Minami Tamaki LLP is investigating reports that the popular Hawai‘i Zippy’s Restaurants chain suffered a data breach that has compromised customer privacy. Zippy’s announced on April 27, 2018, that the data breach affected all Zippy’s locations, as well as other affiliated restaurants. Local reports have described the data breach as “massive.”
Zippy’s stated that the information compromised in the data breach involved credit cards and debit cards used between November 23, 2017, and March 29, 2018. In a statement posted on its website, Zippy’s stated that it learned of the data breach on March 9, 2018, and that information impacted may include the cardholders’ names, card numbers, expiration dates, and security codes. The Hawai‘i Office of Consumer Protection has announced that it has opened an investigation into the data breach.
Zippy’s is among the most popular restaurant chains in Hawai‘i, and has been a dining institution for both locals and tourists for decades. Consumers in California and throughout the United States who visited Hawai‘i may be impacted by this data breach, including those who visited the islands over the holidays in late 2017.
