About Hawaii Thrive


Your Online Guide to the Best Local Businesses in Hawaii!

With a vibrant year-round business community led by a diverse set of owners and managers, you are sure to find a local business listed on Hawaii Thrives to meet your needs.

When Hawaii Thrive began, we sought to encompass the “Shop Local” movement with something more – the valued tradition of Ohana.

So, our name represents more than just a list of businesses.

Hawaii Thrive is a call to action for businesses, residents, organizations, and tourists to support our local economy and community.

When you shop at a local independently owned business:

68% of every dollar gets reinvested in the community.

Local chains, 43% reinvested.

Help us celebrate Hawaii’s community and culture by shopping at locally owned businesses.
