Owning one of Dallas’ most popular restaurants should be enough to keep Asian Mint’s Nikky Phinyawatana busy. This well-loved Asian fusion restaurant recently celebrated an expansion of their space that allows diners who come for lunch, on the weekends, and for private meetings a new way to experience the space. But Nikky doesn’t stop there.
Already a busy entrepreneur herself, Nikky is active when it comes to sharing her talents and experience with the greater community.
To contribute to the health of Dallas’ future generations, Asian Mint is a participating member of Medical City Dallas’ Hospital Kids’ Fit Program. This program turns recipes on the program’s website into nutritious meals with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables.
Asian Mint has also donated over $1,000 to the Texas Restaurant Association to support local kids going into the restaurant business.
To create a future of a healthier Dallas, Asian Mint looks to its own operations by striving to conserve water with the Save Dallas Water Program. They are part of the program’s Dallas Hospitality Industry Program, which promotes water conservation in hospitality establishments.
Last week marked Asian Mint’s event benefiting Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center. The center “seeks to improve the lives of abused children in the Dallas, Texas area and to provide national leadership on child abuse issues.”
Also last week, Nikky Phinyawatana announced free brunch for active Dallas police officers on weekends in July. Along with that amazing contribution, 30% off meals for active Dallas police officers are offered indefinitely.
Nikky is not shy about expressing her passion for entrepreneurship. The breadth of Nikky’s experience will make her a compelling speaker at this year’s Women’s Leadership Live Conference in Salt Lake City, where she’ll share her perspective as a woman in business.
Nikky’s influence spins her original take on Thai cuisine to the great community of Dallas and to women entrepreneurs around the country.
