We love books In Apollo. And movies. And music. Not to mention brain games and Estonian designs. In other words, we love cultural entertainment and the development of local creative activities. We also follow these principles when choosing the projects we support.
Our friendly family has almost 200 employees. We like innovation – Apollo was the first company that developed an e-reader in Estonian and started using an ID card as a loyalty card back in 2005. In the 1990s, we were the first company to start using digital stock registers and sales programmes. In the 1980s, we were the first bookstore selling literature to our clients from western countries.
Apollo Cinema with 12 cinema centres is the largest in Baltics, offering quality cinema services in Tallinn: Solaris, Mustamäe, Ülemiste, and Kristiine Centres and Pärnu Centre in Pärnu, Lõunakeskus in Tartu, Astri Centre in Narva, and Auriga Centre in Kuressaare. You can also find us in Pargi Centre in Jõhvi.
KFC, a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM.), is a global chicken restaurant brand with a rich, decades-long history of success and innovation. It all started with one cook, Colonel Harland Sanders, who created a finger lickin’ good recipe more than 80 years ago, a list of secret herbs and spices scratched out on the back of the door to his kitchen. Today we still follow his formula for success, with real cooks breading and freshly preparing our delicious chicken by hand in more than 24,000 restaurants in over 145 countries and territories around the world.
