    Pros

    Kona Grills Corporate office has a lively, upbeat, happy atmosphere that spreads infectiously through the restaurant locations. The corporate staff truly cares about their location employees and making sure that they have every available resource needed. The communication between the corporate office and site locations is impeccable and everyone works together with a smile. The entire staff has the mindset to get the job done, get it done with accuracy, and have fun while doing it in a professional manner. Great group of managers and support staff. I would work with these lovely individuals again in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    The corporate office is very small, there is not enough room for the entire support staff, but they are moving into a new office that should give more leg room to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, keep up with the team building and employee appreciation. The staff is obviously loved and it shows in how they pride themselves in their work. I would say to encourage more team building from department to department, that would be the only constructive criticism I could give for Kona.

    I worked at Kona Grill full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great overall corporate company to work for. Constantly is listening to it's people and trying to grow.

    Cons

    Growing too much too fast. Getting itself lost. Wants to open too many stores too quickly that current operations seem to fall off. Spends too much money on things like menus because they don't want to pay upfront for a better product.
