Y. Hata & Co., Ltd. is currently accepting memberships and hiring for its new ChefZone wholesale foodservice outlet opening this fall. The new 45,000 SF facility, located at 2888 Ualena Street (in the airport industrial area), is part of the company’s strategy to expand its business and fill a need for the independent food service businesses and non profits.
“We did our homework and found a rising popularity in cash and carry wholesale food distributors on the mainland,” said Russell Hata, chairman and CEO of Y. Hata. “We put together a dynamite team and developed ChefZone.”
“Hawaii is known worldwide for its independently-owned, local restaurants, food trucks and pop-up eateries that provide ono food. They may not be large enough for food service delivery and don’t have the luxury of time to make three of four daily stops to get what they need. ChefZone can be the one-stop shop for these businesses.”
