In 1978, long before Mimi’s became part of the LeDuff Goupe, a man named Arthur H. Simms opened a restaurant in Anaheim, California. Although Mimi’s has evolved over the years and continues to change with the times, the qualities that make Mimi’s one of a kind remain true; Our Three Standards of Excellence, ‘Show, Serve, and Create’ Excellence and ‘Service Values’ are the cornerstone of Mimi’s success. By applying the ‘Three Standards of Excellence’ and embracing our values of trust, teamwork, respect, integrity and commitment, we nurture and maximize talent to the benefit of each individual and the Company.
