Description of Business

Hula Dog® is a unique Hawaiian experience. In a specially baked, bun sized loaf of bread we pierce a "Puka" from one end through most of the length of the bun. Hula Dog reinvents the identity of the American hot dog.

What Is A Hula Dog

The sweet essence of local fruits is combined with the mellow warmth of our garlic, lemon sauces to contrast with the savory taste of a polish sausage. Therefore, not only do we provide a hotdog that not only presents a totally new taste sensation, but one that must be held differently too. In addition, we employ our own uniquely designed equipment to toast a Puka (hole) in the bread and keep the polish sausages separate from the veggies. With bright colorful murals, and painted tables & chairs, we present our dinning experience in a tropical Bamboo little hut setting to follow the idea of a Hawaiian influence in our products. In this we hope to reach the world that our hotdogs have a Hawaiian accent.

The Power of the Hula Dog

At Hula Dog Hawaiian Style Hot Dogs we take our mission to deliver a unique hot dog experience very seriously. Hula Dog is a new power in comfort food that will forever be linked to Hawaii. For many it is a fond memory of their visit, for others it is an opportunity to learn and grow by a solid work ethic and community service. We apply a special focus on training young people to work as a team and to be aware of the needs of their communities. Hula Dog® is about the basics of friendly people who provide good service and are cheerful and fun to be around. We care about the nurture and sustainability of the planet and try to implement policies that reflect 'Green' virtues in our standard operating procedures. Caring about the neighborhood and 'doing one's best' is a down home quality that we believe in.

Therefore, we have redefined the basic idea of the American hotdog tradition into one of tropical translation that celebrates the splendor of the Hawaiian Islands. The buns we use are unlike anything else known in the industry and the style of our shops is to reflect an appreciation for all that is good about Hawaii. So we strive to make our hot dogs memorable, our shops nostalgic of 'Old Hawaii' and our service casual but excellent. In all that we do, we seek to reflect the ambiance of the islands through our presentation, so that the customer may not only feel satisfied, but transformed by the simple charm of all that is Hula Dog.
