How A Dream Began

It all started by creating a unique product differing from those of other juice companies in terms of its raw materials, the origins of those materials, and the resulting product. We aspired to create juice products using local organic ingredients when available with a consistency, quality, and taste that would strongly appeal to health-conscious consumers. More importantly, we aimed to create these high-quality and healthy products at a competitive price.

When Lanikai Juice was started, in 1997, there were 10 juice bars spread throughout the island of O’ahu. A few months after Lanikai Juice opened its doors to the public, a national chain competitor launched one of its franchised stores across the street from Lanikai Juice and other locations on O’ahu. Within a year, Lanikai Juice was the only juice bar still standing against the national chain juice bar.

Through integrity, dedication, and appreciation of the resources surroundings the business and the community hosting us, we created an innovative model that motivated employees to give their best, united with local producers and farmers to support the local economy, and offered delicious and nutritious juice products to customers for an optimal price.
