It’s An Opportunity To Spread Aloha

When you’re part of the L&L ohana, you not only provide customers with delicious food. You also share in our mission to spread the aloha spirit throughout the United States and the world at large.

As a part of the L&L ohana, you join a successful Hawaii-based restaurant franchise with business roots in Hawaii, with international reach.

L&L has recently signed an agreement with Walmart that enables L&L to operate food and beverage spaces inside available Walmart Supercenters. With high foot traffic and great visibility, this presents a great opportunity for L&L.

About Us

For over 40 years, the L&L family of companies has been bringing Hawai`i to the world through food and a distinctive fast casual/quick service dining experience. While our footprint now encompasses 200 restaurants in 14 states (as of April 2019), we consider and treat all of our franchisee partners as 'Ohana, which is the Hawaiian word for family. Although over half of our franchisees were neither born nor lived in Hawai`i, our 'Ohana from far and near are bonded by a common spirit.

Through the 'Aloha spirit, we offer our diners incredible value through generous portions of Asian-influenced Hawaiian fare in a welcoming atmosphere. We are honored to have been named by Entrepreneur Magazine the #1 Asian food franchise for 3 consecutive years.
