About L&L Hawaiian Barbecue

Be a part of one of the most celebrated Asian cuisine fast food establishments in the world. With a name that is fondly considered internationally, it doesn't matter if you are genuinely Hawaiian yourself or if you just feel that Aloha spirit inside you!

Join our family and be a part of a team of people who love to make great food and have recipes that have won us the love and respect of communities around the globe.

Values & History

L& L was established as a high-quality brand in Hawaii in 1976, and for over forty years, we've thrived at bringing not our homegrown native Hawaiian fare but also our quick-paced dining experiences first throughout the United States and then beyond.

When we talk about our franchisees, we talk about the value of ohana — the Hawaiian word for family. If you join our established franchise ownership group, you won't just be some outsider we're lending our name to. You'll be treated like one of the family. That's a core value and one of the primary reasons that we have successfully grown from where we started as a small family business to where we are now — a respected name on the grand world stage.

Another is because of the generous portions that our customers receive with every order. They may walk in hungry, but they will always leave satisfied that they got a tremendous plate full of wonderful and genuine Hawaiian cuisine.

Industry Performance

It's an honor to have been selected three years running as the #1 Asian food franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine. That is the kind of respect that you will receive on day one as a franchisee.

In addition to a global-spanning presence that has expanded to over 200 restaurants, we have recently signed an agreement with Walmart that allows L& L to create food and beverage locales within their superstores. This deal gains the company even more visibility and prestige and demonstrates why L & L is a strong brand name to associate with.

Purchasing a L&L Hawaiian Barbecue Franchise

When you become part of our ohana, we make sure that you have everything you need to thrive. We want to ensure that every restaurant offers the same amazing experience for our customers. When they enter an L & L Hawaiian barbeque, we want them to have a night of dining that is stimulating and fulfilling.

That only happens if you get all of the right tools from us, and you will. When you buy into L & L you're going to get everything from our comprehensive training and marketing programs to access to all of our recipes and business tools for success.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

If you love Asian cuisine and have the drive and work ethic to be a high-level restauranteur, then we are certainly interested in discussing a franchise opportunity with you. We are always looking for prime new locations to treat new customers to the many delights on our menu.

If you have the Aloha spirit and share our passion for bringing the traditions of Hawaii to the rest of the world and aren't afraid to do hands-on work when necessary and commit to a full-time schedule then you are a prime candidate and the kind of collaborator we are looking to do business with.

Training & Support

Our business support program and food franchise operating systems are top-notch. We've opened over 200 locations. We have the know-how and we'll share that knowledge with you. Let us guide you with our experience and proven methods for operating a successful L&L Hawaiian Barbeque.
