We’re Ben and Danielle. Nice to meet you!
We started HOKENA based on a simple vision. We wanted to create awesome quality products that make life better! On top of this, we were noticing a disconnect between consumers and big brands.
We believe that customers should be treated like family and that their online buying experience should be amazing! However, the more we looked around, the more we noticed that this often wasn’t the case between brands and their customers. So, we decided the best way to change this was to start our own business!
And that’s why we created HOKENA!
Here at HOKENA, we absolutely believe in treating our customers like family! We now feel like we’re living our dream since we get to create amazing products that are designed to improve life, while also running a customer-focused business. And for that, we would like to say thank you! Without your support (even if you’re just reading this on our website), we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. High five!
We’re always coming up with new and exciting product ideas. In fact, “wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a product that…” has become a part of our daily vocabulary! If you’re interested in checking out our latest products, you can view our store on Amazon by clicking below.
HōKENA (pronounced hoe-ken-ah) is actually a word we created that is based on one of our favourite beaches in Hawaii! The beach is actually called Ho‘okena. It’s a special place for us because the Dolphins often come into the bay to rest in the mornings. If you’re lucky, they sometimes come and say hi!
We actually came up with the idea of building our own online business while we were living in Hawaii for a few months. So, it just felt right to base our name on this special place. Hawaii has a special place in our hearts, and we love to be reminded of the ‘Aloha Spirit’ on a daily basis!
