Business as Usual

This year, in honor of the 25th anniversary of Maui Nō Ka ‘Oi, we are celebrating beloved local businesses that have stood the test of time. Here are four of our favorites.

Step into Maui Marble & Granite’s 2,200-square-foot showroom in Wailuku, and you’ll be immediately inspired to remodel your kitchen — or maybe a bathroom (or two). Husband-and-wife duo Lee and Patti Gardner guide clients through the process: Patti, a largely self-taught stone expert with a keen eye for design, helps them select their stone, then Lee, a master fabricator, makes their dream home project a reality. These days, Zoom technology is helpful, allowing clients to see inventory in real time. “Our customers feel more confident about decisions when they actually see what they’re getting,” Patti explains.

MM&G makes everything from simple backsplashes to half-ton countertops. “Right now, we’re [doing] a kitchen installation on the eighth floor of a condo in Kā‘anapali,” says Patti. “We’ll use a crane to lift the slab over the lānai and will bring it inside through the sliding-glass doors.”
