C&H Hawaiian Grill

The C&H Hawaiian Grill franchise is a Hawaiian-inspired fast-casual concept. 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. The couple then moved from Portland, Oreg., to Killeen, Texas. The Timo family opened the first location of C&H Hawaiian Grill in 2004. The second location was opened on their 10-year anniversary in 2014.
