Our first Zippy's Restaurant opened for business on October 17, 1966 in McCully at a time when two brothers, Francis and Charlie Higa created an opportunity, took a risk, designed a restaurant and fast food concept and prepared to serve the community tasty meals that would satisfy local cravings.  They worked hard, respected customers and employees and earned a reputation as fair-minded businessmen, responsible citizens, and mentors to their workforce, many of whom continue to work for the Company today.

Today, there are twenty-five Zippy's locations in Hawaii that are thriving along with Napoleon's Bakery, Osaka Okazuya, Kahala Sushi, Food Solutions International, A Catered Experience and ACE Express.  These entities are guided by our parent company, FCH Enterprises, Inc.

Working at FCH Enterprises, Inc. is more than a job with tasks to be performed.  Joining the ohana is about being welcomed into a family of more than 2,500 friends who make it a priority to take care of each other.  It is about feeling a sense of belonging, and a spirit of cheer where you can learn, share your personal experiences, actively contribute ideas to our future development and, fulfill career development goals.
