Yücel Yondemir has made it: he has built up a chain of eight tailoring alteration shops. And he adds a new one every year. The beginnings in Germany were tough: Yondemir‘s mother arrived from Anatolia 40 years ago. She sorted offal in a poultry factory. Her son Yücel worked his way up without any special education: from crane operator to bus-driver, from bus-driver to businessman. His daughter Yasmin looks after his office today.
