Gerkules,a Kaliningrad's holding company combining eight different venues, has been working with Tillypad for eight years. This restaurant group contains a large and one of the city's most popular European cuisine restaurants with its own brewery (Gerkules), several pizzerias and trattorias, and a hotel restaurant. Two of eight venues of the restaurant chain are located outside of the city, in Zelenogradsk and Chernyakhovsk.
InFebruary, a new restaurant, Rodnya ('Kinfolk' in Russian), opened on the main pedestrian street of Chelyabinsk. It has an unusual concept: their official legend says that all employees are relatives, and instead of the usual discount cards, customers receive a 'kin card'. Guests are promised a warm welcome from the hostess, hearty servings carefully prepared by the Russian and Georgian chefs and a heartwarming ambience that reminds one of good family traditions.
