Island Energy just opened Hawaii’s newest Texaco station in Kapolei along with its brand new store: Ama. HI Now host Kanoe Gibson is with Heather Namahoe to talk about the features that make the station unique.

In addition to providing the same great Techron gas in every grade, every gallon, you’ll find Ama at the new Kamokila Texaco. You’ll find quickly that it’s not your typical convenience store and instead offers a more elevated experience. While just as convenient, you’ll get higher quality along with items you wouldn’t necessarily expect — all at a great price.

Ama is the Hawaiian word that describes the outrigger part of a canoe, which provides stability, balance and security. Ama Kapolei is a destination convenience store that offers a unique experience with exceptional service. With distinctive local snacks (made in Hawaii, by Hawaii manufacturers), custom made-to-order pizza, and delicious make-your-own fruit smoothies and cold-press coffee shakes, Ama uniquely provides high-quality food and drink at an affordable price.

Ama even offers cups made from recycled paper. Whenever possible, the store sources recycled or renewable materials for its packaging.

Additionally, the new Texaco location offers E-free gasoline, diesel, and a state-of-the-art car wash.
