Carey and Brandon Bennett found it difficult to find up-to-date information on happy hours in Hawaii.
So the couple decided to make it easier to find the best deals on food and drinks. Last March they created Happy Hour Hawaii, a website that lists the most up-to-date information about happy hours at restaurants and bars across Hawaii. A few months later, they released GPS-based mobile applications for the Android, iPhone and iPad.
Happy Hour Hawaii boasts more than 185 restaurants and bars on five islands. The app — which is free — has been downloaded more than 15,000 times.
Restaurants input their own data, which means the information on the site should be accurate and up-to-date. You can search happy hours by what you want — say, burgers — and where you’re located. The site or app will provide a list of places, with times, menus, prices and descriptions of food and drinks.
“You can find what you want, where you want, and the time you want, all just by searching,” Carey says.
