WHY HOKULIA…

This is a business opportunity that is as remarkable as Hokulia’s shave ice taste! If you qualify to become a Hokulia franchisee we will help you become a successful and happy entrepreneur with a great product, low investment, superior return on that investment; PLUS the opportunity to work in a fun, people-pleasing environment that makes customers’ wishes come true while making your own dreams a reality! These are the qualities that make the Hokulia business opportunity, like our amazing products, irresistible.

THE PRODUCT…

Hokulia shave ice is an ice-based dessert made by shaving a block of ice, adding our own delicious flavors and a scoop of Utah’s own Farr’s ice cream. Top that with a “white cap” (condensed milk) and you’re in Hawaiian heaven! Even though it is made with shaved ice, it is called “shave ice”, not “shaved ice” by Hawaiians. Why shave instead of crushed ice? Shaving produces a very fine ice that appears snow-like. This extremely fine texture allows syrups that are added to it to be absorbed by the ice rather than simply surrounding it. The combination of our perfect shave ice (there’s magic in our ice!) and our proprietary flavors with a scoop of our award winning ice cream sets us apart. Hokulia has its own magical taste – in fact, it’s all about the amazing HOKULIA TASTE!

EXPERIENCE AND FINANCIAL STRENGTH…

You will be working with a company that brings you the most authentic Hawaiian Shave Ice product on the mainland. Since Hokulia Shave Ice has been in operation, our sales have skyrocketed each and every year. In addition, we are backed by the Farr’s Ice Cream Company. Farr’s has been a leader in the Ice and Ice Cream industry for more than 90 years. They are a company with the experience, expertise and most importantly the financial strength that will help you to reach your financial dreams and earn your just desserts (pun intended).

THE MAGIC…

We call it “Oceans of Fun” with “Waves of Flavor” to be in one of our Hokulia shacks watching the smiles on our customers’ faces and seeing the eyes of our young customers open wide and light up when we hand them their tasty Hokulia treat! You can see kids bouncing from their cars to our shack, and they aren’t alone. Hokulia appeals to all ages, because it’s a feel-good treat in a colorful, inviting environment that’s also a great social gathering place for family and friends.

THE SUPPORT…

You will be in business for yourself, but not by yourself. With Hokulia, you enjoy both. Our team has over 90 years of experience in the franchising industry. From leasing and site selection, to experience in multi-shack management, in-shack training and financial guidance, you can be confident we’ll be helping you every step of the way to get your store open.

THE EASE…

Our operating platform, shack size, ease of menu preparation and ordering of product, coupled with thorough training at the Hokulia corporate office and at a Hokulia store means you’re ready to go the minute you first open your shack! Hokulia has a proven formula for success, both operationally and, of course, financially.

THE FUN…

Seeing those smiling customers’ faces, watching them as they enjoy the remarkable taste of our Hokulia treats, and bringing some of the magic of Hawaii to your town and your residents is fun and satisfying; but so is making a great return on your investment, building a business the Hokulia way and enjoying the rewards of your Hokulia desserts!
