MEET MELINDA HOPKINS

Melinda Hopkins is a student of the arts. Immersing herself at an early age in dance that launched her early career path in choreography and theater. It was her love for the community that  led her to create the non-profit theater company, Mystic Vision Players, in Linden, NJ. As Melinda established and expanded Mystic Vision Players, her ability to lead the operations and manage theater events excelled. Once the seeds were planted, Melinda found herself drawn to production, showcasing her creativity and design capabilities.

In addition to launching the theater, life’s journey led her to taking on the responsibilities of Creative Director for the family landscape and design company. In this role, she would learn to build customer relations and communication skills that led to a future in the floral industry. As Melinda’s career evolved, she leaned on her many skills to flourish as the Director of Events and Hospitality for one of the largest farm venues in New Jersey. Here she would put her education and experiences to the test, enabling her to simultaneously manage 8-12 events each weekend. Her attention to detail and desire to thrill the customer, led to a following of many long-term relationships and a significant customer following.  It would be a dinner sponsored by BEX that would bring Becky and Melinda’s creative energy together and launch a new partnership called BEX.

Adorable local eatery!

Great selection of wholesome, delicious food, with a surprising number of gluten-free options including sandwiches and salad. My turkey, Brie, and apricot chutney sandwich was amazing. Service was friendly, welcoming and efficient. I’m looking forward to a return visit!
