New Owner, Same Kālua Pig
KONO’S RESTAURANT ON THE NORTH SHORE HASN’T CHANGED IN 14 YEARS—NOT EVEN ITS SURFING PIG LOGO—DESPITE NEW OWNER.

Last September, Stan Glander took a vacation from his job as the chief operating officer at a hotel company in Philadelphia to visit family he hadn’t met on O‘ahu.
The ending of this story is similar to many others who have spend their vacations in the Islands: He loved it and wanted to stay.
The difference, though, is that he figured out a way to make it happen. Glander now owns a small eatery on the North Shore that’s as popular for its breakfast burritos as it is for its surfing pig logo.
