A technologist with 4 successful start-ups under his belt, Oren Dobronsky was drawn to the Silicon Valley, the epicenter of today’s technological innovations. Life was good in the valley, but one thing was missing: A big plate of creamy Hummus – with fresh pita & mediterranean salads – just like back home in Tel Aviv.
A true entrepreneur, Oren decided to take matters into his own hands. With the help of his wife Nancy, an experienced restaurateur, the couple opened Oren’s Hummus, an authentic Israeli restaurant.
With the success of the first location Oren and Nancy decided that the lively casual concept should be expanded. They formed a partnership with longtime restaurant consultant Mistie Cohen and her husband and chef, David. Together the two couples have grown the little shop on University Avenue in Palo Alto into a Bay Area favorite – complete with catering company, a packaged food line and of course, more restaurants.
