One of the best things about Central Maui is how, well, central it is, being accessible to and from so many parts of the island. And “accessible” is a word we use when describing our mission: to get farm-to-table cuisine into the hands (and mouths!) of more people, through convenience, affordability, quality products and local support. Our Kahului eatery is going strong, after opening on June 1, 2018 at 120 Ho’okele Street #330 in the Pu‘unēnē Shopping Center. We love this location, and are grateful to be surrounded by thriving neighbors like Target, Starbucks and Petco!!
As you’ll see in our video above, our June 1st grand opening featured a very moving Hawaiian blessing by Kimokeo Kapahulehua, and a meet-and-greet with supplier Kumu Farms.
Our newest locale spans 1,400 square feet, comfortably seating more than 20 guests in a state-of-the-art, custom-designed space. You’ll find step-by-step instructions built into our vibrant wall collage to help make ordering a snap! You can enjoy the same healthy and fresh menu items available at the Azeka Mauka location in Kīhei, including build-your-own options, signature salads, a range of sandwiches, gluten-freeitem
Also in our video, you’ll hear a little about the vision for mainland expansion and exclusive partnership with Fransmart, the industry-leading franchise development company behind the success of household concepts like The Halal Guys and Five Guys Burgers & Fries. Get more details on Fork & Salad franchise opportunities here.
However far this journey grows, we proudly remain a Maui-based concept, committed to serving and supporting the island’s kama‘āina and businesses. In fact, we employ roughly 40 island residents between our two Maui locations, and source over 50 local ingredients from more than 25 farmers and suppliers based in Hawai’i. So come visit our bustling Kahului location and check out our video for the story behind our expansion, and what’s to come!! #EatLocalEatHealthy#
Maui County Agricultural Festival remains an inspiring event for us at Fork & Salad. After all, we are a farm-to-table eatery with more than 25 local suppliers and producers!! Known as “AgFest,” the big day is on the way Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The event takes some preparation on our part, so check out the video above to see our journey to AgFest from last year, and get a taste of what’s to come this year!
Admission is $5 at door or included with other ticket sales. With interactive exhibits, a keiki zone, farmers’ market, Grand Taste dining event and more, the 11th-annual event is prime way to raise awareness about Maui’s agricultural industry. It brings together farmers, educators, chefs and other supporters at Maui Tropical Plantation for a full day of fun events! We’ll be there with our Fork & Salad booth and Three’s food truck, and we’re happy to help showcase ag’s vital role in the economy, environment, and lifestyle of Maui. #EatLocalEatHealthy
It was an evening of gratitude, ‘ohana and loads of fresh produce at Fork & Salad! Hundreds shared in our Grand Opening celebration during Kīhei’s 4th Friday on August 26, 2016. We were so moved by the powerful Hawaiian blessing, led by Kumu Kimokeo Kapahulehua. In addition, Fork & Salad featured food specials, free kombucha samples, a mini-farmers market and beer garden! Our charitable partner Grow Some Good was also on-hand with seed packets and great community outreach. And you can enjoy yet another beer garden on our outdoor patio and farmers market right outside our restaurant at Kīhei’s 4th Friday on September 23 at from 6 to 9 p.m. In this video, take a look at what the special night meant to us, including a look back at how it all began!
