Down to Earth Organic & Natural plans a soft opening for its Kaka’ako location in mid-April and a Grand opening mid-May. They are currently hiring with starting pay ranging from $12-$16 per hour. For information visit

The Kaka'ako location will be a 13,000 square foot location on the ground floor of Keauhou Lane at the corner of Keawe St. and Pohukaina St., just a few blocks mauka side of SALT at Our Kaka’ako cultural center. “Our expansion will enable us to provide local, fresh, organic and natural products to residents in an under-served part of Honolulu,” says Mark Fergusson, Down to Earth CEO.

The new location will offer Down to Earth’s largest selection of deli foods, including take-home pizzas, wok fried Asian style bowls, vegetarian sushi, and an array of new salads, all made to order while you watch. There will be sweet potato fries and deep fried multi-colored vegetable chips to accompany items on the sandwich menu, cold pressed juice, and an extended selection of take home soups. The deli will include the company’s acclaimed hot table with delicious entrees and salad bar, fresh juices and smoothies, a great made-to-order sandwich menu, fresh grab-and-go options and a wide variety of tasty desserts made daily.
