Hotel and hospitality management assistant Ana Duarte made her dream come true and opened her own restaurant "Vivarepas" serving Venezuelan dishes.
A year and a half of detailed preparation was necessary to make a successful start. The secret of her success: passion and authenticity and a focus on quality products. “The Pforzheim gastronomic scene was lacking variety and a South American restaurant, so I decided – not least because of my Venezuelan-Portuguese roots – to open such a restaurant with a relaxed, jovial flair and fresh, natural cuisine,” reports the 30-year-old entrepreneur. With unswerving dedication, Ana Duarte worked for a good year and a half on her business start-up until she was finally able to open her Vivarepas in March 2019.
