The owners of the Pineapple Grill and Plantation House restaurants on Maui are forming a 50-50 partnership effective Jan. 1.
The Pineapple Grill in Kapalua is owned by David and Lesley Cohn, and is part of the Cohn Restaurant Group based in San Diego. The Plantation House, owned by George and Hemma Mackin, is located in Lahaina.
Cohn Restaurant Group will take over management and operations of both restaurants under the partnership agreement, said Chris Kaiwi, general manager of the Pineapple Grill.
None of the employees at either restaurant will be affected by the partnership, Kaiwi said.
