Three’s Humble Beginnings
Cody Christopher, Travis Morrin, and Jaron Blosser were all working at a top Maui restaurant when they discovered their shared passion for surfing. The three friends would often go surfing together, and it was during one of these trips that they came up with the idea to start their own catering business using their respective culinary school training and experience.
They figured that if they were their own bosses, they could surf whenever they wanted. And so, in 2009, Three’s Catering was born. The three friends rented a warehouse and used their old trucks to get started.
Their business quickly took off, and within a few short months, they were looking for permanent kitchen space. They opened their first restaurant in the current Three’s Bar & Grill location in Kihei’s Kalama Village where their menu has evolved to incorporate the three chefs’ three cuisines – Hawaiian, Southwestern, and Pacific Rim. Three’s is all about great food with locally sourced ingredients, creating memories, and the casual island lifestyle that these friends enjoy every day.
