Construction has been underway for over 2 years on the 12,700-square-foot Kilauea Market + Café in the Kilauea Lighthouse Village on Kauai, a new grocery-restaurant hybrid from the Sullivan Family of Companies’ Kalama Beach Corp. The Sullivan Family of Companies also owns the Foodland and Food Pantry stores in Hawaii. The Kilauea Market + Café will anchor the 43,000-square-foot Kilauea Lighthouse Village, a neighborhood center in historic Kilauea Town.
The Kilauea Market + Café, designed by architects G70, is expected to open May 2019. The store will feature specialty, gourmet and traditional grocery items, as well as a coffee bar, an in-store dining and seating area, and made-to-order foods from an in-store kitchen. “Our team is excited to have the opportunity to bring a new grocery shopping experience to Kilauea,” Vernon Ikebe, vice president of sales and operations for the Kalama Beach Corp. said in a statement. “Kilauea Market + Café will be a fun place for visitors and residents to enjoy favorite foods, sip a glass of wine, pick up a delicious snack or discover fresh local products – a place where the community can gather.” The New Kilauea Lighthouse Village will have a covered walkable mix of nine charming village buildings with public restrooms, bike racks, and landscaped areas.
