Dunkin’ Donuts is getting ready for a return to Hawaii, but first, it needs to hire employees.

Aloha Petroleum signed a multi-store development agreement that will bring 15 new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants to Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii Island in the next eight years.

The first restaurant will be located in a new 58,000-square-foot shopping complex on Paiea Street near the Honolulu airport.

“In addition to Dunkin’ Donuts famous donuts and extraordinary coffee, we will also be introducing a local menu that consists of Portuguese sausage, egg and cheese croissant, Spam, egg and cheese croissant, and even yummy guava- and haupia-filled donuts,” said Casie Bui, Aloha Petroleum marketing manager. “We’re really excited for our customers to see how we’ve infused the Hawaiian culture into different elements in both the exterior and interior design of the building.”

Aloha Petroleum broke ground on the nearly $5 million project in February. The complex is scheduled to open this summer with an IHOP restaurant, Aloha Island Mart, and Shell Station.

Before it does, two job fairs will be held to fill 80 job openings for Dunkin’ Donuts, Aloha Island Mart, and Shell Station.

They will take place on Saturday, May 20, and Saturday, June 3, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Airport Honolulu Hotel.

A variety of positions are available, including crewmember positions starting at $10 per hour, and bakers and shift leaders at $11 per hour. Interviews will be conducted on site, and computers are made available for applicants to apply online.

Managerial positions offer competitive salaries and a bonus program. All employee benefits include educational tuition reimbursement, HMSA medical insurance, dental insurance, flexible schedules, holiday pay, and more.

For priority consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply online at alohagas.com.
