Retail Store & Factory
The Maui Ku‘ia Estate Retail Store and Chocolate Factory is currently under construction in the Lahaina Business Park, where we are set to begin operations in the spring of 2019.
This will be the largest chocolate factory in the state of Hawai‘i and will feature an exclusive retail store, complete with chocolate tasting bar, house-made ice creams and pastries, plus delicious made-to-order chocolate drinks and desserts. The 9,000-square-foot facility will also house a commercial kitchen and our open-air Ku‘ia Pavilion, where guests can take in 360-degree views of the ocean and neighbor islands, plus sweeping views of the West Maui Mountains—home to our Lahaina cacao farm.
Our chocolate factory will also offer the ultimate in Maui dining at our Ku‘ia Estate Chef’s Table. This twice-weekly culinary experience will seat 23 at our beautifully-crafted communal dining table, where guests can watch and interact with Executive Chef Riko Bartolome as he prepares and serves a seven-course tasting menu, paired perfectly with beverage selections chosen by the Ku‘ia team.
The environmentally friendly factory will be 100% solar powered by 300 kW of solar panels, supported by 1050 kWh of Tesla batteries, and a 200 kWh standby generator, making it the largest off-grid commercial facility in Maui. Our goal, between the chocolate factory and the farm, is to have a negative carbon footprint.
