Zippy’s next stop…Carson, CA

CARSON, CA (Long Beach Tribune) – 2nd stop: Carson, CA!

Zippy’s, Hawaii’s favorite local eatery, is not only expanding to Las Vegas, but coming to Southern California as well, the company announced on Tuesday.

The new Zippy’s will be the 26th restaurant and the second to open on the mainland.

But don’t worry, it will still serve up favorite menu items, including its signature chili and Zip Pac bentos.

“For many years, we have been asked to expand Zippy’s to the mainland, and we believe that the Zippy’s brand will be well received in Southern California as well” said Zippy’s CEO Jason Higa, in a statement. “The city is a natural fit for our brand given the significant number of Hawaii transplants in the area and we believe it is the ideal choice for our second location outside of Hawaii.”

The search for the exact location has come to a conclusion and will break ground across from the Carson Civic Center.

Zippy’s first opened more than 50 years ago and has become a household name ever since.
