HISTORY

The King's Hawaiian tradition began in 1950, when founder Robert Taira opened his first bakery in Hilo, Hawaii. After several years of success, Robert moved his family business to Honolulu and opened that city's first combination Bakery & Restaurant, which became extremely popular. In addition, Robert's unique Portuguese sweet bread received a great deal of attention from residents and visitors alike. This came to be known as King's Hawaiian Bread.

We introduced King’s Hawaiian to the mainland in 1977 when we opened our first factory in Torrance, CA and began bread production. Soon after, we expanded our bakery line and began distributing to grocery stores throughout the United States.

In 1988, our full-service Bakery & Restaurant opened in Torrance. The unique selection of Hawaiian local food and traditional American dishes, as well as our fresh baked goods, quickly made King's Hawaiian one of the South Bay's most popular Bakery & Restaurants.

Today, King's Hawaiian continues to delight our customers with delicious foods, including attractive new dishes that are our connection to the new Hawaii, as well as the baked goods that have made us a household name.
