The Blender Heard Around The World!
Founded in 1982 by Jeff & Jill Summerhays, Maui Wowi® Hawaiian was built to provide their ‘ohana (family) a healthy alternative to the sugar and fat laden foods that seemed to be everywhere! Just as passionate, the Summerhays wanted to create a business model that was fun, flexible, and mobile so they could offer their all-natural, fresh fruit smoothies anywhere they felt like traveling.
It was not long before the Aussies learned to crave these ono’licious blends. Over the years, the Summerhays continued to painstakingly perfect their proprietary non-fat yogurt recipes, research exotic locations for their fruit juices, fruit purees, and all-natural flavorings. From tiny, neighborhood fundraisers to high-volume locations like the Salt Palace Convention Center and the Utah State Fair, their fresh fruit smoothies proved to be massively successful.
Bring the Aloha Spirit to Your Smoothie Franchise
Aloha isn’t just our attitude, it’s our way of life!
The native Hawaiian’s call it the Aloha Spirit! And that’s what it’s all about here at Maui Wowi®. We hold this principle in everything we do — it’s the essence of our attitude and our mission. We strive to share this experience with you by offering a world class, low-cost franchise opportunity full of all-natural, fresh fruit smoothies — and plenty of that Aloha Spirit.
No Doubt, It’s All About Aloha
When you think of Hawaii, you probably envision warmth, the smell of tropical flowers, cobalt-blue surf, sandy beaches, fruity drinks, and relaxation. But behind all of the natural beauty that is Hawaii is a vibe, lifestyle, a way of being that is united, harmonious, and true.
A tribe, a team, an ‘ohana
We are capable of reaching exceptional and extraordinary goals. Our tribe mentality differentiates Maui Wowi® from other franchises. It encourages franchisees to work together to help one another succeed. We’re all in this together and with the guidance and support of a dedicated corporate staff, as well as the backing of your peers, the sky’s the limit! By using the power of the ‘ohana, we can take life by the horns and make it not just great, but amazing!
“I love the opportunity to dress casual, be outside, keep the business small or grow it as large as I’d like. I jumped in with both feet and haven’t looked back.” – Dave Bryant | Riverview, Florida
“We can basically choose what kind of events we want to do, what part of the year we want to work. We basically keep busy year round, but the majority of the seasons at the Excel Energy Center are from September all the way to April. That’s when our busiest season is.”
