"There's certainly a require for restaurants in the Pearl City area, and using the visibility from the building and surrounding available parking, it is a great site," he said.
INspiration moved out of the creating in mid-June as part of the strategy to consolidate procedures towards the $27 million Honolulu Style Center, an 80,000-square-foot complex - solely owned by Sorensen - which opened in 2007.

Sorensen founded Scan/Line Inc. in 1979, then sold it to a former partner in 1987. He moved to Reno, Nev., and opened a furniture manufacturing company prior to returning towards the islands in 1997 and establishing INspiration at Pearlridge.
Sorensen added that he is relieved that the lawsuits are over.

"What I've learned is that you definitely do not win anything by litigating."
The settlement left Skaaning with 50 percent ownership in INspiration's Vancouver, British Columbia, operations, which he runs with his brother, Steen Skaaning.
"These two businesses are like Thomas' kids, and I know that he's very pleased that he can continue to grow them after what was really a divorce," said Sorensen's attorney, Jim Bickerton.
