Tropical Blends O'ahu - 810 Pohukaina Street
There are changes in the works here at Tropical Blends. After seven years on Queen Street, we decided it was time for a move. A search ensued and a virtual oasis was discovered just a few blocks away. The perfect location with the growth potential and improved amenities (PARKING) we were looking for. Best of all, we're still in Kaka'ako, but one layer back from the press of a now very fast paced Queen Street. This is a neighborhood in transition from the light industrial of the past to a gathering place for the artful of the future. The idea is to create a "walking" neighborhood full of smaller loft type apartments, eateries, boutiques, parks and bike lanes. And the process is underway.
The new location allows us the space to expand into much more than just another retail offering. Our plans center around the creation of a "gathering place" for like minded folks. The property includes a large covered area perfect for hosting events of interest. We've started with what we call a Surf Exchange or swap meet. The public is invited to come by once a month to buy, sell, trade or swap second hand surf stuff. Soon to come will be an established movie night where we can offer all sorts of entertainment including local works from amateur filmmakers. There's a full kitchen in the building which we are currently working to set up as a certified prep area. Once the renovations are complete, we'll be set to offer a pleasant hideaway following a surf where you'll find protein, hydration and most importantly a place to share the stories.
There's more.....a redesign of our web site to include sales and connectivity to sister sites offered in the native language of the countries where our products are sold. We're building on our distribution base, designing new products, developing new marketing strategies and enjoying the process. So please stand by while we overhaul our approach and work towards improvements intended to enhance our enjoyment of the sport we all love.
There's still plenty to see here so take a look around and know it will only get better!
We appreciate your support.
Aloha from the Tropical Blends Crew
