Our Story
Bob's Tropicals was founded by Bob and Esti Grinpas in 1990 and is located on Kauai, Hawaii.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN: Esti, a tourist from Switzerland, met Bob in 1979 at Waikiki Beach. Initially they were running a Windsurfing School on Oahu, but eventually ended up in Kauai fulfilling Bobís dream to grow tropical flowers. Their 12 acre organic tropical flower farm, initially sold the flowers locally. Then in 1993 the internet propelled Bobís Tropical into the online flower sales and shipping the flowers to the US Mainland. Drop-shipping protea flowers directly from the Maui growers got added, since protea donít grow well in the wet Kapaa weather. Eventually Bob dropped more and more back into his Law office work again, to give the family a stronger financial stability during the time of their childrenís college attendances. Esti expanded the business by adding more growers to the suppliers of flowers: Protea from Maui, Anthurium from the Big Island and leis from Oahu.

TODAY the farm land is used for other purposes and Esti is working with many growers in Hawaii to give her customers the best & freshest flowers. Estiís sincere aim to bring joy and color to Americaís homes, and her 30 year long expertise in growing and shipping tropical flowers, has made Bobís Tropicals a strong, reliable and trustworthy flower business.
