Ono Hawaiian BBQ, best known for its island-inspired Hawaiian plates, continues its expansion within the state of California with the opening of the brand’s 74th restaurant. The island-inspired and Southern California-based business officially opens to the public on Thursday, August 30, and will commemorate with a celebratory luau on grand opening day.
The luau will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:45 a.m., followed by a raffle from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at which time 50 $100 gift cards will be given away on the spot. The event will also host Hawaiian dance performers from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., along with a buy one, get one free offer on all food items during business hours.
“We’ve received demand for quite some time now, and are extremely excited to be welcomed into the Bakersfield community,” says Joshua Liang, Chief Executive Officer of Ono Hawaiian BBQ. “This expansion allows us to grow alongside a new consumer base, and gives the community a chance to experience firsthand the quality and freshness we’re all about.”
Ono Hawaiian BBQ’s core menu features Hawaiian-inspired plate lunches and island specialties like Hawaiian BBQ Chicken, Spam Musubi and Chicken Katsu made through a fusion of flavors. The interior design incorporates an inviting yet industrial chic feel inspired by Hawaii’s rustic elements including reclaimed wood walls, rope lighting, aqua tiles and tropical planters.
The newly opened Ono Hawaiian BBQ is located at 2630 Mount Vernon Ave., Suite 300, Bakersfield, CA 93306 and will operate Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
