Awesome In-store experience
In a world of sameness, we offer an in-store experience unlike any in the marketplace. Warm, inviting and filled with the “Aloha Spirit” from the moment you walk in, to the comfort and relaxation you experience while you enjoy a taste of Hawaii.
In 1989, Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii was born on the Big Island of Hawaii with a goal of sharing American-grown, premium Hawaiian coffee from Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, and 100% Kona and Ka’u coffees from Hawaii with coffee lovers everywhere. We moved to Salt Lake City, UT and opened our first Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii store in 1995 and began franchising on the mainland.
Today, Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii serves premium Hawaiian and top other international coffees with a kick. Bad Ass Coffee franchises don’t stop there. We also serve popular blended drinks, teas, food and branded merchandise with exceptional service through 24 stores in the U.S., US Virgin Islands and Japan.
We’re committed to sharing the warm hospitality of the Aloha Spirit with a store atmosphere that allows customers to relax, enjoy themselves and fuel their inner Bad Ass.
In 2019, Royal Aloha Coffee, LLC purchased the rights to the Bad Ass Coffee of Hawaii brand and in 2020 launched a rebranded Bad Ass Coffee with a new logo, packaging, store design all supported with a vision and investment for future growth and success. The opportunity to get in on this hot concept has never been better.
