About Us

Welcome to the home page of the Hawaii Island Regional Business Directories. Our history goes back 10 years starting with The North Kohala Business Directory serving the communities of Hawi and Kapa’au. The directory has become a valuable resource and somewhat of a tradition.  It was created so residents would have a quick and easy way to find local businesses and businesses would have an affordable way to reach their target market. 

Residents love it! The layout makes it quick and easy to locate businesses serving their area. And, since it only comes out once a year, most people keep it by their phone until the next year’s edition comes out.  Some even keep back copies!

Business owners love it too because it’s an affordable way to be seen by the people who need their product or services. Even though it’s a local publication, it’s beautifully printed in full-color and they’re proud to be listed in it. 

Directories are delivered free to all postal patrons in the community they represent.  Complimentary copies are given to the concierges at the resort hotels along the Kohala Coast.

Going forward, our mission is to create additional community-based directories that will serve the needs of both residents and business owners. This includes Waimea as well as other areas of the island that we believe would benefit from this valuable resource.
