Dean & Deluca to Open Hawaii Location in 2014

foodGourmet market Dean & Deluca is set to open its first Hawaii location, although the company has not yet confirmed exactly where the new store will be.

Later, in 2015 or early 2016, the gourmet market will open a new location in a mixed-use development that includes The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach on Oahu (“The Residences”) and adjacent to the prestigious retailers of Luxury Row. The store will launch in partnership with PACREP LLC, the developer of The Residences. For future locations in Hawaii, Dean & Deluca will be working with Avancer Group as its Hawaii Area Developer. Avancer will open multiple locations including markets, cafes, and new formats throughout the islands over the next several years.

The Hawaii store will be home to a highly curated selection of gourmet food products, including fine cheeses, charcuterie, pastry, baked goods, and more, as well as seasonally prepared foods. The selection will also pay homage to the Hawaiian Islands’ bountiful produce and regional, local cuisine. Dean & Deluca’s signature line of coveted products, from spices to chocolates and candies to coffee and tea, vinegars, oils, sauces and snacks will also be available.

“We are thrilled to launch Dean & Deluca in Hawaii, and are incredibly excited about our first location at The Residences, as well as our future homes throughout the islands,” said Geoffrey Upham, managing director international of Dean & Deluca. “We’re looking forward to being in the heart of this world-renowned community with its rich culture and food scene, and becoming a go-to destination for visitors and neighborhood shoppers.”
