Maria Duness-Rose: "I'm a good host."
Welcoming guests and making them feel at home is a tradition in Maria Duness-Rose's Bulgarian family.

Maria Duness-Rose

As a child, she watched her mother and grandmother master the skill and on top of that, Maria Duness-Rose's grandfather operates a successful restaurant in her hometown of Sofia. She has clearly inherited her family's talents. The marketing expert first visited Berlin in 1991, and she was immediately impressed. Later on, back in Bulgaria, she met a German and fell in love. That made it a relatively easy choice for her to move to Germany.

PriMaria is her second successful restaurant venture; her first was successfully in business for seven years before the lease was cancelled. She needed to move and started PriMaria anew in the Berlin neighborhood of Friedrichshain.
