Without the Pacific Gateway Center kitchen incubator Raw Dog Hawaii Organic Local dog feeds could not exist. The resources they provide and the skill of the people who work there along with their caring support make my business possible! Mahalo, Gary

Pacific Gateway Center’s Culinary
Business Incubator has allowed our micro-business to thrive.
It’s equipped kitchens and reasonable rates let the Keiki Lunchbox offer its freshly-made, healthy lunches at a competitive price and so attract the attention of schools we would otherwise not be able to serve.
The staff at the CBI constantly go out of their way to help our business grow, whether it’s through free workshops geared to the needs of a small business or by offering encouragement (and even some shoyu when we’re short!).
We’ve been going strong for 5 years now and have not been ‘in the red’ yet. We credit that to PGC’s Culinary Business Incubator.

Mahalo for all of your help and good will through the years to Ave and the staff!
