Our bakery’s name honors two Hawaiian women — Aunties Emily Enos and Emily Kaopua— who shared their culinary talents and aloha with the PCC and Laie for many years.
Before the PCC even opened in 1963, Emily Enos prepared meals for Church College of Hawaii (now BYU-Hawaii) students as well as the labor missionaries who built both CCH and PCC, with such sweet aloha that everybody began calling her “Mom” or “Ma” Enos. After the Center opened, she ran the “American” buffet for our guests. She then hired Emily Kaopua, who ran PCC Food Services and oversaw the preparation and serving of literally millions of meals.
Delicious food served with warm aloha are still hallmarks of our two special Emily’s. And for a quick bite of heaven, visit the Auntie Emily’s kiosk for grab-and-go goodies fresh from their bakery.
