In 1704, the Armenian Georgius Damascenus founded the first Czech coffee lounge named “The Golden Snake” in Prague. Three hundred years later, in 2003, the Armenian Gevorg Avetisyan and his sister established the MARLENKA®, making honey cakes according to an old Armenian family recipe. The first cakes were baked just for their friends, and they later offered them to local coffee shops. But this honey pleasure quickly gained great popularity. The fragrant, sweet and smooth cake was given its beautiful name after the owner´s mother and daughter – MARLENKA.
Only the best, carefully selected ingredients are used for the production of the honey delicacy. Therefore, MARLENKA® cakes are free from any artificial preservatives and colors and are the only cakes in the Czech Republic to be assigned NATURAL PRODUCT status. MARLENKA® honey cakes are becoming more and more popular among consumers and the production volumes have naturally becomes higher. The initial monthly production was about one hundred pieces; from the end of 2008 the plant has produced over 100,000 baked cakes a month with nearly 200 employees in a non-stop operation.
