Celebrating the Grand Opening of Foodland Kapolei!

All of us here at Foodland are excited to announce the arrival of the newest member of our family -- Foodland Kapolei. If this sounds a bit like a birth announcement, that's because opening a new store really is a bit like having a baby. Not only are there the months of preparation and planning of every last detail and the steps taken to ensure the new addition will be happy and healthy, but there's also the anxiousness, excitement, and anticipation of new experiences to come. As we show off Foodland Kapolei -- our "new baby" -- to you this week, we hope you'll like what you see!

Our new store is the result of the hard work and planning of many individuals, all committed to ensuring Foodland Kapolei will be a great place to shop. From our architects who designed the space, to our creative team who developed a warm, welcoming interior, to our department directors who searched for new offerings the community would enjoy, to our store employees who are excited to make serving customers the most important thing they do, everyone is dedicated to ensuring this is a store of which we -- and the Kapolei community -- will be proud.

There's certainly much to see and explore at our new store! Along with favorites you've come to love at Foodland -- including Hawaii's Best Poke, Certified Angus Beef®, great local produce, and Maika'i savings and rewards -- you'll find a wide selection of offerings from Waianae's own MA'O Organic Farms, grass fed beef from Molokai Beef, our new Furikake Fried Chicken, a place to grind your own nut butter, a self-serve bulk liquids station with olive oil, honey, maple syrup and soy sauce, a large variety of ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook-or-BBQ items including our popular Pork Belly Skewers and -- my personal favorite -- our first ever Kim Chee bar! Plus, you'll also find R. Field Wine Company for specialty food and wine, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and coming soon, our pharmacy.

We hope you will stop by and check out the newest addition to our Foodland family. Grand opening activities during opening week include product sampling, prize giveaways, and more! You can even help Kapolei schools earn $12,500 by shopping with your Maika'i Card through Nov. 30. All of us at Foodland look forward to seeing and serving you as we share our excitement about the long awaited arrival of Foodland Kapolei!

Celebrating 65 years of Serving Hawaii

May 6 is a very special day here at Foodland as it marks the 65th anniversary of the opening of our first store – and Hawaii’s first supermarket – at Market City shopping center in Honolulu. The pride all of us who work here feel can be summed up in the words of Joanna Sullivan, wife of our late founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan who recently explained her excitement about our 65th anniversary saying, “I’m so proud that Foodland remains locally owned and operated and continues to ... more »

Mahalo, Honolulu!

How excited all of us were to learn that we were voted “best grocery store” by the readers of Honolulu Magazine – for the second year in a row. This recognition means a great deal to us as it came not from a panel of editors or experts, but from the people who know us, our stores, and our employees best --- all of YOU!

The Comfort of Shoyu Chicken

For those of us who grew up in Hawaii, certain local foods always stir feelings of comfort. These are the foods we think about on a cold wintry day at college and the ones we long for after night upon night of eating out when traveling. Simple and unfussy, they are foods that make us feel good -- dishes we associate with the warmth and comfort of home.

Congratulations Chef Keoni Chang!

"And the winner is ... Keoni Chang!" "YES!" I shouted and clapped my hands before I realized that everyone at my gate at the Charlotte ariport was staring at me. But I didn't mind. They probably saw my excitement and wondered if I had won the lottery. I was so thrilled — it felt like I had, or at least that Foodland had.

Celebrating Foodland's 64th Anniversary!

This month marks the 64th anniversary of Foodland’s founding, an occasion we look forward to celebrating with all of you. Each year, our anniversary reminds us of how fortunate and blessed we are to have great customers and employees who support us.

Mahalo Honolulu

All of us here at Foodland were thrilled to learn that we were voted “best grocery store” by readers of Honolulu Magazine. What a tremendous honor this is – especially during a year in which we were faced not only with having to close our Hawaii Kai store after nearly 50 years, but also with mass merchants like WalMart and Target selling more food and our competitors opening new stores right near ours. We know that you have more choices than ever of where you do your grocery shopping, ... more »
