A cookie a day keeps the doctor away! Isn’t that how the saying goes? Sink your teeth into a delicious, freshly baked pineapple shaped cookie, exploding with island inspired flavors and only the best of quality ingredients. The business is Honolulu Cookie Company, and the product is perfection!
In 1998, Keith and Janet Sung crafted the perfect recipe for a shortbread cookie and began selling their product in retail spaces. As an artist, Keith worked up the creative idea to shape the cookies like a pineapple, to represent Hawaiian culture and hospitality. The pineapple is a staple of the Hawaiian Islands, and is the international symbol of hospitality. Designed to be given as gifts, Keith and Janet’s delectable treats were such a success, in 2001 the first Honolulu Cookie Company store was opened in Honolulu. With baked fresh daily cookies, there are now 14 store locations on the islands of Maui and Oahu, as well as Guam and Las Vegas and the cookies are also sold in other retail spaces like Costco, Bloomindale’s and Tommy Bahama. The Sung’s opened their online market in 2008, shipping these pineapple goodies all through the US as well as Puerto Rico, Japan, Canada and Australia. As the company states, “for the very best, look for the pineapple shape”!
As a family owned business, Keith and Janet hired their son, Ryan, to be the general manager of the company in 2018, making Honolulu Cookie Company all the more special. Using only the finest of ingredients and natural Hawaiian flavors, all manufacturing distribution and retail is handled in the same store. Each cookie is carefully baked and shaped, and packaged by hand. In 2017, Honolulu Cookie Company had sold over 70 million cookies. Which makes it quite clear how the company has managed to take home multiple awards! In 2014 the business was named Retailer of the Year by the Retail Merchants of Hawaii, and has since won many more awards for the company and also the products.
