Mina Ebrahimi has had great success since she ventured into the catering business. She established Saint Germain Catering back in 1998 to provide services to the VA market. The firm has since become a prominent feature in weddings and special events. It prides itself in a dynamic client base across Virginia, Maryland, and Washington.
Her parents were immigrants who owned a bakery in Seven Corners. It was here that she learned her trade and developed a passion for cooking at a tender age. When they rebranded as Saint Germain Cafe, Mina Ebrahimi became responsible for the smooth running of the day-to-day activities of the business. She had set her sights on higher things and thus opted to start Saint Germain Catering.
Mina Ebrahimi established the firm from scratch, and it now caters for close to 1000 events every week. Efficiency in service delivery has ensured that their clients keep coming back for more. They also provide a flexible menu that seeks to cater to the needs of their diverse clients.
She attributes much of her success to the amazing employees that have worked for her over the years. Mina Ebrahimi made a point of treating them in a dignified way, and the results were tremendous. Everyone who has had an opportunity to work alongside her has given their best knowing that their efforts are well appreciated.
Her success in the business world has not gone unnoticed. The Smart CEO’s Brava Award is one of the many accolades she has received throughout her illustrious career. Mina Ebrahimi has extended her support to non-profit organizations with the intention of giving back to the society.
The 25th Project that takes care of the homeless, and Operation Homefront DC for military families are some of the beneficiaries of her philanthropic work. Mina Ebrahimi also set up the Jack-Ebrahimi and Mina Ebrahimi foundations to lend a hand to different causes.
For close to four years now, she has also given considerably towards finding a solution to breast cancer. Mina Ebrahimi has successfully raised funds for cancer research through a cupcake program. The inspiration for this charity work came from a visit to Upenn Vet. Their lead oncologist, Dr. Karin Sorenmo, attended to her pet and Mina Ebrahimi saw the need to finance breast cancer research projects
