Our Culture


As a family run, locally owned business, we believe in treating every member of our staff as ‘ohana. Y. Hata employees enjoy a safe and fun work environment full of events, groups, friends, and of course, food! Our core values shape our commitment to each other, our customers, and our community.

Safe, Fun & Diverse

From our administrative and sales staff to our drivers and forklift operators, to our cashiers and warehouse staff, we work hard to keep our ‘ohana safe and supported. We also work hard to keep our customers safe with proper handling of our products.

Company Events

Sure, we work hard, but we like to have fun too. Movie nights, monthly birthday celebrations, and holiday parties are just a few of the events we celebrate together.

Ohana Lunch

Everyone agrees, ‘ohana lunch day is our favorite day of the week! One part product education, one part fun, and always delicious, once a week our talented corporate chefs feed our entire ‘ohana lunch.

Affinity Clubs

Every member of our ‘ohana feels welcome when they join one of our affinity clubs. Zumba, Korean culture, hiking, singing, and basketball are just some of the activities constantly taking place around Y. Hata.
