Businesses who receive HRC Business Holiday Cards can give them to their employees. These preloaded debit cards can be used at all restaurants, eateries, taverns, fast food establishments and bars in Hawaii that accept Debit MasterCard and will be valid through June 30, 2022.
“Last year, the Hawaii Restaurant Card program resulted in more than $75 million of direct impact to our local food supply chain — including restaurants, farmers, fishermen, ranchers, producers and distributors — which all benefited from this statewide economic stimulus initiative. Today, I hope businesses will consider purchasing Hawaii Restaurant Cards for their holiday gifts. This will ensure that our money stays in the islands and benefits our local community.”Gov. David Ige
For orders placed and received by Nov. 26, businesses will receive their cards by Dec. 10. For orders received between Nov. 26 and Dec. 10, cards will be delivered by Dec. 31.
