SERVING UP THE ALOHA SPiriT HAS CUSTOMERs COMING BACK IN WAVES

This was my first time trying Hawaiian Bros and I was blown away by the experience! The place was very clean, the food was out of this world and I thought it was a very nice touch that somebody from the counter actually came out and made the effort to ask us how our experience was. I will definitely be back, and I highly recommend this if you’re looking for the alternative to fast food.

YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT. I came in not really knowing what to expect. I was greeted and guided and was also given a sample of their dairy free, gluten free, pineapple mango soft serve. It was amazing! Then my order arrived. My taste buds went to Hawaiian Heaven. This was the perfect meal; the portion was very generous. The deliciousness and portions make it well worth your money. Sweet, savory, fresh, well-seasoned.

The place is never a disappointment. Faster than fast food, and reasonably priced. Consistently great! The friendliest staff in town, with the cleanest facility. My only problem with the place, is trying to choose which dish to get. I’ve tried everything on the menu, and it is all very delicious. If you’re reading this because you’re wondering if you should try it. Yes. Absolutely do it!

For me this place was a surprise! It takes me back to my childhood when my Mother made my favorite dish, Hawaiian Meatballs! The flavor was great and the chicken was tender. Get the teriyaki sauce and add to the fluffy soft rice. It makes for a great mix. Also get a side of pineapple. It was fresh and full of sweetness! Finished off with some Pineapple soft serve. It wasn’t over the top and was similar to a sherbet. I enjoyed it! I hope they open more of these in the OKC area. I will definitely be back.

This is hands down the best, quick food I’ve had in a while! It’s fast food, but obviously cooked with so much love! Service was amazingly quick with very friendly staff checking on us to make sure we had absolutely everything we needed. The pineapple and strawberry soft serve alone is worth the trip! Love love love!!!

What differentiates us makes us an excellent investment

NO FREEZERS
NO FRYERS
NO MICROWAVES

The Hawaiian Bros menu adheres to a simple principle:
do few things, but do them extremely well. Our food is unique and delicious – this isn’t another burger or fried chicken joint – we’re talking craveable, island-inspired flavors served with a side of Aloha Spirit.

WE MEASURE SUCCESS IN SECONDS, NOT MINUTES

We’re uniquely positioned between QSR and Fast Casual, giving customers the speed, drive-thru capability and consistency of a QSR, and the food quality, culture, vibe and service of a Fast Casual.

Our drive-thrus operate in seconds. We’re talking 30 seconds at the window on average, 74% of the time. How do we do it? From 2 order points, to virtual ordering, we’re optimized for customer volume and speed. We’re giving customers the confidence that will keep them coming back for the reliable service they can’t find anywhere else.

MULTI-CHANNEL EFFICIENCY

Our kitchens are designed with production lines to serve every sales channel–DSP, carry out, drive-thru, and dine-in.  At curbside, we opt for fewer dedicated parking spaces and quicker to-car times.  As a result, we aim to turn our spots in less than 60 seconds.  Our new building prototype includes a DSP-dedicated drive-thru lane.

Dine-In picture1

Keeping It Simple

At Hawaiian Bros, our flavorful menu stands out in its simplicity. We serve up Aloha Spirit in 6 island-inspired Plate Lunches – an homage to classic Hawaiian comfort food. With just 5 sides, including our unique SPAM® Musubi, plus our amazing Dole Soft Serve® for dessert, our meals are memorable, easy to order, and easy to prepare. And the rest of our operation is simple, too. All in, including paper, we have just 81 SKUs total.
