About us


Pretendentas UAB was established on 11 February 1998. It started its activity in the wholesale market selling household appliances. After some time the company managed to form a young and progressive team able not only to perform their duties and tasks professionally but to maintain a friendly and positive atmosphere at work and spend their free time joyfully and interestingly. Pretendentas UAB was the first company which introduced an online shop of household appliances in the market (www.naminukas.lt). The company head and the employees are keen on the latest technologies, therefore all managing and accounting information of the company is fully computerised; there has been created a B2B system for work with partners. All this helps the company to maintain good, fast and high quality service.

Naminukas store was founded in Vilnius back in November 2008. The www.sorpreso.com online shop dedicated exclusively to the top quality produce by Swiss company JURA was launched in 2013. And in 2014, a beautiful coffee machine store was opened Klaipėda. In 2017, the company became the official representative of the Swiss coffee machine manufacturer Schaerer in Lithuania and Latvia as well as started offering a broader product range and began selling the produce by the global leading brands such as Miele, Nivona and Siemens. In the same year, the stores had a makeover, changed their name to Sorpreso (in Italian Sorpreso means a surprise) and launched a collection of freshly roasted coffee beans that has received outstanding appreciation from coffee lovers. At the end of 2017, the company opened a Sorpreso store in Alytus and, adjacent to it, founded a state-of-the-art coffee machine service centre which employs some of the most professional coffee machine service engineers in Lithuania.
