ESG/Ethical Impact

Our commitment to the community is integral to our mission of spreading the spirit of aloha around the world. Embeded into the brand by our founders, Eddie Flores and Johnson Kam, many of our franchisees, employees and stakeholders have contributed to this aspect of our business, and as a result to the overall success of the L&L brand. We have been supportive of activities that promote a variety of areas including entrepreneurship, cultural diversity and education. From scholarships, participation in community events, and outreach to promote aloha in the communities, we are happy to see that our contributions have made a positive impact. Eddie Flores, Jr. and wife Elaine made a $1 million gift to the Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Eddie, an alumni of the school, presented this second $1 million gift with his wife to the college. In 2007, Flores established a scholarship endowment at the college. Their gift has provided more than 200 scholarships to undergraduate students .Through a genuine and authentic sense of aloha, rooted in our home here in Hawaii, we reflect our pride in the diversity of this special place. The aloha spirit encompasses the unique sense of inclusion and hospitality that has developed here over decades of celebrating what makes us different, embracing what connects us, and practicing a common respect for each other. Many of our franchise owners come from a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds to live the American Dream and to live aloha every day through our restaurants. Additionally, numerous L&L employees throughout our franchise have been able to gain the confidence to thrive in a safe place that embraces differences, bringing it together through the aloha spirit.
