New Member Profile: Mahaloha Burger

Mahaloha Burger is the brainchild of local Hawaiian Jesse Aguinaldo. After years working in the restaurant industry in Las Vegas, Jesse decided to come back home to Hawaii with the vision of opening up a burger joint that serves burgers made with fresh never frozen quality grass-fed beef and fresh natural ingredients without breaking the bank. That vision became Mahaloha Burger, which first opened its doors in 2010 at the first location in the heart of Waikiki at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. Five years later, our second location opened in Kailua – a perfect setting for a meal after a day at the beach, this location serves up beer on tap and has its own seating area indoors and outdoors! Our third location opened this year at the Ala Moana Center – The Lanai. Our burgers are made with fresh local produce and fresh beef from 100% free range premium beef from the Big Island of Hawaii. No fillers, preservatives, antibiotics or growth hormones! Mahaloha Burger is home of the origina..

It’s National Diabetes Month

November is National Diabetes Month, which is a great opportunity to spend some time learning about diabetes and how to prevent or manage it. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. Its progression can result in major life-threating complications including stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage, and skin and eye complications. One in ten Americans has diabetes, and another 84 million adults in the U.S. are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. An important role the restaurant industry can play is offering and assisting guests with diabetes-friendly menu options. Eating can be tricky for individuals with diabetes, and many people may feel their meal choices are limited. The restaurant industry can help by being familiar with menus and nutrition and making healthy recommendations. Here are some recommendations on types of dishes that may be appropriate to offer someone with diabetes: Fish or meats (broiled or baked) Vegetables or salad W..

Industry Spotlight – Food Media Placement Tips by Erika Engle

It may be easier than you think to get free coverage for your food and beverage business, even if you don’t know anybody in the media industry. First, decide where you want to be seen. To determine that, answer some questions. What’s your product? Who is, or who are your customers? Who are the customers you don’t have yet? Which medium are they most likely to use? Choose that one. OR, you can use an old farming approach to getting your business covered by the media. Say you’ve got a handful of seeds to sow over a wide area. You’re going to BROADCAST them. That’s where the term came from, just so you know. Rather than just approaching one media outlet, maybe you want to approach several. If so, put together a news release explaining the who what when where etc., of your restaurant, or product, or other-best-thing-since-sliced-bread. Not a great writer? Use bullet points. Media people are busy and they get about 5.2 million emails every day, so the quicker something is to read, th..
