The popular Hawaiian fast casual concept, Hawaiian Bros, has plans for massive growth in Texas, bringing the humble Aloha spirit with them. Each restaurant features a striking design and island vibe with a kitchen void of freezers, fryers and microwaves. Food is prepared fresh daily. The concept offers authentic island comfort food in the form of traditional Hawaiian plate lunches as well as sides.
The first Hawaiian Bros opened in Kansas City in 2018 by brothers, Cameron and Tyler McNie, and has quickly become a staple for those who are looking for unique, consistent, high-quality food in a fast casual setting. Prior to opening their first location, the brothers were personally taught traditional Hawaiian recipes and cooking techniques used by native Hawaiians for generations.
A college-town favorite is making its way to Dallas-Fort Worth. Fazoli’s is set to open three locations in North Texas late next year.
The fast-casual Italian concept’s expansion to Dallas-Fort Worth comes as part of an area development agreement between Fazoli’s CEO Carl Howard and Sajib Singha of Singha Group. Singha owns several Captain D’s, Dairy Queen, Golden Chick, Papa John’s and Schlotzsky’s locations throughout Dallas Fort Worth.
