Choosing a smoothie franchise opportunity is about more than just meeting your business goals. It’s about achieving a certain type of lifestyle for yourself and your ‘ohana — your family.
Having more time with family, or having something fun to do with your family, can make all the difference when it comes to creating the lifestyle of your dreams. So, let’s look at some ways that a Maui Wowi® smoothie franchise can bring a bit of that Hawaiian dream to your ‘ohana.
1. Finding Free Time with Family
“See, the thing that’s great is that it’s very flexible,” says Mary Bigler, a multi-unit franchisee and Area Director for Minnesota. “You can work as little or as much as you want. So, it can be a good part-time business where you maybe only work three or four events a month.”
That flexibility can help you achieve the work/life balance that many people crave. Our signature K-carts go where you need them, so you can decide when and where you want to work.
2. You Can Work with Your Family
Maybe your idea of fun with family is working side by side. We definitely get that. Maui Wowi® smoothie franchises are built on working together like one big ‘ohana.
Maui Wowi® smoothie franchises are the perfect business opportunities for couples who want to share in the workload of a new business. Whether you work the same shift, alternate, or buy multiple units to run simultaneously at different locations, running a business together can be a great way to connect with a spouse on a shared goal.
And, when it’s time for the kids to gain some valuable work experience, a Maui Wowi® smoothie franchise gives them the opportunity to learn how a business is run.
3. It’s a Fun Product for the Whole Family
“I thought it was the best smoothie that I’d ever tasted,” says Mary. She’s been making delicious Maui Wowi® smoothies since 2002, and she still gets excited for the product. “It’s really fun to see people try it for the first time and be surprised at how good it is.”
The quality of our smoothies, and the fun atmosphere of the Maui Wowi® brand, mean you get more than just another smoothie franchise. You get to hand every customer a bit of our Aloha Spirit with every yummy Hawaiian smoothie or coffee you sell. And, you get to bring your family along for the joy.
4. Your Business Can Grow with Your Family
Families change and people’s priorities change along with them. When we’re young we want the ambitious action that comes with running a business. We’re eager to get out there and find our passion. Then, when we’re older, we want to sit back and enjoy the benefits of owning a business. A Maui Wowi® smoothie franchise can grow with you and your family, giving you the best opportunities for wherever you are in your journey.
“When I first started, I was working the weekend pretty much all by myself. But now, if I want a weekend off, I have employees that are out there working. I don’t need to be everywhere anymore,” says Mary. She grew her business to where she didn’t need to be in the driver’s seat all the time, giving her more free time to spend with her children and her grandbabies.
5. Learning Lessons for Business and for Life
Owning a Maui Wowi® smoothie franchise can even have benefits for kids. Barbara Putman, another multi-unit franchisee and Director of Regional Support for areas in Southern California, says it best, “I really believe that my children have learned the value of a dollar. This is a family business. And when they wanted extras like a new computer or a new pair of shoes, they knew that they would have to work for it. They would have to put their name on the schedule if we had an event coming up.”
From teaching kids the value of hard work to giving you more time to take in the joy of relaxation, franchising with Maui Wowi® has the flexibility to take your journey anywhere you want it to go. All that’s left is for you to decide when you want your Maui Wowi® smoothie franchise journey to begin.
