Owned by Oneka Samet, 35, this true blue otaku really knows her stuff when she opened Chou Anime Cafe. After a visit to Japan that ultimately changed her life, Chou Anime Cafe was born in her hometown of Detroit. “They’re cute and girly and frilly, more like baby doll dresses as opposed to sexualized,” Samet said on the intention of the maid costumes. Joe Samet, Oneka’s partner in running the business, takes charge of the bookkeeping. “But this is really her thing.” Joe said.
Maid Cafes are small restaurants staffed by young girls dressed up in maid costumes. Maid Cafe patrons or customers are then treated as the masters or mistresses of the “house”. Although maid cafes are rampant in Japan, it has become a popular choice of franchise all over the world and Chou Anime Cafe is just one of the maid cafes found worldwide.
