Five Things You’ll See When Three’s Caters an Event

Our catering operation began as the backbone of our business!  It helps to not only support, but also strengthen our success to this day.  So we wanted to share five things you’re likely to notice when Three’s Catering is on the scene!

1)  Fresh Food & Quality Ingredients

Like you’ll find on our breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour menus at Three’s Bar & Grill, our diverse catering options are packed full of top-notch ingredients!  We go local whenever possible with our proteins and produce, and take pride in all we have to offer our catering clients, from freshly-picked Kumu Farms field greens to locally-caught Ahi tuna to grass-fed Hawaiian beef!

2)  Smiles!

Our well-trained team knows how to work together with precision, positivity and professionalism.  We’re a full-service catering company, meaning we have event-planning expertise that can innovate and coordinate, from the seed of an idea to day-of festivities in full bloom.  Customer service is a priority, and we know how to connect and collaborate with other vendors and partners to make every event a success!

3)  A Menu with YOU in Mind

In the mood for sushi? Want to feature a whole roasted pig station?  Need to feed hundreds on a budget?  Three’s Catering can customize our services to meet your needs, no matter if you’re hosting an intimate family gathering, casual business luncheon or lavish wedding.  We can even arrange for our food truck to roll up on your event!

3)  Whales?!  

Well, not all the time…but you may get a glimpse when you climb aboard a Pacific Whale Foundation boat!  Snorkel fun, Island Rhythms reggae cruise, sunset dinner trip, you name it.  All the food you enjoy comes from us, and we have a team dedicated to crafting those delicious eats on a daily basis!  If it’s not humpback whale season, you’ll at least savor a high-seas adventure, epic food and maybe a stunning sunset!

5)  Familiar Faces

We build long-lasting relationships with our clients and strive for success, so oftentimes we cater events more than once, or even on a regular basis.  For instance, the Maui Arts and Cultural Center was our very first client, and we continue to partner with the MACC at ongoing shows and concerts where you’re likely to see Three’s food truck; the health and wellness session with Oprah Winfrey in June; and Maui Calls dining and wine event, which celebrates plantation days on Friday, August 18 this year.

There are oh-so-many other reasons we’re stoked on Three’s Catering, but this list gives you a glimpse of why we’re so proud of our team, and grateful for our clients, vendor partners and community support!

 

Three’s Pūpūs are Named “The Best” on Maui. Here’s Why!

It’s been a great few weeks here at Three’s.  We’ve been delivering on some epic catering events, enjoyed an amazing Food Network debut and now, we’re stoked to be voted Best Pūpūs from MauiTime.  Doesn’t good news come in “Three’s?”

Going out for pūpūs, Hawai‘i’s word for appetizers or tapas, is a longstanding tradition in our state.  We’ve crafted our diverse pūpū menu to appeal to everyone.  It’s value-driven, fun and chef-inspired; with everything from wings and quesadillas to fresh-shucked oysters and sushi! We offer great deals on them during Three’s double happy hours, between 3 and 6 p.m. and again from 9 to 10 p.m., seven days a week!!

So here are a few of the favorites:

Kalua Pork Quesadilla

Kalua Pork Quesadilla, a longtime favorite on Three’s pūpūs menu.


It’s an original — our very first menu item, in fact!  The BBQ Kalua Pork Quesadilla features spiced Maui Gold pineapple and mango chutney, cilantro aioli and peanut ginger slaw. We rolled out this item at a wedding expo back in 2008, when we had just started our catering company. It’s near and dear to our hearts and is a real crowd pleaser. It’s sweet, smoky, and of course, CHEESY!!

Bacon-fried Brussel Sprouts

Bacon-fried Brussel Sprouts, available at Three’s and featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives!

Another must-try appetizer is our Bacon-fried Brussel Sprouts.  Seriously, give ’em a shot! Brussel sprouts are a hot item on the trendy foodie scene, so we wanted to reinvent our own version.  These brussels are wok-fried with bacon, garlic, ginger and carrots, then glazed with kimchee-balsamic and garnished with shaved Parmesan.  They’re SO addicting, you may even catch a glimpse of them on our Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives episode this Friday, July 21 at 6 p.m.!!

Panko-crusted Ahi Roll

Panko-crusted Ahi Roll, among the top appetizers at Three’s Bar & Grill.


We’re known for our epic sushi at happy hour, but one item that definitely defines us is our Panko-crusted Ahi Roll.  It’s a fresh sushi roll with local tuna, avocado and cucumber,  panko-breaded and flash-fried, served over a Thai curry butter sauce and drizzled with unagi glaze.  It’s crazy yummy!!

The list of deliciousness goes on to include items like Sweet & Spicy Lettuce Wraps, Hurricane Fries, Coconut-crusted Shrimp, Fish Tacos and Three’s Wings.

And what better place to enjoy those pūpūs than in our newly-renovated Surf Lounge?!  Our bar was recently extended and the whole space was revamped with 15 additional seats and more T.V. screens to give you more room to enjoy your food and drinks.

The MauiTime awards are voted on by our community.  We’re honored to feel the love, because it tells us people are stoked on our food.  By the way, it’s worth mentioning our sister eatery in Kīhei, Fork & Salad, just won Best New Restaurant, getting the news on its one-year birthday!  At Three’s, we’ve worked really hard to create a very special happy hour, which won Best on Maui two years in a row, along with many runner-up mentions.  It’s nice to know our pūpū menu gets that sort of recognition.

Our staff deserves a huge shout-out.  Every one of our employees, from our kitchen to front-of-the-house to bar staff, has helped build Three’s into what it is today. They all contribute in their own ways, whether sharing ideas for the day’s next special, getting delicious food to your table efficiently, or crafting hundreds of cocktails at the bar during happy hour, our team is straight-up amazing!!  Thanks to them, and thanks to YOU, our loyal customers, for your continued support!

Three's Photo Shoot

Travis Morrin, Cody Christopher, and Jaron Blosser discovered they share a fanatic enthusiasm for surf while working together at a top local restaurant six years ago. While surfing together around Maui they dreamt up the idea to start their own catering business using their regarded culinary school training and experience so they could surf whenever they wanted. Three’s Catering was launched in 2009 using a rented warehouse and their old trucks. In a few short months, their unexpected success had them looking for permanent kitchen space, and they opened a restaurant in the current Three’s Bar & Grill location in Kihei’s Kalama Village where their menu has evolved incorporating the three chefs’ three cuisines – Hawaiian, Southwestern and Pacific Rim. Three’s is all about great food with locally sourced ingredients, creating memories, and the casual island lifestyle that these friends enjoy everyday.

We have been truly honored to serve the food we love on the island we love. Our loyal patrons and dedicated team deserve a huge MAHALO for helping us reach this milestone.” says Chef Owner Travis Morrin. 

“We truly are grateful for the support that we have received from our community over the past 5 years. We look forward to many more exciting years to come” says Chef Owner Jaron Blosser.
