In 2014, Kiersten and Krista Gormeley, the founders of Shaka Bowl, moved to the town of Hilo located on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was here where they learned about the “Hawaiian way” and gained the inspiration that would lead to the creation of Shaka Bowl.
In the Fall of 2016, the first Shaka Bowl was opened in Hoboken, NJ with a menu centered around acai, pitaya, poke bowls, and smoothies. The population of Hoboken embraced the Hawaiian way that the sisters had brought to them and the sisters soon expanded their menu and opened a second Hoboken location to cater to the rising demand.
Today, Shaka Bowl offers an array of house-made dishes prepared from fresh, natural ingredients in store daily that cater to every single dietary need. Their expanded menu includes soups, baked goods, toasts, seasonal treats, and more. Shaka Bowl has been featured in Forbes, The Digest, and several other media outlets and now caters for clients such as Bloomingdales, GOAT, Snapchat, Forbes, Shutterstock, and many more. You can now #FindYourShaka at their two locations located in Hoboken, New Jersey.
