Lending a helping hand to the local businesses, Nick Ponte has created two online directory websites – Hawaii Thrive and We Deliver Maui. The former helps people to find local island businesses offering services and products in their area and the latter offers a similar service for searching for Maui restaurants.
The main purpose behind the creation of Hawaii Thrive was to promote and recognize Hawaiian businesses. The financial repercussions of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, like the slash of tourism to the state, was so dire local businesses in Maui, Hawaii Island, Oahu, and Kauai, were finding it hard to get back on track. To facilitate driving traffic to these businesses during the shutdown, Hawaii Thrive created a platform that allows these businesses to communicate with their audience.
The ultimate goal of every customer is to save money without compromising on the quality of the product. Hawaii Thrive does precisely this by offering a broad range of offers for every business on their platform. Depending on the choice of industry, county, or services, the customers can search on the platform to support local all year long.
We Deliver Maui works around the same concept for offering a list of restaurants or food joints that offer services like home delivery, curbside pickup, or takeout.
The founder of these websites Nick Ponte recently says that these companies will certainly become Hawaii’s one-stop search engine for finding the best local businesses. The easy-to-use user interface of the website makes the searching process easier while the interactive map easily outlines the specifics of what local business is near you.
