MCC Coffee Group founders and Peet’s Coffee & Tea Hawaii licensed partners Chipper Pastron and Sal Casola, Jr. have deep routes in Hawaii having opened their first Honolulu restaurant in 1988 Rose City Diner in restaurant row. Currently they have two other Peet’s locations, both at the Sheraton Waikiki, and are excited to welcome local “Peetniks” to the new store.
