AL: Does the weekly Friday spe- cial change monthly, and how do you come up with the specials? TL: The Friday weekly specials do change monthly (or some- times bimonthly). A lot of what we create depends on what ingre- dients we can get our hands on. Our research and development chef, Wayne, and I work closely on creating dishes that use local ingredients as much as possible
and are delicious for our guests. For example, our beloved chili is made with 100% local beef; all of our saimin dishes are made with Sun Noodle saimin noodles, which are locally produced here in Hawaii; Sugarland Growers supplies our tomatoes; we buy local products such as Japanese cucumbers, green onions, papaya and eggplant, when available; and all the eggs used at our Zippy’s locations are local eggs, and we have supported Eggs Hawaii for many years.
AL: What is the most popular item that you sell daily?
TL: The most popular menu item is a toss-up between our Korean Fried Chicken Plate and our fa- mous Zip Pac.
AL: How has the transition been with the Zipster Rewards program?
TL: Since transitioning to Zipster Rewards, I would say that it has been well received by our guests. We are starting to roll out exclu- sive Zipster offers, and starting this
month, we’re rolling out a Zipster Rewards exclusive offer called “CheeHoo! Time.” Think of this as our version of a happy hour. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays throughout the month of April, Zipsters will earn double Zipcoins on every order placed. Consider this a little some- thing extra to help get through the afternoon slump.
Starting April 3, we will also be rolling out new Zipster Rewards re- demption items, including Grilled Cornbread (500 Zipcoins), Chili & Cheese Fries (1,000 Zipcoins) and Meat ‘n Eggs (1,750 Zipcoins).
AL: For those that have not signed up yet, can you tell us how to sign up for this program? TL: To sign up for Zipster Re- wards, go to for detailed instructions and more information.
AL: What specials will be avail- able for Easter?
TL: This Easter, we have a few
specials that will be available only on April 8-9:
• Roast Turkey Plate ($16.10 Honolulu, takeout)
