Why Start A Blog?
Hi! Welcome to the Mochikva Blog, here you will find out more about us and our mission, our hopes and dreams for the business and how we want to help the community plus fun ideas and tips to help you enjoy the most out of our mochi! It is important for us as a business to always be transparent with our customers, we want you to know exactly our agenda and for there to be no confusion on the things we pride ourselves on.
So Who Are We?
Well if you've gotten to this point then you've probably already read our "about" page. If you have go ahead and skip over this because it will just be copy and pasted, nobodies got time read a reworded rendition of the same thing 5 times and neither do we and neither do you! If you haven't read our "about" page so please enjoy getting to know us!
Sara Hope founded Mochikva in 2018, just one year after making aliyah (without knowing it!) With no real experience in starting a business she jumped head first into this initiative and ran with it. Understanding that there was a demand for mochi in Israel but no real supplier, she decided she could do it, and so she did. Wanting to bring through the idea of hope she came up with the name Mochikva - Mochi + Tikva.
After 8 years of working with people with disabilities, Sara decided that whatever career she pursued she had to be able to help people through it. This is why giving to charities and being kind is a main aspect of the business.
Started in the heart of Tel Aviv in 2018 by a 21-year-old Olah Chadasha from California, Mochikva is where the Far East meets Middle East. Using only premium gluten free and vegan ingredients sourced from local vendors within Tel Aviv, we strive to bring high-quality Japanese confections to the ever-changing Tel Aviv foodie scene. Our recipes harmoniously blend popular traditional Japanese flavors with those loved by Israelis to appeal to even the pickiest palates.
We have chosen to write in enlgish because we are still learning hebrew so bear with us bevakasha ve toda :) Hebrew posts will come soon. O anachnu yecholim medebreem b'eevreet b'anglit, אור ין ינגליש ין היברו
But also, no because that hurts our brains.
How Can You Play A Role?
Our main goal is to get our community involved in giving back and passing on the good fortune, we want you to help guide us in all our decisions whether its changing the flavors, deciding on the charity theme of the month, or any updates we may have!
