The JoJo’s Story

The original JoJo’s was started in Waimea in 1992, the same year that Hurricane Iniki landed on Kauai. That store is still there to this day, and still has it’s original JoJo’s sign. JoJo’s goal is unchanged – to offer the ultimate in Shave Ice on Kauai. When we expanded to Hanalei, our second store, we took the JoJo’s traditions and secret recipes along with us and added our smaller ‘Junior’ size, which closely matches the normal serving size of others.

Our Service to the Community

JoJo’s gives HALF of its profit to Makanalani Kids Camp; a very special camp right here on Kauai! This funding helps support Makanalani’s efforts to give less privileged youth, a life-changing experience that enables them to see that there is much more to life than the circumstances in which they live.

The other 50% of JoJo’s profits covers some of the costs for youth outreach and neighborhood youth programs in other parts of our island.


Thanks for helping us get this done!

Don't forget to Ride & Refuel!

Show your Kauai Motorcycle Rental receipt after you take a ride around the Island (or maybe even stop by JoJo’s for a mid-ride treat) and you’ll get 50% off your shave ice order! You can’t beat that!
