Maui’s Highest-Rated Fast-Casual Restaurant Approved for California Franchising

August 6, 2014

Coconut’s Fish Cafe, the highest-rated fast-casual restaurant on Maui, has been approved to begin franchising in California, clearing a significant regulatory hurdle and moving the island-themed fish restaurant to the cusp of becoming a major, emerging brand in the fast-casual market.

Already, Coconut’s has spread to Arizona in 2013 and has finalized a deal in Texas for multiple franchised locations to begin opening later in 2014. But with the doors to California opening, the leaders at Coconut’s feel that their biggest market just opened for business.
