Hartmanns: With Emigration Barriers
In Vegport, the Hartmans take over Sam and Esther’s coffee shop. But after a few weeks disagreements arose. The fact that the Hartmanns wanted to offer Bavarian specialties was not so well received at the café, which until then had French touches. The turnover was good, but perhaps it was a thorn in the side for both owners, as within a few weeks the Hartmans almost exceeded the café operators’ annual turnover. “Everything had to be French, we weren’t allowed to do anything, we were controlled. We were exposed to constant control,” Hartman described his time working with Sam. He really wanted to leave the cafe in good hands – but it seems these hands were too good for him.
