OUR STORY

Mint is a destination for delicious, fresh and healthy Israeli food. We serve thoughtfully prepared creative dishes in a casual and fun setting at affordable prices.

Our food represents a melting pot of Jewish and Arab cultures and we deliver bold and surprising flavors that are always fresh, bright, and colorful.

FOOD ETHOS

At Mint, we use fresh, high-quality ingredients that are carefully sourced, minimally processed and creatively served.

Our modern food is familiar but new, simple but provocative, modest but cheeky. It's delicious AND It's healthy.

FOOD WITH PURPOSE

Mint is not only about food. It's also about purpose. We are building a company that has a fundamental commitment to the communities which it serves.

 

Deeply embedded into our business model are the following commitments:

  • Promote healthy eating - offer affordable healthy options for all.

  • Feed out communities - for every 10 meals we sell, we feed a family in need.

  • Reward our team - Every full-time team member has the opportunity to own shares in Mint.

  • Protect our planet - We make it a priority to reduce our ecological footprint.
