When Foodland Hawaii Kai opened its doors in 1963, it was the first supermarket in a young, but growing community. The store was our 15th Foodland – one that exemplified the vision and foresight of our founder in opening and investing in communities our competitors thought were too small to deserve attention. Over the years, as Hawaii Kai grew, new stores and competition did come to the community. Yet, through all this change, our store remained dedicated to its customers who had been so ... more »

The Road to Hāna, Maui is a gorgeous scenic drive connecting Kahului, where Maui's main airport resides (Route 36), to the remote town of Hāna (Route 360), and wrapping it's way down to the south side of the island (Route 31). For all it's beauty, this breathtaking journey is not for the faint of heart, as it winds through hairpin turns, narrow single lane bridges & portions of unpaved highway. Fortunately for us, you can get a taste of Hāna at select Foodland stores without having to ... more »
One of the things that our wine expert, Ed the Prince of Pau Hana, has been working really hard at doing is dialing up the variety and selection of our wines.

As our company celebrates its 63rd anniversary this week, I can’t help but think about what it must have been like on May 6th, 1948 when our founders, Irish immigrant “Sully” Sullivan and his Chinese immigrant future mother-in law, “Mama” Lau opened the doors to the first Foodland at the corner of Kapiolani and Harding Avenues in Honolulu. I’ve heard the story of that day so many times and looked at the photos so often that if I close my eyes I can almost feel the pride, excitement and ... more »
