Signs: Supercuts

Here’s a little peek into the commercial world in Hawaii. These signs illustrate enterprises found here, probably a similar pattern to those in many parts of the world.

Supercuts is a national franchise with locations across the country and elsewhere. It’s a hair salon and, to be honest, I’m scared to go here for fear of getting my hair styled and smothered in ‘product.’

L&L Hawaiian Barbecue is a Hawaiian franchise that started in the islands but, like Supercuts, has spread nationwide and even internationally. I eat at L&L once in a while. It’s pretty good, some dishes better than others, the kind of place you know you can get a decent meal if you’re in a hurry.

Noodle Club is a local enterprise which, I confess, I haven’t been to. But I have been to Village Burger, operated by the same ownership, and they’re very good.

    We have supercuts (great up word) in Australia, too. I always read it as fast and cheap, so I wouldn’t expect style. But I haven’t tried them, either, nor my family.

      I knew they were international. I have no idea how good they are. I just want my hair shorter when I get it cut, but sometimes it’s hard to get just that!

      Hawaiian food is greatly influenced by immigrants who’ve come here from all over. L&L specializes in plate lunches (a take on Japanese bento meals) which have rice, macaroni salad, and an entree such as kalua pork or BBQ chicken barbecued with ‘Hawaiian-style’ sauces. A classic Hawaiian thing is to cook the meat in an imu or earth oven, though I don’t think L&L does that!
