There are plenty of examples of people who come to the United States in the hope of an American dream. While some of them get very successful, others do quite decent in their lives. It all depends on the kind of hard work and passion you show for your dream to turn it into a reality. Same was the case with Mina Ebrahimi, the founder, and CEO of Saint Germain Catering. She was born to immigrant parents who came to America in 1978 to have a better life for their family. As rightly said, if you are passionate about something, you need to go all out in the land of opportunities and sky would be the limit for your success.
Mina also followed her passion for cooking that she developed at an early age and converted that into a full-time catering business. While she worked at an early age at her parents’ bakery in Virginia, she developed a keen knack of understanding what customers wanted and took it all along the way to shape it into a real-time catering business. Today she employs 32 full-time employees and 8 part-time employees and she strongly believes it is just the beginning. Her business model primarily caters to corporate events, but she also serves her clients at personal events. Whether it is a luncheon, a private party or a grand wedding, she got you covered on all of that.
Because of her mission and vision, she has been conferred with a lot of accolades to her name. Some of them include 2014 Enterprising Women of the Year Award, Winner of SmartCEO’s Brava Awards and Washington Business Journal’s 2010 Top 40 Under 40 Award to name a few. She is a perfect example of a female mentor who believes in the concept of giving back to the community. She is also very philanthropic and has been an advocate of so many non-profit organizations who is working tirelessly to improve the standard of living of the military families. She has also made significant contributions to research in the cancer area that could be beneficial to many people.
