    Its a shame no one from Hawaii or a pacific islander decent was chosen.

      Hi Aloma!

      Thanks for your comment. Three of the winners are of Hawaiian or Pacific Island descent (Lan Ha, Joseph Fontelera, and Rohani Foulkes), but unfortunately, we didn’t receive any qualifying applications for businesses physically located in Hawaii, despite our outreach efforts! With that said, 10 inspirational, and culturally diverse, AAPI Restaurant Owners throughout the U.S. were chosen, so a big contratulations goes out to all of them! We are so excited to share this opportunity!
