What they do:
American in Germany selling home-made American cheesecakes, brownies and bagels.

Cynthia Barcomi went to Berlin as a professional dancer. But in the mid 90s she wanted to change direction and pursue her passion for baking. She thought there just might be a niche in Germany for her home-country baked goods.

About the business:
Cafe Barcomi opened in 1994 serving her own New York Cheesecake, brownies, bagels and roasted coffee. She knew Germans loved cake and coffee, so she began advertising Cake and Coffee Sundays, which started to bring in large crowds of people. Today Barcomi is known as Miss American Pie, and has revenues of over $2.5 million.
