Our company started with a barber shop run by Shikano Kamitaki, who came to Hawaii from Japan in the early 1900's. From there, the family opened a dry goods store, and in1951, her children Tadami Kamitaki and Matsuko Mizoguchi joined the Ben Franklin chain and opened up our first Ben Franklin Store in Kahului, Maui.

We have continued to grow over the past 70 years and today have Ben Franklin Crafts and Ace Hardware stores in Hawaii, the Pacific Northwest, and Las Vegas.

Today our business is still growing in new and creative ways.

We have over 450 employees in 4 states and also have reached out overseas to Japan. Our retail stores serve our local neighborhoods. With growing communities just a click away, our business continues to meet these opportunities as we always have over the past 70 years.

E komo mai. Welcome. We invite you to look around our store.
