Chick-fil-A is Expanding to Hawaii

Thursday, July 29th, 2021

It’s official, Chick-fil-A® restaurants are coming to Hawaii! We’re excited to announce that we plan to open our first restaurant, Chick-fil-A Maui, in Kahului in early 2022 followed by additional locations in Honolulu and Kapolei later next year. Over the next two years, our goal is to open three additional restaurants throughout the state.

We admire Hawaii's caring culture, sense of community and the warm spirit of its people. To support the local communities, and in celebration of each new restaurant opening, Chick-fil-A will donate $25,000 to Feeding America, which will distribute funds to local partners around the islands. Additionally, through our Chick-fil-A Shared Table™ program, our restaurants will donate surplus food to local shelters, soup kitchens and charities. We look forward to identifying local organizations to partner with for this initiative.

Each new restaurant will create approximately 80 jobs for their local communities. Chick-fil-A restaurant Team Members enjoy flexible work hours and leadership growth opportunities, competitive wages and benefits, hands-on training and mentoring, and the chance to apply for scholarships to support their continuing education.

We are honored to join the Aloha State and can’t wait to serve new and existing fans delicious food with remarkable hospitality. More information on timing and future location to come, but in the meantime, here’s a bit about us:
