All of us here at Asian Mint know Nikky Phinyawatana as our co-founder, co-owner, and creative head chef. She gives us the unbelievable yummy recipes that makes Asian Mint the restaurant it is today. But, there is more about Nikky that you may not know and we would like to take moment to share a little about why our love for her goes beyond food. Keep reading for a special announcement!
Since Nikky opened the first Asian Mint doors her focus has always been about community. If you follow our blog regularly, you will see that philanthropy is a true passion for Nikky. It is important to her that these ideals are also carried out in her business. Asian Mint is a part of fundraising events throughout our Dallas community all year round. Through her dedication to charity Asian Mint has been able to donate to over 100 different charities, schools, and non-profit organizations (To see a full list of donations, please visit the giving section of our website.) Furthermore, Asian Mint does not take a tax write-off for these donations because Nikky believes that a business can be profitable and charitable at the same time. We couldn’t have this mindset or success without Nikky at the forefront making our community a better place.
