Our Reviews


Mint Security is Excellent! I work at Market and 6th. Johnny’s crew create a safe shopping atmosphere for our customers. They handle all difficult situations in a professional manner. Unlike the 4 previous companies we had to let go, Mint Security proves their value everyday in a challenging neighborhood. Thanks Johnny!

I feel so fortunate that we met Johnny and his team over a year ago. The quality of work, the professional demeanor at all times, attention to detail, genuine care and courtesy is just a few of this team’s attributes. Ever since we started working with Mint security and they took over covering the over night shifts at the Nob Hill Inn , I have had peace of mind. These guys are amazing. The guests and the staff are extremely happy with their service and care. Johnny is hands on and takes pride in his work. His staff are picked from the best and are trained extensively. As you can see I can’t say enough good things about Mint Security team and Johnny. I strongly recommend these guys.

We hired Mint Security to watch over a sensitive money handling operation and to provide a secure escort service to a financial institution. The guard that Mint Security provided us with was prompt, courteous, and professional. We will definitely hire security personnel from this company again in the future.

We needed a security guard at the last minute for a production shoot in Oakland, and Johnny was extremely responsive and accommodating. Our guard Geoffrey was amazing! He was on time, very professional, and very easy to work with. Will definitely use Mint again if we ever need security in the bay area.

I have hired security from Mint Security for a business location. I found this to be the perfect company to work with. Due to the industry I work in I have to be very selective about my staff. At my business the security is the first impression and interaction my customers have and that is important to me. My customers have gone out of their way to let me know what a nice and polite security team I have. At the same time they keep my business secure and safe! Any situations I may have are dealt with the highest of professionalism. I have referred Mint Security to other businesses and would recommend them to anyone looking for a tight, well trained security team. I’ve worked with other security companies and have found this one to be the most reliable and consistent with a staff that is above all others. Thank you Mint Security for keeping my staff and business safe and my customers secure and smiling!

I recently attended a fundraiser event at a high end hotel in San Francisco. The event was crowded with young people who were enjoying the open bar and DJ. I, unfortunately, though I had my purse and jacket stolen and quickly spoke with one of the security guys, who immediately contacted the rest of security and the event organizer, and developed a strategy for resolving the situation. Within twenty minutes they had calmly and efficiently helped me to locate my purse, which I had been picked up and moved by an event attendee who thought it was hers. I was just so impressed with how kind they were to me and how calm they kept me while quickly jumping into action. Usually I find event security to be jaded and dismissive but these guys were a well trained team. The event was a success because of them!
