O

n June 7, 2011 we celebrated our one-year anniversary as the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. In our first year, we reached many milestones and continued to evolve as we delivered information in more formats than

ever before. Readership of our many products continues to grow, which may be one of the reasons we had a record-breaking number of “Hawaii’s Best” ballots completed and returned. Those listed in this publication should be proud that our readers believe so

much in what you provide and how you deliver excellence and value. Whether you were first, second or third, you should be proud to be part of this exclusive group. We would like to thank our Star-Advertiser readers (more than 500,000 every week), whose votes continue to make “Hawaii’s Best” an award sincerely chosen by the people. It is an honor for these businesses and services to be recognized by their peers, and it is our pleasure to present them as the “cream of the crop” for 2011. We would also like to thank our Star-Advertiser team that tirelessly counted the thousands of ballots. It is important to us that we maintain the best integrity we can by allowing only original ballots, and making this a true indication of our readers’ choices. We hope this year’s compilation of “Hawaii’s Best” will serve as a great guidebook and keepsake that showcases all that the Islands have to offer. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you for all your brilliant work. Sincerely,

HAWAII’S BEST 2011

Business Still Blooming For Island Florist

A

rose by any name may smell just as sweet, but Hawaii residents know a rose from Watanabe Floral is guaranteed to be the freshest pick of the bunch, which is why the public has voted the local company Hawaii’s “Best Florist” multiple times, including 1607 Hart St. this year. 832-9360 “We understand our position in the M-F, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. community and Saturday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m. work tirelessly to Closed Sunday make a positive impact with those www.watanabefloral.com around us,” said Monty Pereira, sales and marketing director. “We relish the opportunity to use our creativity to create something special for our guests.” Started in 1945 by Ernest and Sue Watanabe, Watanabe Floral Inc. has blossomed

Watanabe Floral, Inc.

over the years from rose growers and wholesalers to a full-service floral operation with more than 60 employees, including a design team of 10 literally assembled from all over the world. Though it no longer grows its own products, the company specializes in weddings, corporate and gala events, celebratory and sympathy work, and everyday cut flowers. In fact, with two stand-alone locations in Waipahu and Honolulu, as well as clients that include Sam’s Club, Walmart, Costco, Foodland, Polynesian Cultural Center, Watabe Weddings, Target and Hyatt Regency Waikiki, you can expect that that bouquet you purchased or lei you received was created by the folks at Watanabe Floral. “There is still nothing like seeing the smile on someone’s face when they receive flowers — that is priceless!” said Pereira, who joined the company in 1997. “We try our best, in all decisions that we make, to show appreciation for each and every person who chooses to spend their hard-earned money at Watanabe Floral.” – Sarah Pacheco

Solar Company Turns Up The Heat, Delivers On Promise F

inding new and better ways to serve the community through solar power has been a commitment of Poncho’s Solar Service for the past 23 years. A Hawaiibased, familyowned and operated company, 650 Kakoi St. Poncho’s 422-4266 pioneered the utilization of www.ponchossosolar water larservices.com heating systems in the Islands. Always at the forefront of the latest technological advances, the company also installs photovoltaic systems statewide. Additionally, the company recently introduced a “Hurricane Kit” designed to provide refrigeration and lighting during power outages. The minimum system consists of

Poncho's Solar Service

two photovoltaic solar panels, a freezer/refrigerator, two direct current lights, a storage battery and a charge controller. The larger

systems include more of the same plus an inverter. Given Poncho’s Solar Service’s track record, it’s little wonder why

readers of the Honolulu StarAdvertiser have selected the company No. 1 in the “Best Solar Company” category of Hawaii’s Best Awards. Earlier this year, readers filled out ballots in the open competition, with the only requirement being that readers entering ballots needed to vote for at least 67 of the 133 categories, and vote only once. Poncho’s Solar Service has an A Plus rating from the Better Business Bureau and is a member of the Building Industry Association of Hawaii. For information or to make an appointment for a free estimate, call Poncho’s Solar Service at 422-4266 on Oahu and (855) 417-6527 toll free on the Neighbor Islands. – Connie Wright

The Dentist That Puts ‘Wynn’-ing Smiles On Patients’ Faces

A

trip to the dentist often fills people with anxiety and fear, but visiting the offices of Dr. Wynn H. Okuda is more akin to spending the day at a top-notch spa, a reason why Okuda was voted Hawaii’s 2011 Best Dentist. 3660 Waialae Ave., “After coming to our Suite 315 office, patients don’t see going to the denCall: (808) 734-1099 tist in the same way,” Fax: (808) 735-5047 said Okuda, who originated the revolutionary www.cosmeticdentistryDental Day Spa conhawaii.com cept in 1996. “The Dental Day Spa addresses the multiple sources of dental anxiety to promote calm and relaxation,” Okuda stated. “We enjoy pampering our patients and try to help them forget they’re at the dental office with such comforts as spa amenities, five-star customer service and massage provided by licensed massage therapists.”

Dr. Wynn Okuda

One of only 280 dentists worldwide to be accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Okuda entered the dental profession as a way to use his love of art for a good cause — enhancing the health, function and beauty of teeth to bring out a person’s best smile. “I’ve seen many patients who have avoided going to the dentist for 10 years or more or had other circumstances that drastically affected their dental health. Their smile was broken down severely, and likewise, their spirit and hope were too. But when their smile was repaired, so were their self-image and their ability to communicate confidently with the world,” Okuda said. “By applying my artistic side, he added, “it

allows me to realize a vision for my patients for a renewed and rejuvenated look. This is what makes cosmetic dentistry so exciting to me.” – Sarah Pacheco
