By Staff | Mar 29, 2018

WAIKAPU – The sixth annual “Masters of Retail Success in Maui” event will be held on Wednesday, April 4, in the Nahele Banquet Room at Kahili Golf Course and will feature the success stories of five local Maui businesses.

This year’s event has a special focus on Maui-based agribusinesses and businesses that support the ecosystem of local farmers and ranchers.

At Maui Business Brainstormer’s signature event for 2018, exemplars from the Maui business community will share their business knowledge and motivation. The featured business owners and leaders will “talk story” about their road to success and the challenges of running a business on Maui.

The 2018 lineup includes five businesses ranging from restaurant to retail to ranching to farming, all rooted in local culture and traditions. The featured businesses include Kihei Caffe (Barry Allison); Maui Cattle Company (Alex Franco); Native Intelligence (Kapono’aikaulikeikeao Molitau); Oko’a Farms (Ryan Earehart); and Two Chicks in a Hammock (Kat Crosby and Michelle Jones).

John Hau’oli Tomoso and Lori Fisher will emcee the evening’s agenda. Attendees typically represent small business owners from across Maui County.

Tomoso said, “Attendees will also be reminded about ways to incorporate Hawaiian culture and values to help balance the day-to-day operations of a business driven by dreams and aspirations for the success of future family generations.”

The public is invited to the dinner event, which begins at 5:15 p.m. MBB members are eligible for a discounted dinner price. Register online to attend the dinner event at www.meetup.com/MauiBusinessBrainstormers.
