Who we are

Ever since we visited an Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice shop for the very first time, we immediately fell in love with the product, the brand and its whole team.

From then, we maintained our relationship with Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice and recently, as we were offered the exclusivity for the brand’s stores and expansion compromising Florida’s Gulf coast, without hesitation, we said yes.

Therefore, Ferret Hospitality, a Limited Liability Company, was founded. The Company was formed in April 2022 and is registered in the state of Florida.

Ferret Hospitality is owned by Alexander Prietz, a national of Germany, and an experienced and accomplished CEO and business developer who is excited to bring the Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice brand to Florida.

Every guest is extremely important to us, tremendously appreciated and treated like family.

Products 03

Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice is GOURMET, all that we do is special.

EVERY step involved with hand- crafting an Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave ice was purposefully designed over time through tried and tested methods to ensure that the product delivered to our guests is unlike anything they have ever experienced or tasted.

Our Shave Ice produced from ice blocks made in house with Ultra Purified water and using our unique packing style results in a frozen treat that is not crunchy, not wet or slushy but smooth and incredibly soft.


Every one of our home made syrups is made according to Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice own recipes. The premium ingredients ensure a line of syrups that are true to taste with bold “punch you in the mouth” flavor. Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice creates syrups that people crave and that are not found anywhere else.

Our gourmet add on’s such as ice cream, mochi, and toasted coconut are either made by Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice or sourced from the best Maui has to offer.

Our process, our ingredients, our Aloha is unmatched.

First and foremost:
Happy customers
having fun!

what our objectives are



Besides our primary goal of making our guests happy we are aiming to continue Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice success story.

They opened their first shop in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii, in 2008. Until 2018, Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice spread ALOHATUDE across Hawaii with 8 stores in total, both on Maui and on the Island of Hawai‘i, both on their own behalf and with franchisees. In 2020, the brand opened its production and distribution center in Vancouver, Washington. In 2021, the brand opened its 9th store in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii.

In 2022, a franchise partner will open the 10th location, that will also be the very first Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice shop on US mainland in Hollywood, California.

And now, we intend to pursue their expansion success on the US mainland as well. Our intermediate objective is to open and to operate the subsequent Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice stores within our expansion area from Clearwater to Naples within the upcoming 5 years. Furthermore, we intend to spread Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice ALOHATUDE across Florida’s whole Gulf coast and far beyond!
