Our experience

In 2010, Street Grindz began as a small, humble event planning service, which gave birth to Hawaii’s first large-scale, organized mobile food truck event. Street Grindz sparked the growth of local food truck popularity, which continues to this day. Since then, Street Grindz has now become the state’s largest recurring events management company, now responsible for three of the most popular recurring events on Oahu - Eat the Street, Honolulu Night Market & Art After Dark.

(HONOLULU, HI) Street Grindz will be closing their Makers and Tasters food park on Friday January 27th and moving their popular Eat The Street food event to Kaka‘ako Park. Street Grindz has been operating Makers and Tasters at the former Fisherman's Wharf location, now owned by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs. Ongoing rainouts and bad weather coupled with difficulties acquiring building permits to offer covering for patrons, were cited among several challenges in making the marketplace sustainable.

Since launching in 2015, Makers and Tasters has featured a mix of daily food truck vendors as well as numerous special events, fundraisers and concerts. Over 100 different small businesses have participated at the food park and marketplace, which was a first of its kind on O‘ahu.

“We've been working to grow Honolulu's mobile food industry since 2010 and our goal has always been to provide as much opportunity and exposure for small businesses and entrepreneurs. This change is really a move back to our roots of organizing community events throughout the island. There are many established food vendors and quite a few who are up and coming with a variety of great tastes, craft and products. We want to create events where the public can come and try all the wonderful tastes and creations our local entrepreneurs are coming up with. We encourage everyone to find us and support the many small local businesses we will continue to feature,” said Poni Askew, CEO and Founder of Street Grindz.

The last Eat the Street event at Makers & Tasters will be on January 27th and will have a Lu‘au theme celebrating the 6th year of Eat the Street events. Paul’s Poppers, La Roux, Aloha Pops and 40 other local food vendors will be on hand to mark the occasion. Eat the Street will then debut on February 24th at Kaka’ako Park as a weekly event featuring food vendors, retailers, crafters, packaged goods and locally made items. For leeward residents, Kapolei A Go Go will continue every Tuesday at The Villages of Kapolei for dinner, offering a smaller and more frequent version of Eat the Street.
