The food is mainly prepared in our facilities on-site at the locations by professional staff. Where this is not possible, food products are prepared in our own central kitchen located in Pakkala, Vantaa.
We operate in approximately 500 locations all over Helsinki. We offer 100,000 meals in Helsinki every day and also provide cleaning services.
