About Us

Our Story

HAWAIIAN FIVE-OH is a family-owned business that was founded by Bob Russell in 1992. In 2020, the Russell family sold their business to the Wren family. Almost 30 years ago, when Keith Wren and his father started The Cone, Bob Russell assisted them to develop a business plan that helped The Cone become the success that it has been in West Chester. So, when it came time for the Russell family to sell their business, they knew it would be in excellent hands with the Wren family.

HAWAIIAN FIVE-OH started as a retail store in Lebanon, OH and as the company grew, we added mobile units to serve our customers at popular fairs and festivals throughout the area. Along with the mobile units, Hawaiian Five-OH became distributors for Magic Ice Products out of Stockton, CA, and in 2008 purchased Magic Ice Products from Al Weist and his family thus moving the flavor manufacturing to Lebanon, OH. Hawaiian Five-OH proudly continued to produce the same quality product that Al dedicated his time to develop. Now the business has moved to West Chester, OH where The Cone is located.

Who We Are

HAWAIIAN FIVE-OH offers several product lines that we know to be the best including our gourmet shave ice flavors, slush flavors, sno cone flavors, Hatsuyuki business packages, and several other products to help in making your business successful.

We pledge to never forget the Weist Family’s part in the history of our product. This is an excerpt from their original website:

Magic Ice Products began developing/manufacturing gourmet syrups in 1964 [over 50 years ago] for slush, sno cones, and shave ice (or shaved ice).

Magic Ice Products was the first, and maybe the only one who developed a special formula for shave ice which is quite different from sno cone and fountain syrups.

Magic Ice Products may possibly be the only company that produces syrups for shave ice that doesn’t melt the snow when poured, leaving you a soft, airy, and flavorful treat.

HAWAIIAN FIVE-OH is completely self-funded and debt-free.
