The last thing you want to do is spend your new year sitting around waiting for someone to get the gumption to do something.
You want to get up and go out to eat.
And so, this year, for the first time, the Honolulu community has found a new home for a Whole Hog Cafe.
The Honolulu Board of Health has approved the establishment, and its owners are planning a big celebration.
“It’s going to be a whole Hog Festival and we’re going to do a whole festival and we want everybody to come and enjoy,” said owner Kaitlyn Whittaker.
Whittaker said it’s the first Whole Hog Café in Hawaii.
The concept was originally conceived for Hawaii’s first Whole Foods Market.
The Whole Hog Restaurant will open at the Hawaii Community Center in Kapolei sometime this week.
It’s expected to open in late January.
“I think it’s going be a great event for our community, for our city, and for the whole island,” Whittakers said.
Whippsons co-owner and co-CEO, Brian Wong, is excited about the new restaurant.
He’s excited about what this whole hog is going to bring to Hawaii.
“We’re excited about having it in the community, we’re excited that it’s not only going to get people together and celebrate the holidays, but also it’s something that we can bring to our community and to our friends,” Wong said.
The first Wholehog is in the works at the Honolulu Community Center.
The community center is a hub for socializing, shopping, and enjoying Hawaii’s abundant wildlife.
Whole Hog Cafe is the first of its kind in Hawaii and Wong hopes it’s a great way to start the year in Hawaii with a bang.
