The event will also have a Hawaiian dance performance from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., along with a buy one, get one free offer on all food items during business hours.
“Arizona continues to be a strong market for us, and it’s exciting to see the positive reaction we’ve received at our Phoenix locations thus far,” says Joshua Liang, Chief Executive Officer of Ono Hawaiian BBQ. “Californians are rapidly becoming more familiar with our concept and brand – and my hope is that by building up our presence in Arizona, we’re able to make Ono Hawaiian BBQ a household name there as well.”
Ono Hawaiian BBQ’s core menu features Hawaiian-inspired plate lunches and island specialties like Hawaiian BBQ Chicken, Spam Musubi and Chicken Katsu made through a fusion of flavors. The interior design incorporates an inviting yet industrial chic feel inspired by Hawaii’s rustic elements including reclaimed wood walls, rope lighting, aqua tiles and tropical planters.
