Rainbow Drive-In opens doors at new location in Kalihi

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - For plate-lunch lovers, 'Rainbows' can now be seen from Kalihi.

Rainbow Drive-In, the popular eatery that has been a staple for Kapahulu shoppers and Waikiki beach-goers for decades, opened its second location – at the corner of North School Street and Houghtailing Street – on Wednesday.

"I came around the corner and saw the open sign, so I pulled over and I'm going to go in and get something to eat," said Terry Cockett. "I usually go for the chicken."

The expansion is a joint venture between the owners of the Kapahulu location and a newly-formed company called Rainbros LLC, led by local businessmen Theodore Davenport and Charles Jewitt.

Davenport and Jewitt say they approached Rainbow Drive-In with the idea of expanding because they "felt like the drive-in culture is being lost in Hawaii."
