Grand Opening Luau!

Ribbon CuttingOver the weekend, we celebrated the grand opening of our new store in Denver, Colorado in true Hawaiian style. The store, which is in the Lowry community at Hangar 2, is the site of our hands-on franchisee training program and is our first company-owned location.

To celebrate, we threw a luau featuring authentic Polynesian dancers and two hours of free smoothies, coffees, and teas. We had a prize wheel with some amazing giveaway items and thanks to the Photo Love Bus, we had so much fun putting on silly props and taking photos in an original VW Bus.

CollageWe kicked off the event with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Founder Jill Summerhays doing the honors. Once it was all official, we got the party started with some live entertainment. The dancers ranged in ages and put on a fantastic hula show that took us through a journey of the Polynesian Islands. Guests also enjoyed lots of free smoothies and hung out, sipping them in the Colorado sunshine.

We want to send a big Mahalo to everyone who came out to support the new store and our ‘ohana for putting together an amazing day. Maui Wowi looks forward to becoming the Lowry Community’s number one choice for premium Hawaiian coffee and fresh fruit smoothies. Cheers!

The Launch Program Designed for Success!

1627Maui Wowi has an exclusive franchisee launch program which includes the support, guidance, and tools to lead a franchisee to success! With our dedicated team and advanced technology, this launch program will ensure a smooth process for the franchisees to get their business up and running fast. The program, focused on both retail and mobile units, gives franchisees a list of tasks to complete for a successful kickoff event. Detailed instructions on everything from construction equipment, to the cost of a grand opening are provided, plus the franchisee will receive undivided support and attention from the Mainland staff during each step.

To begin the life as a Maui Wowi business owner, each franchisee has 6 days of hands-on training, complete with time to meet one-on-one with vendors, as well as meeting a member of the Franchisee Advisory Council. The franchisees will also get their feet wet with the chance to work an actual event.

At training, the franchisees receive fully loaded iPads, which will digitally organize manuals, guides, intranet systems, and much more. Whether they’re preparing for their first event or opening a store, our step-by-step program will take them through the process. Our launch program includes weekly calls and constant communication to ensure everything goes smoothly.

1628Events and Venues manager, Misty Hartner, is right by the franchisee’s side during the first event, to make sure the transition process runs smoothly.  The Mobile Launch Program is a great way for new business owners to ensure they have all the necessary tools, as well as providing additional training from what was already covered at mainland training. “I believe the best part of the Event Launch Program is that we are able to provide an extra layer of support to the franchisees. For them to know there is someone there to lend an extra hand, answer their questions, and make them feel supported; that’s the mission of this program,” said Misty Hartner. The first event is crucial, and making it a success will ensure a successful business in the future!

1630 “It was extremely beneficial to have a Mainland team member with us. Misty showed us how to best represent Maui Wowi, from set-up to serving smoothies, and everything in between. Any concerns or issues we had were quickly resolved. It would have been a tough day without her and our Director of Regional Support.”
