Invest in what matters most


Ohana Hawaiian Snow is the vehicle you need to take your passion for your family, your community, and the island life and turn them into a rewarding and fulfilling business. 


Ohana Hawaiian Snow offers a Hawaiian experience like no other. With the unique combination of shave ice, island drinks and smoothies, enormous portions, an immersive island escape, and a mobile event business, Ohana has brought Hawaii so close you can taste it!




"Juggling work, kids, activities, etc. can make it difficult for our family to stop and take in simple joys together. Ohana provides a fun atmosphere with exceptional service and a superior product that allows our family to “get away” without the travel. Visiting Ohana is like stopping for a cool treat at the beach. There’s an atmosphere like no other place around, and the shave ice is next level."

-Eric (Paragould, AR)

Low Start-Up Cost

High Profit Margins

Scalable Investment


Quick and Easy Startup

Because of our custom ready-to-go mobile kiosks, getting up and running is quick and much more affordable than a traditional brick and mortar business. With an investment of $60-80,000, you could be up and running in less than 90 days. 

Mile-Long Lines!

People of all ages get excited about Ohana Hawaiian Snow. Imagine shaving ice, looking out the serving window, and seeing a line of guests 30 to 50 people deep! It's exhilarating... and not uncommon.

Event Business Option

The Ohana Hawaiian Snow event business allows you to bring the sweet taste of Hawaii anywhere--schools, churches, festivals, factories, and more. A busy event can create a labor rate as low as 10%. Coupled with an 8% food cost, and you will see why this is a no-brainer.

Sweet Tech

We provide online platforms for guests to order for pickup or delivery, purchase digital gift cards, book events, check their loyalty status, and more. You will also be able to track sales, see labor rates, and more in real time.


Ohana means family

Partner with the people that matter most--your family. Ohana Hawaiian Snow is in the business of bringing families together, and that starts with our franchise owners.

Invest in the future

Do you have a passion for developing people? Ohana Hawaiian Snow's success is directly tied to each location's commitment to developing a team (or family) of passionate, mostly young, hourly-paid employees who deliver an outstanding guest experience. Sure we serve Hawaiian shave ice and boba drinks, but we are ultimately in the business of people. 




Shave Ice Kiosk

Create an island oasis with Ohana Hawaiian Snow's flagship shave ice and boba infusion drinks kiosk. With this combination, you can stay open year-round or keep it seasonal.


Mobile Shave Ice Event Business

Bring the sweet taste of Hawaii to schools, churches, birthday parties, corporate events, sporting events and more with a mobile shave ice event business.


To operate a mobile shave ice franchise, you must also operate at least one shave ice and boba infusion kiosk.


Area Development Opportunity

As a franchisee, you have the option to develop an exclusive territory with multiple kiosks and an event business. 


Shave Ice has been a staple in Hawaii for decades. Ohana Hawaiian Snow's syrups are made with 100% pure cane sugar and flavors imported from Hawaii. Our ice is made with the purest water and shaved into ultra fine, fluffy ribbons of snow. Add a scoop of ice cream, gummy sharks, candy, snow cap, popping boba, or coconut flakes to make this the perfect island treat.

Our online ordering system opens up additional revenue streams as guests can choose pickup or delivery through partners such as DoorDash and others.


Wow your guests

In reality, we're not just selling shave ice and boba drinks; we're offering an experience. We work hard to ensure that every guest has an unforgettable Hawaiian experience. From incredible theming, to the friendliest staff, to the tasty island treats, as a franchisee, you will be equipped to consistently deliver excellence and have your guests returning time after time.

Some things you should expect

The Ohana Hawaiian Snow® franchise opportunity is unique in the foodservice industry by bringing an authentic Hawaiian experience to communities all across the mainland. We want to make you aware of the realities of owning and operating an Ohana Hawaiian Snow business, as well as characteristics we're looking for in prospective candidates.
