ABC Stores' tagline is "The Store With Aloha," offering foods and beverages with a Hawaiian flavor. The first ABC Store opened in 1964. The founder chose a name that everyone could remember.

The chain, operated by MNS Ltd., also has locations in Nevada, Guam and Saipan (in the Northern Mariana Islands).

Stores stock chilled beverages, snacks, Hawaiian treats and grocery items. Its foodservice program serves fresh sushi, made-to-order sandwiches and salads, and cut fruit such as papaya, pineapple and mango. Fresh Kona coffee is available at the coffee bar.

The merchandise selection is tailored to the tourist trade, with clothing, jewelry, bath products and souvenirs updated regularly. Many shops feature an open entrance to better draw in customers. Some locations have a wine-tasting section.

For benchmarking purposes, store counts are as of Jan. 1, 2021.
