Eddie Flores Jr. named head of Chinese Chamber of Commerce

    Eddie Flores, owner of L&L, handed out lunches to a line that went snaking throughout the Keeaumoku Walmart store in February 2006. Each lunch cost 76 cents with proceeds going to benefit Goodwill Industries.

Eddie Flores Jr., president and chief executive officer of L & L Franchise Inc., will be the new head of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii.

He will be installed as president at the 104th Chinese Chamber Installation Banquet on May 28 at the Empress Restaurant.

Flores, who grew up in Hong Kong and moved to Hawaii at age 16, is the founder of L & L Hawaiian Barbecue, a business he started with partner Johnson Kam in 1976. The restaurant has nearly 200 locations throughout the United States, China, New Zealand, Japan, Guam and Indonesia with new outlets opening in Malaysia and Philippines later this year.

The Chamber has worked with the state in promoting investment missions to Taiwan, Hong Kong and China for more than a century. Flores will be leading a trade and cultural tour to Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Suzhou and Wuzhen.
