Roberto Santiago

Roberto Santiago is an ambitious entrepreneur, responsible for designing two of the largest shopping centers in Joao Pessoa: Manaira and Mangabeira Shopping, both of which are great leisure options in the capital.

The Manaira was the first great business of Mr. Santiago. This was a mall which was established in 1989 the month of November and soon fell to the graces of the residents and tourists who visited the area of João Pessoa. The mall is located in the Manaira district, which is why it is smartly named this and is specifically located between the town center and the beaches of the city, convenient for shoppers and consumers. The mall boasts over 280 stores in a total area of 75 thousand square meters. Stores which are included are categorized into adult fashion as well as kid’s fashion stores, sporting goods stores, banks, academies, amusement park, bowling alley, gourmet space, and food court. The mall also has an impressive concert hall.

The mall also has a highly popular movie theater and a place called the Game Station. The game station contains high-quality audio and video equipment, with over ten air-conditioned rooms. In reality, the Game Station is actually an amusement park that has over 200 machines for each and every gamer out there. It also includes an electronic bowling alley as well as a ballroom. The Domus Concert hall venue at the mall contains air conditioning and can seat about 4,000 people, with more than 10,000 people standing. It contains high-quality sound equipment, including VIP spaces. Many musicians and theatre performers perform here at this venue.

While the Mangabeira Shopping Center is the second most important shopping area in the area of Joao Pessoa. It contains both modern as well as Cosmopolitan-like architecture. It was established in November of the year 2014 and led to many new jobs in the area, not to mention a new place for recreation and rest for consumers or passers-by.

After the shopping mall first opened, it had more than half a million new customers/consumers, causing the store owners and job seekers to have a very positive outlook on the new shopping mall. This shopping mall boasts some of the highest consumers in the area. The mall is said to have helped transform the are of Mangabeira. Where there were once only houses, there is now many city center residential buildings, and many new shops that continue to grow around the shopping mall. All this helped contribute to the development of the area and helped it to grow.

Roberto Santiago, the man who started this mall, got his start at a cafe, namely: Café Santa Rosa, but then started his own carton company, and then got the idea for these malls.

 

CEO Mina Ebrahimi; Scaling the Heights of Catering with Saint Germain cafe

A catering business might be very successful, fulfilling and rewarding at the same time. While running this business, you will be able to indulge your love and passion for food in respect to meeting people. If you are such an individual and have been wondering how to start your catering business, then Mina Ebrahimi’s story should encourage you to begin.

Delving into Work

Mina Ebrahimi started working at a very tender age. Since she had this undying passion for making different dishes at home, he joined his parents in their bakery, located in Seven Corners just at eleven years. Watching her parents bake and sell their cakes to different clients was really inspiring. She thought to herself that perhaps that was the best thing that could happen to anyone in the name of a client. I mean, baking a cake would be rather hectic for an individual especially when he or she does not have professional qualifications.

Service to Clients

For Mina Ebrahimi, serving these clients meant saving their time alongside earning money on the side. That is how she developed her hospitality expertise and started serving thousands of clients at the same bakery. With time, her parents found it necessary to change the company name from Tyson’s Galleria into Saint Germain Cafe.

Owning Saint Germain

As of now, Saint Germain Catering is a leading woman-owned company for catering business. Every day, it serves more than 7,000 clients in about 200 events across Washington, DC, Virginia as well as Maryland.

Serving Friends and Family

For Mina, nothing beats the feeling of reaching out to the society by sharing her cooking skills and feeding masses from it. While her favourite meal is BBQ, she enjoys every other meal that she has made. This is because she must be able to produce exactly what a client needs and the only way through which she can establish this is by tasting the particular food.

Philanthropy

Besides catering, Mina Ebrahimi loves people. Therefore, as a philanthropist, she strives to connect with the less fortunate through her cooking as well. For instance, she sponsors McBaine, a major cancer detection dog that works with Penn Vet Working Dog Unit and helps in making early cancer detection.
