Building the right team isn’t like building a pyramid; it’s more like building a web. Each thread is connected to another to create one giant support system. Maui Wowi is proud to announce three new threads in our web to help meet the needs of our franchisees as we continue to grow and expand the brand. Meet our new ‘ohana members!

She will also work with franchisees through committees, continuing a long tradition of giving a voice to each owner, and creating programs that benefit the entire system.
