L & L continues its international expansion with the opening of its first store in China over the weekend.  Decorated with visuals from Hawaii, the store represents the Hawaii franchise’s farthest endeavor as an Hawaii-based international restaurant franchise.

The first China L & L is located in the Fumen province and offers many of the plate lunch offerings found in Hawaii with some minor changes.  “We are offering the same L & L core menu in our China location, but we’re also adjusting it slightly to tailor towards the local Fumen taste palate,” says Eddie Flores, President  & CEO of L & L Drive-Inn.  According to Flores, some of these adjustments include offering soup with the dishes and adding as much as 30% local Fumen China dishes.  To ensure quality control, Eddie sent L & L Executive Chef Raymond Cheng to oversee the opening process.  “Our L & L executive chef spent more than 2 weeks developing and making sure the food transfers well to the area.”

The China L & L marks L & L’s third store in Asia.  The other two locations in Asia are located in Japan in the Tokyo and Kawasaki prefectures.  New Zealand will also be reopening in the coming months.
