Family-owned Big Island Delights has been baking cookies and confections in Hilo since 1996. Six years ago, they moved from wholesale to retail purveyors and continue to operate their retail store in Hilo at 762 Kanoelehua Ave.
Owners Jeff and Carla Takamine operate their business like their family, and the two are closely intertwined. Values such as generosity, respect and honesty are key to the company’s growth and success.
Top-notch raw ingredients are used to make Big Island Delights, Takamine said, including fresh butter and eggs, pure Tahitian vanilla extract, premium chocolate and 100 percent Hawaiian-grown roasted macadamia nuts.
“We have really worked hard to perfect our products to a point where we feel that it’s the best that we can give to our customers,” Jeff Takamine said. “And especially because of Hawaii being so small, and everyone knows each other, it’s really important to be able to stand proudly behind your product.”
We invite you to take a look and try our products. We look forward to serving you.
Jeffrey and Carla Takamine, Owners
