HiBlend Health Bar & Cafe's concept has been created by three brothers, Miles Sugahara, Joey Sugahara, and Jason Chang. Two brothers by blood, one built on the brotherhood and bond in the making since elementary school days. Growing up in the neighborhoods of Hawaii Kai which has carried through till this day. Throughout our lives we've been in many different areas of different industries taking what we've learned along the way, building, and putting together the ideas which had evolved to what we carry out now. Fascination with clean and healthy living, simply wanting fresh tasty ingredients set us off into a journey into local farms all over the island. Almost two years ago, when we first set sail on the mission to obtain the best, most affordable ingredients to provide for our clientele, was more difficult than we had ever imagined. We've physically walked the soils of farms, many dead end phone calls made, waiting lists which never seem to ever come up, no return calls, and slim pickings in variety of produce needed. Never giving up making connections and gathering information in multiple farmers markets. Finally after all the research we were able to work with a farm from Waialua North Shore. It was a quick trial to find out it was very hard to meet the minimum delivery fee being new with the limited 660 sq ft space we called our cafe. It was then we knew weekly trips to the farmers markets was necessary and continued to do so for many months to come.
Till one day a friend's information on a farm doing no spray organic practice led us back to our old stomping grounds of Kaiser High School. The farm was located in the back of the high school, ran by Bill and Karian, named Wally's Farm. This was a dream come true to be able to work with them for over a year, participating in recycling our composts and coffee grounds weekly, harvesting our own produce 3-4 days a week, and helping to clean the farm when needed. We are very thankful for the relationship we've built with Bill and Karian. As we went on unfortunately our demands grew and sadly they could not meet the demands we needed. Most recently we began working with the wonderful Kahumana Organic Farm in Waianae which we are very pleased with their fresh produce and service. Its been a long journey and we have learned a lot. We have grown as a business as well as people and we are very proud of what we have accomplished to this day. It definitely has been a battle of staying true to ourselves and concept to carry out what we believe in. Understanding and learning what it truly means to support local for a better more sustainable Hawaiian Islands. We do outsource for certain produce from the mainland due to the limited resources here on the islands. Some produce just can't be obtained locally or some costs are just too high to support to make it as a local business. We truly do our best to offer our people a variety of local, farm fresh, organic, all natural, and non GMO ingredients.
