A unique subsection of American cuisine is Hawaiian. A Hawaiian-inspired franchise to consider is the C&H Hawaiian Grill. With the combination of a home-like environment and great food and service, C&H Hawaiian Grill has gained a following of fans. The fast-causal brand was a passion project for co-founders Hensan and Cora Timo, who had a lifetime belief that their calling is to share the food they love to make with their friends, family, and community. They were inspired to start the franchise when their two sons enlisted to serve in the U.S. Army and were assigned to Fort Hood. They also have a strong love for Hawaii and its culture and food. Since opening its doors in 2004, C&H Hawaiian Grill has become a popular and unique Hawaiian concept in Texas. Customers enjoy being able to feel the Aloha energy of Hawaii while at the restaurants. The brand's menu specializes in Hawaiian delicacies. The brand makes fresh food to order, and it is served with great care to the customers. With two successful locations, the fast-casual brand is looking to expand with franchise partners across the country.
Franchises are given a storefront and benefit from a successful model. The ideal location ranges between 1,500 to 2,000 sq. ft. These locations can be standalone or part of shopping center. The initial investment ranges between $156,950 - $285,000, which includes a one-time franchise fee of $29,900. This investment will cover the expenses of opening a restaurant including furniture and fixtures. Royalties are set at 5.5% of total gross sales.
