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!

How to make ‘Back to School’ cool!

Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first

September was crisp and golden as an apple.”

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter


It creeps up on you and before you know it, the leaves are changing, the mornings are misty, and the kids are off to school! The long days of summer activities, festivals, and backyard barbeques may be coming to a close, but it doesn’t mean you have to put away your hula skirt just yet!

Bringing in a fun Hawaiian themed concept, fresh fruit smoothies and warm island coffees, is a great addition to any back to school event. Maui Wowi franchisees have the ability to work year-round, indoor or outdoor, and the best part is they can bring the party to the people. Whether it’s an after school football game, a PTA meeting, or teacher appreciation, who doesn’t want a little piece of summer all year long?


As a company, our commitment to community is a core value held by each and every Maui Wowi franchisee as well as us here at the Mainland (corporate headquarters). Through the No-Work FUNdraising program, franchisees have given back thousands of dollars to local schools, youth groups, churches, and other deserving organizations. They set up shop with an easy to use tiki hut style catering unit or the ever-impressive mobile Ka’anapali Cart.  With either unit, guests and customers are treated to the most ono’licious drinks, a.k.a. paradise in a cup, and then a percentage of the sales is donated back to help raise money for the organization.
