Adoboloco Life! What a ride!
Maui is and always will by our home and original location where we started Adoboloco. All with a single hot sauce born from a homeschool garden. Since establishing the business on Maui in 2011 a lot has changed, kids have grown and our family business has transformed along the way. Who new in 2020 we’d be where we’re at with all of the ups and downs. We’re still a small family business and will continue that way, we love working together as a family.
With some of the changes and growth, in 2014 we moved our Hawaii production to Oahu, Hawaii. Due to major logistical challenges of making a product in Hawaii and learning about shipping inter-island and then to the lower 48 and beyond. To make this work, in 2015 we decided to add production in Oregon (Connection via my wife’s family). Slowly over the last 3 years, we’ve been personally building out a small commercial kitchen in Bend, Oregon. Everyone in the family has had a share in it. We wouldn’t change a thing. Challenges? Absolutely! 2018 almost forced us into bankruptcy… scary to say the least (massive production issues). Blood, sweat and tear equity all the way. Then 2020 hit, we’re so close to completion… we’re going to keep pushing forward. Now we’re in 2021, still here and making really tasty food for all of you to enjoy.
Born in Maui, Enjoyed Everywhere!® Adoboloco is local family owned, made in small batches in Hawaii and Bend, OR.
