Starting St. Germaine catering company
Mina Ebrahimi nurtured her cooking passion while working at her family-owned bakery business. She would, however, leave the family business in 1998 and dip her feet into the catering world. She started off by supplying homemade and packed lunch to busy executives and other professionals to their workplace. The business did quite well that she decided to open a new larger leaf by providing catering service to corporate meetings, luncheons, and any other business events.
Her outgoing personality, strong business skills and knowledge of the different cuisines consumed in the country played a key role in the fast expansion of her business. She, therefore, sought out more business opportunities and customizes products of their liking. In a few years, she merged the corporate and social world and was now providing catering services to both the business-related events as well as weddings, birthdays and related social gatherings.
In the less than two decades that St. Germaine catering company has been in operation, it has managed to surpass existing food companies in terms of operations and quality of food. It has also flourished into becoming a market leader in the hospitality industry. Year after year, Mina’s catering company has emerged the top caterer in North Virginia. It has also broadened operations and capacity to ensure that it can host any type of event regardless of the number of attendees or their food requirements.
