Minit Stop
Daphne Straus has been named manager of the Big Island’s newest Minit Stop location.

The newest Minit Stop location on the Big Island is officially open this weekend.

While an Ohana Fuels station has operated in the area for multiple years, Honoka‘a residents and visitors will now also have access to Minit Stop’s retail and food service offerings on Mamane Street. Minit Stop offerings include hot food, cold drinks, and everyday items.

Minit Stop premiered its hot food items at the new Honoka‘a location on Monday, May 10, ahead of the official Grand Opening on Saturday, May 22.

Set in the middle of historic Honoka‘a Town at 905 Mamane Street, Minit Stop is located near Honoka‘a Park and Honoka‘a High and Intermediate School.

Daphne Straus has been announced as the manager of the new location. From her first management position, she then moved on to manage a larger store at Kohanaiki, and is now the opening manager of Minit Stop’s newest location.


“We are very excited to be opening a new Minit Stop right in the heart of Honoka‘a,” Straus said. “This historic town has really seen a revitalization in the past few years with an increase in local boutiques, contemporary eateries and, of course, the culture and arts that the Honoka‘a People’s Theater brings to the area. We are grateful to be surrounded by so many wonderful local businesses, and we are proud to be of service to the Honoka‘a community.”
