Whether you’re looking for an escape from Corporate America or looking for a part-time side hustle, Maui Wowi® is a great opportunity for aspiring business owners. With our mobile franchise concept, you’re able to seek out exciting and different venues throughout your city every day of the week, or keep it as nothing more than a weekend gig at just one great venue.
Either way, it’s not just fulfilling to call yourself a business owner but so much fun, especially with Maui Wowi®. Seriously, we make owning a business feel like a permanent vacation. Our franchisees wear Hawaiian shirts, flip flops and can often be found playing in a sandbox.
Why Own a Mobile Business?
Nowadays, there’s a fleet of food and drink trucks at most major events, locally and nationwide. There’s no doubt today’s generation loves unconventional (and perfectly instagramable) cuisine. Not to mention, Millennials are also known as the “food truck generation,” and they can’t get enough of this urban way of eating. It’s clear the trend is here to stay.
But the most significant reason mobile businesses are growing in popularity is they require a comparatively low initial capital investment compared to that of a brick-and-mortar restaurant (which can sometimes mean less risk, too). Statistic Brain says start-up costs usually run from $100,000 or less (Maui Wowi®’s total initial investment starts at $86,400). The mobile business itself can even serve as a billboard, so you’ll automatically save on advertising.
Mobility allows business owners the opportunity to constantly grow their following. It also encourages social media engagement because followers want to stay on top of the business’ location. It’s the reason why in this day and age, we’re seeing more and more mobile food businesses emerge.
At Maui Wowi®, we understand the power of mobility. Even better, our company was built on the premise that business should be fun, flexible and mobile. See our most popular mobile business models below:
1) Ka’anapali Cart
Our Ka’anapali Cart option, also known as the K-Cart, is our most sought-after business model for a reason — it’s flexible. You can utilize it at both indoor and outdoor events. Claim a full-time space like a sports area, or run your business on a part-time basis, traveling from event to event (fundraisers, concerts, fairs, expos, etc.)
2) Concession Trailer
The Maui Wowi® Concession Trailer is built specifically for outdoor use and is equipped with two smoothie stations and an area for brewing. The trailer is bigger than our one-of-a-kind K-carts but smaller than our full-size food truck.
3) Food Truck
Speaking of which, our Food Truck option is the newest addition to our franchise family. This paradise on wheels is the life of every party. It’s extremely spacious and is equipped with all the smoothie essentials and a full coffee espresso bar.
Is Owning a Mobile Business Right for You?
At Maui Wowi®, we offer more than a healthy alternative to sugary, fat-laden foods by serving all-natural, fresh-fruit smoothies and Hawaiian coffees; we give aspiring entrepreneurs an opportunity to fulfill their dreams. It’s one of our favorite parts about our business!
If you have the following qualities, Maui Wowi® might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for:
Highly self-motivated and self-reflective
Focused & go-getter attitude
Willing to fail (and get back up again)
Willing to try everything
No issues asking for help
Value a strong peer network
Great networking skills
In our experience, our most successful franchisees share the characteristics mentioned above. If you do too, maybe it’s time you take the first step toward being your own boss. And there’s no better way to do it than having fun while you’re at it. But don’t take our word for it; hear it from our franchisees yourself. Until next time, Aloha!
