About Us


Mission Statement

Our mission is to spread the Spirit of Aloha around the world with gourmet Hawaiian shortbread cookies. Our cookies are baked fresh daily, made with the finest ingredients and natural Hawaiian fruit flavors, and individually wrapped to maintain their delicious oven-fresh quality. We package our cookies by hand in our unique, signature packaging to ensure that each box can be presented as a treasured gift, from our ‘Ohana to yours.


Company History

Honolulu Cookie Company started in 1998 when entrepreneurs Keith and Janet Sung developed a recipe for premium shortbread cookies. As an artist, Keith wanted to develop something unique – a cookie that represented true Hawaiian hospitality. What he created was a line of island-inspired flavors in a signature pineapple shape. The recipe has been refined over the years, but we always carry through that dedication to quality ingredients inspired by the flavors of our island home.

From our bakery, stores opened throughout Honolulu, particularly in Waikiki, to ensure the hospitality that inspired our cookies was delivered to visitors from around the world. Eventually, we found homes and opened new locations on Maui, in Las Vegas, and in Guam.

Each progression is informed by a commitment to sharing the best experience of a Hawaiian vacation. The cookie collection packages are designed to delight and the stores are eager to share the Aloha Spirit, but it all begins with the cookies. The finest ingredients are selected to bake fresh daily and ship internationally to friends and fans around the world.


Our Cookie Story

Our cookies are baked fresh each day and our bakers follow a strict recipe of only the finest ingredients to create our premium, Hawaiian-inspired shortbread cookies. From hand-dipping our cookies in Guittard chocolate, to hand-placing each tropical fruit morsel and coffee bean on our cookies, every cookie is given individual attention to ensure that it meets the high standard of quality that Honolulu Cookie Company is known for. Each cookie is individually wrapped and packed by hand in our unique signature packaging, then sent out to either our retail locations or the locations of one of our partners.
