Scream name Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave ice As the best place to get ice cream in Hawaii. Maui uses 100% pure cane sugar, natural fruit juices, pureed extracts, high-quality extracts, ingredients, and locally perfected sorbets.
“When we first started, we had no advertising budget or social media experience,” said David Yamashiro, Ululani co-founder and CEO at Hawaiian Shave Ice. “Yelp and Trip Advisor have been key factors in spreading our name.”
The quality of the ice, the taste and quality of their drink and the warm service of their team have all earned them a 5-star rating with thousands of reviews.
“Our Kihei store has been rated 5-star and on almost everyone’s ‘must go’ list for the past 10-11 years,” Yamashiro said. “Between Yelp (nearly 2,000 reviews), Google (over 1,100 reviews), and Trip Advisor (1,836 reviews), this is over 5,000 reviews and an average of 5 stars. It says a lot about the quality of shaving ice and the experience our team provides. “.
Yamashiro adds that they also own the Sugar Beach Bake Shop, which is right next to the Kihei shave ice site and has just been ranked #1 in the Yelp’s list of the best bakeries in Maui.
He thanks Yelp and the customers who have shown their support all these years.
