Aloha Pitch N Putt changes name to Aloha Mini Golf & Shave Ice
Aloha Mini Golf & Shave Ice is a family entertainment center dedicated to providing fun, affordable enjoyment in a park-like service-first atmosphere. Founded in 2012, ALOHA has quickly gained a reputation as a premier flavored shave ice establishment while making significant efforts to restore the mini golf course. THE NEWEST HIT IS THE Golf Flight Range. Replacing the old, dysfunctional batting cage, the golf flight range compliments the peaceful “vacation-like” atmosphere perfectly. Highlighted by “Tee Line Turf” that can hold a regular wooden tee, the plush golf driving mats are the finest in the industry – no heavy ‘wrist shock’ into cheap turf over concrete.
For years the mini golf course was ignored while successive ownerships fought flooding issues associated with the batting cage. As costs to maintain the batting cage soared, its viability was largely ignored due to a great location and heavy customer traffic. After two unsuccessful seasons trying to correct the batting cage performance, the dilapidated equipment was removed from the cages and at the same time, many of the mini golf holes were re-surfaced.
Founded in 2012, the new “Aloha Mini Golf & Shave Ice” retired the aging batting cage and replaced the revenue stream by offering “Hawaiian Shave Ice”. With hand-made syrups, using pure cane sugar and a premium block ice shaver, ALOHA’s shave ice was an instant hit. Starting with just 5 flavors in 2012, the shave ice stand now offers over 50 delicious flavors and regularly hosts birthday parties specifically because the kids all want ALOHA’s incredible shave ice.
New turf on the mini golf holes and the addition of Hawaiian shave ice helped the business turn the corner, but still had no revenue stream in the old batting cage. By retro-fitting the cage to offer golf, the company was able to create a 3rd low-overhead service, offering customers a high level of perceived value for a very low price.
With plans for additions, such as sand volleyball, a Tiki-bar and outdoor BBQ, the ambitious future ofAloha Mini Golf & Shave Ice is bright.
