The pizza parlor, with an adjoining game room, first opened its doors in 1954 in Southern California and now sports numerous locations across the nation that both entertains and feeds guests.

Brad Vandeman is the owner of the Hawaii franchise, which opened in February 2010, and says that Shakey’s is widely known for its famous specialty pizzas, fried chicken and mojos.

“Customers love the food here and we host a lot of birthday parties. We’re packed on the weekends,” says Vandeman. “Customers can expect great food and lots of fun for the whole family. The adults come here and they can enjoy a beer, pizza and watch sports, and the kids can go and have fun in the game room. So Shakey’s really is a family destination.”

Shakey’s also is a proud supporter of Hawaii’s keiki and offers a variety of tools to assist both children and youths organizations in achieving their goals.
