Mallori Hanes and her twin brothers, Tyler and Trevor, now run Patina Green with some help from the youngest sibling, Mason.
The Hanes siblings grew up in McKinney and the three older siblings graduated from McKinney Boyd High School. Trevor and Tyler attended culinary school while Mallori graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a major in entrepreneurship.
“We always dreamed of owning a business in this city, and now it’s like a dream come true,” Mallori said.
The twins originally owned a food truck, but when the opportunity arose to invest in the restaurant, it made sense as the next step.
Mallori handles all the front-of-house retail side, sourcing and working with local suppliers across North Texas.
“I enjoy being the creative outlet in the business, [and] meeting suppliers and our customers, while immersing myself in the community,” she said. “As qualified chefs, my brothers are super creative in the kitchen and run the food menu and produce requirements.”
While the sandwich menu includes staples of ham, turkey and roast beef, the added ingredients are rotated, often based on and inspired by seasonal product options. One of Patina Green’s sandwiches, the ham sandwich, was voted Best in Texas by the Food Network.
On the retail side, the family enjoys supporting local entrepreneurs. For example, a woman in Dallas supplies the collection of handmade soaps and candles. Another woman provides a product called Mixies, a basic cocktail infusion kit.
Future plans include a patio makeover to provide more seating.
“[We] are constantly changing the menu and product lines to evolve with the seasons while embracing a passion to support local and make delicious food,” Mallori said.
