Customer feedback

What do our customers say about us?

We have treated our staff to a Christmas lunch whipped up by Pekka and his associates for several years, and we have savoured their offerings on other occasions, too. Genuinely warm and professional service combined with great food. What more would you need?

Our association of entrepreneurs has relied on the Tolppa couple’s professional skills and service for years when organising Entrepreneur of the Year events. We have organised these events for several hundred people in many Tolppa event venues and everything has always gone perfectly. This really is service that you can feel!

Kangasalan Sanomat invited their readers and friends to a summer gathering to commemorate the newspaper turning 90. Coffee service was promised for 500 people; over 1000 arrived! For Pekka Tolppa and his staff, however, this was a piece of cake. In the end, they managed to serve everyone coffee and everyone left feeling happy.

Where we come from

Our story

Heini Patokallio and Pekka Tolppa locked eyes in 1988 – where else but at the same workplace, Fransmanni restaurant in Tampere.

The future entrepreneurs tied the knot in 1990.
Their daughter was born in 1992 and Tolppa Ravintolat Oy in 1998.

Their 20 years of entrepreneurship has seen
many kitchens and restaurants.

For the first three years, the Tolppa couple ran
the restaurant services of Hotel Liera in Ruovesi.

They continued on to Kangasala in 2002,
when they took over the restaurant services of the automobile and
road museum Mobilia on the beautiful shores of Lake Längelmävesi.

Intermission catering for the summer theatre
next door was one of their services.
