Aaron Placourakis - President and CEO
The Aloha State is a community of international hospitality excellence. One of its most celebrated and respected leaders, Aaron Placourakis, is a man whose philosophy embodies the true meaning of good food and service.
Growing up in Alameda, California and hailing from a long line of Greek food merchants,

caliber service, offered in an atmosphere of warmth and in the spirit of generosity and
family. This philosophy extends to his restaurant team who greet you at the door as a
friend, not a customer.
