Our Client Testimonials

”Olemme tehneet Tarinapadan kanssa yhteistyötä jo lähes kymmenen vuoden ajan. Toimimme itse toimistokiinteistöjen kehityksen parissa ja Tarinapadan asiantuntemus erilaisten ravintolakonseptien ja -tilojen kehitystyön sekä esimerkiksi keittiölaitehankintojen saralla on ollut meille erittäin arvokasta.

Yhteistyömme on aina ollut suoraviivaista ja tehokasta. Meillä on hyvä keskinäinen luottamus ja vahva yhteinen näkemys tekemisen tavoitteista. Tarinapadan sitoutuminen erilaisiin hankkeisiin ja kyky ymmärtää loppuasiakkaan tarpeita ovat olleet juuri sitä mitä me kumppaniltamme edellytämme.”

“We have worked in collaboration with Tarinapata for almost ten years. Our business revolves around developing commercial real estate and Tarinapata’s expertise in developing different restaurant concepts and spaces has been extremely valuable to us as we grow our business.

Our partnership has always been straightforward and effective. We have a relationship based on mutual trust and respect and a shared vision on the end-product. Tarinapata’s commitment to various projects and their ability to understand the needs of the end-user is just the kind of quality service we have come to expect from our partners.”
