Infused with the flavors and vibes of Hawaii, Auntie Aloha brings a little bit of paradise into our daily lives. Locals say, ‘auntie’ as a term of respect and endearment to a woman they know or meet for the first time. And although unrelated by blood, these kinds of words create familial bonds with one another and a sense of community.

What has been your biggest challenge and how your team has overcome it?

Looking back, we've learned to always expect the unexpected, to be flexible to adapt to changes, and to recognize the importance of building good relationships in this industry.
