A week or so ago I saw a thread that someone had bumped up that had a picture of the Coco Joe's factory. I've looked and now I can't locate the picture or the thread. I tried using the search function and I still can't find what I'm looking for. There's a lot of stuff about Coco Joe's on here and I'm being lazy. Much thanks to anyone that can point me back to that thread I'm looking for. I'm looking for a picture of the Coco Joe's factory.

For those seriously interested in CoCo Joe's history, the best source would probably be their in-house newsletter "The Lava Flow". I bet there is an ex-employee in Oahu somewhere who kept them all in a folder.

Here are pages from two 1967 newsletters, from which I culled the fact that the company started in 1961



Here's a photo of company president Don Gallacher (on the left) at JC Penney's at the Ala Moana Center:
