WHAT OUR ADVERTISERS SAY...
"Advertising in the Hawaii Filipino Chronicle helped increase my business. I managed to get the largest response second only to word of mouth."
—KERMIT BROWN JR., Browns Driving School
"People know where we are and who we are and people recognized that I opened my own business, as a result of advertising in the Chronicle."
—ROLAND CASAMINA, President, House of Finance
"The tax side of the business benefited through the advertisement during the tax season. We have received several calls saying that they saw my picture in the paper (the Hawaii Filipino Chronicle), and of course, calls that asked about our services, too. We gained new clients and have met people we never knew before."
