The Summer Entrepreneurs organise café activities from 5 June to 13 August at the Rauma Water Tower at Vesitornintie 2. The café is open every day from 12-18.The opening ceremony will be on Monday 5 June from 12 noon.
– The current operator’s lease on the premises expires on 31 May. The Water Tower is one of the city’s most important tourist attractions and we want to keep it open this summer. We found quick help from summer entrepreneurs, who were eager to get involved, Jukka Vastamäki, Rauma Vesi’s Director of Public Works says.
Involving young people and promoting summer job opportunities are linked to the city’s strategy. In addition to their business activities, the summer entrepreneurs also complete their studies in entrepreneurship and food production.
The café is run by WinNova’s food industry students, summer entrepreneurs Kiia Kalliokari, Karoliina Kuusisto, Lilli Jalonen, Noora Stenholm and Essi Hannukainen from Rauma Lyseo high school. You can follow Tornikahvila’s news on Instagram @tornikahvila.
