Starbucks Coffee Croatian Style

German-Croatian entrepreneur Chris Tomic, who is credited with creating the first logos and ringtones for mobile handsets, has embarked on a new challenge in Croatia, opening up a chain of coffee shops and restaurants under the brand DayCafe which he says will be the “Croatian Starbucks”.

Tomic, who has invested in various real estate projects over the last decade in Croatia, says his concept will be simple – serve good food and even better coffee. Tomic is set to open two more stores in Croatia’s capital Zagreb, with the focus being on takeout food and coffee.

Speaking to daily Croatian newspaper Vecernji list, Tomic made it clear as to why he chose Croatia as the destination for his new venture. “There is more potential here than in Germany or Spain. Everything I have done here has worked. My parents are from Croatia and I always spent my holidays on the coast. For me here is the nicest and that is why I want to invest here.”
