Makena resort rezoning

In 2004, in the face of fierce environmental opposition, Makena Resort Corp.engaged TLC PR to design and implement an aggressive grassroots and media campaign designed to rally support for the rezoning of its property as a part of its master plan and long-term build out.


TLC PR was selected by Starbucks Hawai‘i to work strategically with the marketing department to create visibility and to drive traffic into stores.

Our method was to secure media coverage and to create “buzz.” Highlights of our achievements included numerous appearances on television morning shows—both in-studio and live at Starbucks’ sites. These included new product tastings, interviews of Starbucks executives and coverage of Starbucks-sponsored events.
