Values & History

Embedded into the brand by our founders, Eddie Flores and Johnson Kam, many of our franchisees, employees, and stakeholders have contributed to this aspect of our business, and as a result to the overall success of the L&L brand.

We have been supportive of activities that promote a variety of areas including entrepreneurship, cultural diversity, and education. From scholarships, participation in community events, and outreach to promote aloha in the communities, we are happy to see that our contributions have made a positive impact.

Industry Performance

Market Demand & Advantage Entrepreneur Magazine ranked L & L Hawaiian Barbecue as the #1 Asian food franchise four years in a row (2020, 2019, 2018, 2017). L & L is a unique concept that serves delicious Asian American dishes that could be addicting. When L & L had a soft opening in Dallas without any advertising, hundreds of people were waiting in line to savor our freshly cooked meals.

L & L offers more flexibility for you as an entrepreneur than most restaurant franchises. You work with lesser constraints and more creativity.
