Hettich Endorsed Showroom, Mint Kitchen Group won 13 industry awards last year including several impressive titles at the Victorian HIA awards.  

With the HIA Awards, the Mint Kitchen Group takes the total number of accolades up to almost 80 over the past five years.  

Some of the prestigious awards received by Mint include New Kitchen Project ($25-40k), Laundry Project of the Year, Renovated Kitchen Project (Over $40k) and Renovated Bathroom Project (Up to $25k). The group was also named runner up for Kitchen Design of the Year and Renovated Kitchen Project ($25-40k).  

Formed in 2009 by Frank Iaria, Lindsay Williams and Albert Zarb, the Mint Kitchen Group operates showrooms in Burwood, Moonee Ponds, Burnley, Richmond and Carnegie.  

In addition to the HIA awards, the trio has also received a number of commendations from peak industry bodies including the Cabinet Makers Association and KBDi, as well as taking out the Australian Achievers Award for the best customer service for joinery works in Victoria.  

The Mint Group recently partnered with Hettich, one of the world’s largest producers of cabinet hardware and fittings as a Hettich Endorsed Showroom.  

Frank Iaria, owner of the Moonee Ponds and Burnley businesses, attributes their extensive experience in design as one of the key reasons of their success.  

Quality in design and quality of products are key objectives in every project. The designers focus on listening to their customers so that their kitchens can be designed to meet specific, personal requirements.  

The Mint Kitchen Group does not employ sales people. All three partners are professional interior designers or professional kitchen and bathroom designers, who focus on getting the design right for the customer.  

The same passion for quality is the main reason why the company decided to partner with Hettich, whose products offer proven quality. All Hettich Endorsed Showrooms help project owners and their advisors transform kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms from the ordinary to the exceptional by providing all the components of cabinetry hardware.  

Frank won the HIA award for Kitchen Renovation Project over $40k and was also runner up for Kitchen Design of the Year for his own kitchen design and renovation. The renovation provided an opportunity for his family to create their dream space, with the perfect kitchen and space for entertaining.
