Tillypad was founded in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 1995 when a group of young, talented specialists in the fields of software development, engineering, marketing and the hospitality trade came together to create a product that would satisfy current market requirements and become an indispensable tool for handling the fundamental business processes of restaurants, cafes, fast food outlets and the like.
The Tillypad hospitality management system was launched in 1997 with revolutionary capabilities that enabled full control of restaurant operations.
The new system quickly achieved popularity in restaurants throughout Russia and the CIS. The company’s first international dealers appeared, promoting Tillypad abroad. Their numbers quickly increased and are still growing steadily to this day.
Envisaging a massive increase in the number of chains being opened, the company set about developing Tillypad XL, a radically new system that would enable efficient management of restaurant chains.
The endeavour paid off in 2007 when the first ever commercial installation of Tillypad XL was carried out in the largest Japanese restaurant chain in St. Petersburg. The resounding success of this and subsequent installations confirmed that all targets had been achieved or exceeded, and in 2008 Tillypad XL was released on the general market.
Today more than 8000 restaurants in Europe and Russia trust their business to Tillypad. The company is represented by a network of more than 90 dealers across Russia, the CIS and Europe, providing installation, maintenance and support of Tillypad XL.
Our strategy of continuous improvement and dedicated commitment to exceed all industry standards makes Tillypad XL a sound investment for any business in the hospitality sector.
