The 2016 Small Business Exporter of the Year for Maui County was given to Mr. Pineapple during an awards ceremony in Honolulu. Thank you to our customers, business partners and of course the support of our family.
We are a very small team, one employee to be exact. When we received a phone call from the Small Business Association (SBA) and told we were receiving an award, we just thought it was another solicitor. The last month has been such a humbling experience for all of us and we have you to thank for the wonderful award.
This award really truly shows who you are the customer. Over the years, you have shared with your friends and family to stop by Mr. Pineapple, call or even order online from us. Your loyalty to buying fresh local produce and gifts for export has helped keep us in business all of the years. We don't get it right every time but you stick with us and we do our very best to provide excellent service.
I could go on and on but I will keep this short and to the point. The impact from this has accelerated us onto another level. Our Manager, Jenny whom many of you have met has now the support of two more team members that have joined us in recent weeks.
We will be sharing many exciting announcements with you in the near future. Mr. Pineapple is partnering with other businesses to provide you more of a selection of products throughout the Hawaiian Islands so be on the lookout for new products available to ship right to your door or take on the plane.
Here is a big MAHALO from the Mr. Pineapple Team!
