The town’s small businesses, laced with neighborhood pride, always try to support each other’s shops and industries. “I honestly try to only shop locally with Kailua vendors,” says Clifton Crawford, owner and general contractor of C&J Contracting and Pacific Pool & Spa. “You can find anything you need right here in this town.” Crawford and his team are a Kailua-born company, and can fix, build or install anything for your outdoor area.

Ian Osborne, owner of Custom Built Cabinetry also grew his company in Kailua.  Osborne has been outfitting Kailua homes with custom-built cabinetry for kitchens, bathrooms, and entertainment centers for more than 20 years.

In the past five years, Kailua town has changed in many ways, with the mostly notable being the new Kailua Town Center. Kaneohe Ranch, Kailua’s largest landowner, designed the new shopping center to hold the same small-town atmosphere but with an updated look. Kimo Steinwascher, Vice President of Leasing and Development, says new shops like Fighting Eel, Executive Chef and the soon-to-open Whole Foods Market will be a beneficial addition to the town’s ambiance. “We’re a small family-owned company that has been in Kailua and owned property in Kailua for more than 20 years,” says Steinwascher. “Many of us are Kailua residents as well, and we try very hard to uphold the integrity and beauty of our community. It’s very honoring and humbling to do a project in our hometown, and we really put a lot of thought and passion into these projects.”
