A new show airing on KHON2 profiles successful Hawaii entrepreneurs. Carole Kai Onouye, executive producer of the show, and Jason Brand, owner of Kunia Country Farms, talked to Wake Up 2day about Hawaii Stars: Kamaaina Business Success Stories.
These specials are four years old and presented by American Savings Bank. “We wanted to showcase the exciting and super successful people who own these prosperous businesses that were started in Hawaii,” explains Onouye.
Brand’s company began operations in 2010, he says, to help Hawaii become food independent in a sustainable manner. He spoke further about his local aquaponic business and about the soon to open Ko Hana Rum distillery in Kunia.
