Hula Dog® is a unique Hawaiian experience. In a specially baked, bun sized loaf of bread we pierce a "Puka" from one end through most of the length of the bun. Hula Dog reinvents the identity of the American hot dog.
The sweet essence of local fruits is combined with the mellow warmth of our garlic, lemon sauces to contrast with the savory taste of a polish sausage. Therefore, not only do we provide a hotdog that not only presents a totally new taste sensation, but one that must be held differently too. In addition, we employ our own uniquely designed equipment to toast a Puka (hole) in the bread and keep the polish sausages separate from the veggies. With bright colorful murals, and painted tables & chairs, we present our dinning experience in a tropical Bamboo little hut setting to follow the idea of a Hawaiian influence in our products. In this we hope to reach the world that our hotdogs have a Hawaiian accent.
At Hula Dog Hawaiian Style Hot Dogs we take our mission to deliver a unique hot dog experience very seriously. Hula Dog is a new power in comfort food that will forever be linked to Hawaii. For many it is a fond memory of their visit, for others it is an opportunity to learn and grow by a solid work ethic and community service. We apply a special focus on training young people to work as a team and to be aware of the needs of their communities. Hula Dog® is about the basics of friendly people who provide good service and are cheerful and fun to be around. We care about the nurture and sustainability of the planet and try to implement policies that reflect 'Green' virtues in our standard operating procedures. Caring about the neighborhood and 'doing one's best' is a down home quality that we believe in.
Therefore, we have redefined the basic idea of the American hotdog tradition into one of tropical translation that celebrates the splendor of the Hawaiian Islands. The buns we use are unlike anything else known in the industry and the style of our shops is to reflect an appreciation for all that is good about Hawaii. So we strive to make our hot dogs memorable, our shops nostalgic of 'Old Hawaii' and our service casual but excellent. In all that we do, we seek to reflect the ambiance of the islands through our presentation, so that the customer may not only feel satisfied, but transformed by the simple charm of all that is Hula Dog.
di'lishi is the creation of Marlo Francis from Asheboro, NC. Her first experience with frozen yogurt came after her son told her about discovering the self-serve concept in a neighboring state when he left for college - and he was eager for her to try it when she planned her next visit. Before that could happen, though, Marlo happened upon a bar for herself, while travelling to a larger city near her hometown. After several repeat visits - including eventually traveling to see her son and trying the yogurt bar in his college town, it didn't take long before she began dreaming about opening a shop of her own - one that reflected her unique interpretation of the concept. She wanted to create an environment that invited people to come in and stay awhile. She wanted to serve the finest yogurt and toppings that she could find, as well as a way to regularly contribute to the community around her.
After all of her hard work, the result was di'lishi! She built her model on what have become the three foundational pillars of the company: good for the body, good for the environment and good for the community. With these pillars firmly in place, di'lishi has been a success from the start! Fortifying these three pivotal pillars has made di'lishi, what Marlo calls, "fro-yo recession-proof" - meaning it's built to stand the test of time, instead of being just another quick cookie cutter following a trend. We, at di'lishi, are firm believers in our product and concept - and we are committed to helping you make your store profitable today and in the future.
The decision to throw my 'cup' into the ring came after a lot of research and a growing belief that even though the market was becoming riddled with new chains and independent shops - they were all essentially playing follow the leader. Small stores clustered in big cities... limited variety... shockingly bright... or feminine... or childlike... and yet, all of them drawing a decent crowd because of the trend. So I asked myself - what did these shops have to offer their customers at the end of the trend? Could I create a unique interpretation that would outlast the trend and provide my customers with an experience that would bring them back day after day and year after year... and if so, what would that look like? As these questions rolled around under my big hair, they found answers, and once the answers grew wings, di'lishi was born. - Marlo Francis
