small business of the year award winner

Congratulations to Ian Burke and Patrick Dours of Rodeo General Store!

We would like to give a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Ian Burke and Patrick Dours of Rodeo General Store in Makawao, Maui for winning the Small Business of the Year Award  on Tuesday December 8, 2020. Ian and Patrick were nominated by Employers Options.

After taking over ownership of the Rodeo General Store in November 2019, they listened to the needs of their Upcountry neighbors to restore their neighborhood grocery store to its historical role as a place for good local food at a good value

Despite losing significant revenue during the pandemic, the Rodeo kept the majority of their staff employed at pre-pandemic levels.

As a long time gathering place in the heart of Makawao town, the Rodeo is proud to know many of their friends and neighbors by name when they come in daily. The Rodeo implemented kupuna hours and delivery for folks who were staying at home during the pandemic, and their staff frequently goes out of their way to find or special order items for their customers.

Keep up the good work!
