In February 2022, Maui County launched “MAUI NUI FIRST,” a community-wide, collaborative effort to support our small businesses on Maui, Moloka‘i and Lana‘i. The purpose of Maui Nui First is to strengthen our islands’ economy by encouraging residents and visitors to think, support, and buy from local businesses FIRST.

The Maui Nui First program is coordinated and supported by the County of Maui Office of Economic Development.

We extend a big mahalo to the following supporters:

The voluntary “Supporters” mentioned above have agreed to lend their support of the Maui Nui First program in an effort to support local businesses in Maui County.

A note From the kokua for Maui designer

This project was both heartfelt and personal, especially for our lead designer, who's called Lāhainā home for the past 19 years. Tragically, she lost her own home in the devastating August fires, and many of our family and friends owned or worked at businesses affected by the fires. We felt honored to be chosen to work on this important initiative, supporting local businesses and events while aiding the community in healing and moving forward together.
