Hokulia Shave Ice Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022



Hokulia?shave ice is an ice-based dessert made by shaving a block of ice, adding our own delicious flavors and a scoop of Utah's own Farr's ice cream. Top that with a?"Sno Cap"?(condensed milk) and you're in?Hawaiian?heaven! Even though it is made with shaved ice, it is called "shave ice," not "shaved ice" by?Hawaiians. Why shave instead of crushed ice? Shaving produces a very fine ice that appears snow-like. This extremely fine texture allows syrups that are added to it to be absorbed by the ice rather than simply surrounding it. The combination of our perfect shave ice (there's magic in our ice!) and our proprietary flavors with a scoop of our award winning ice cream sets us apart.?Hokulia?has its own magical taste - in fact, it's all about the amazing?HOKULIA?TASTE!
