How It All Began... Jessica Kamana’o, formed HI Cravings LLC, aka Jess Da Best Acai Bowls, in October 2013. Jess had always made “her” version of the everyday acai bowl for her family, but hers had a unique twist. Instead of plain ol’ strawberry and banana, Jess created her own unique blend and topped her bowls with an array of fresh fruits depending on what was in season. From there other toppings were added, such as vanilla chips, bee pollen, condensed milk, and even local Pa’i’ai. Her unique blend and selection of fruits and toppings drew a quick, vast, and hungry crowd! It wasn’t until Jessica and her husband Kalani moved to Kapolei that they decided to sell the bowls. They were a hit!
Jessica developed her own new recipes for her unique fruit based bowl blends, and has grown from the acai only days. Over time she also developed an edible raw cookie dough recipe that has gained much attention in the community and has become a popular customer favorite.
Jess, Kalani, and their staff, recognize and appreciate the community and local community support they had given in their early days and have developed strong and lasting relationships that keep the customers coming back for more than just the cookie dough! HI Cravings takes pride in what they serve, because they put out a fresh and excellent product that can be healthy or dessert like; its perfect for anyone at any time. People come for breakfast, lunch, or dessert, and just cant get enough.
Now looking to expand, Jess and Kalani can’t wait to add to their menu and focus on small details of their business including continuing to give back to the community that helped them. They continue to participate in fundraisers and events to help others raise money for their own goals. HI Cravings has been blessed with an amazing exponential growth in the past year and is constantly working to improve and grow business even further.
