Hawełka was the founder of a well-known restaurant Pod Palmą (Under the Palm) on the Main Market Square in Kraków. He opened a colonial store first in 1876, at Rynek 46, and than moved to Krzysztofory Palace at Rynek 35 in order to expand his business, and added a restaurant to his already popular venue. Hawełka traded in the region, and outside of it as well. For his services he was given an imperial warrant and became a purveyor to the imperial court in Vienna.
