Aloha All Day, Every Day!

FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY

WELCOME

Makai Island Grill prides itself on offering the most mouth-watering and delicious meals from the island of Hawaii, and as such has a next level opportunity in the food-service industry. The Lawther brothers originally learned recipes from their grandmother, who operated a food truck and catering businesses in Honolulu Hawaii. Makai, which means “to the ocean”, is representative of the laid-back and relaxing atmosphere. The model is fun, trendy, and convenient and the name personifies the relaxed attitude and flavorful dishes that immediately get your mouth watering.

Our franchise opportunity is one that is both rewarding and profitable. We are looking for individuals who can invest, own, operate, and love the Makai brand and philosophy. Bring the best of Hawaiian food to the rest of the country with Makai Island Grill. If you’re interested in becoming part of what makes us great, then open a franchise today!
