KTA Super Stores - Family owned and operated for over 90 years
KTA Super Stores is a family owned and operated chain of grocery stores in Hawaii. The company was launched in 1916 by Koichi and Taniyo Taniguchi. There are now six locations across the island of Hawaii; the original store location was destroyed by a 1946 tsunami, but had three new stores in the 1950s alone. Today, there are over 800 employees across all locations. In 1994, the "Mountain Apple Brand" was launched as a private label to encourage people to buy products that were produced exclusively in Hawaii. In 2000, the retailer launched "Living in Paradise", a television show that documents the news and projects of the island's communities. The company implemented a Single-Use bag fee to discourage non reusable bags.
