While feasting on incredible dishes and a sweet tasty ice cream sandwich from Uncle's Handmade Ice Cream, we were very fortunate to be able to speak with CHAD MUELLER, Business Director for P.F. Chang's Waikiki. I told him how happy I was to see the restaurant collaborating with a small, local business and allowing visitors and locals an opportunity to taste his ice cream sandwiches.
I was very pleased to hear that P.F. Chang's Hawaii is committed to sourcing local whenever possible and also has plans in the future to work with more small local businesses. I wanted to learn more about what the company has in store for Hawaii and I definitely came to the right person.
Chad is a very knowledgeable man who has a vast history for helping companies to grow and expand. He explained the importance of having great customer service and truly delivering a memorable guest experience in both service and quality of the food. Together as a team, the restaurant participates in local events and are planning events to help the community.
I must say that I'm very excited to showcase P.F. Chang's Hawaii as a small business supporter and can't wait to see more in the near future! This is definitely a company to keep your eye on!
