Lynn Nalani Solu, Marjorie & David Hunkins, Charlene Hunkins of Kihei Rent A Car are Maui County's 2022 Small Business Persons of the Year.

After years of working at a rental car agency, David Hunkins started Kihei Rent A Car with his wife, Charlene “Sugar” Hunkins in 1990.  Their success, for over 30 years, comes from a commitment to maintaining reasonable pricing and loyalty from local clients or part-time residents doing repeat business.

Purchasing additional surrounding lots has provided space for servicing the majority of their vehicles on property and an area for detailing cars upon return. It also allowed room for a bigger fleet and an area for selling off their older vehicles.  

Today, David & Charlene are retired and live in Hana, but their twin girls, Lynn and Marjorie have taken over the business.  Marjorie’s sons Matt and Ryan are the third generation poised to take over this family-owned and operated business. Together, they strive to serve and bring the Aloha spirit to the Maui community.
