"One afternoon in April 1964, Ms. Fehr went to the Annapolis Delicatessen, located in the Manger Annapolis Hotel on 11th Street NW, Washington DC, to buy three sausages for dinner. She came home with two sausages and a Delicatessen. Mrs. Mary Faiss, who started the store in 1932, was close to a nervous breakdown, caused by continuously receiving wrong or partially filled shipments. When she saw Ms. Fehr, she told her “you can have the store, I cannot take it anymore, give me a down payment, so I will not change my mind tomorrow.” On scrap paper, she acknowledged to have received $1.76 toward the purchase of Annapolis Delicatessen and she wanted the rest of the down payment the next day. A week later Hildegard and Max Fehr took over the store. In 1970 the name was changed to German Deli. The Café Mozart is just right the way it turned out and is ready for the next Generation, which will be the over 30-year employee and partner Farooq and his son Farhan Ahmad."
