Van Vicker is one of the rare African (Ghanaian-Liberian) actors who has dabbled in fields unrelated to acting.
The actor declared in 2021 that he has entered the food and catering industry. He unveiled the Vantasic Grill, a restaurant in Accra, Ghana where he currently lives and works.

The actor discussed the motivation behind his new business in an interview with Phyllis Ntim. Vicker spoke with the head of PN Iridescent, a media company based in the Netherlands, and said, “I wanted to open this restaurant since 2019 but the COVID sort of pushed me more. The idea was I wanted to do more deliveries, and a sit-in”.

The actor revealed that when discussing the name, “I usually would have used the name fantastic … so when it got to the food bit, I asked thought ok, how do I incorporate my name in the business, because I think is something more of who I stand for, what I stand for, my personal brand, how do incorporate my personal brand with the name of the restaurant … so I felt ok Vantatsic should work and then I did add the Grill”.

Van Vicker has vowed to raise Vantastic Grill to a higher level, hence it is now closed for renovations. The actor revealed that expanding is “on the planning board.”

The actor said to Phyllis Ntim, “I would want to expand, currently, in Ghana, I want to do about four other branches then I would see how to step out of Ghana,”

The actor stated in the interview that he hopes to create a branch in Liberia. “Liberia, which I know to be doable because of the terrain,” he said.

For many of you who do not understand the word “terrain” is a word many Liberian used to either say, “my home”, “my area code”, “this is where I am also familiar with”, etc… Vicker has always loved Liberia and bringing Vantastic Grill home is such a wonderful and welcoming idea.
