchased his own Chevy dealership simply called Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet.

Now, Wahlberg didn’t go in on this alone. He had his business partner Jay Feldman by his side. Jay has owned multiple car dealerships and has seen great success at those locations, and also in the car business as a whole. Together, they took over what was formerly known as Bobby Layman Chevrolet.
