Kirkland, Washington with Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffees & Smoothies DENVER (Tuesday, February 24, 2009) Kirkland, Washington offers residents and visitors a beautiful waterfront, inviting parks, charming downtown, and soon the all natural fresh-fruit smoothies, and authentic Hawaiian coffees from Maui Wowi Hawaiian.
When Kirkland resident, Amy Johnstone, left Microsoft after 16 years to pursue her dream of owning her own business, she turned to a business coach who suggested she take a look at franchising. “The idea of buying into a proven system really appealed to me, and so I began my due diligence and focused in on 5 franchise concepts” said Amy. “Right from the start I was intrigued with Maui Wowi and that appeal grew stronger throughout the process. Seattle has coffee shops and smoothie shops, but nothing like the fusion of Hawaiian Coffees & Smoothies that Maui Wowi offers” she added.
“Individuals searching for a business opportunity that is flexible, simple to operate, healthy, dignified, low cost investment and low risk, part-time or full-time, find it in a Maui Wowi Hawaiian franchise” said Justin Livingston, Director of Global Development for Maui Wowi.
“Everyone in Washington seems to love Hawaii, and I am looking forward to bringing the allure of the tropics to rainy Seattle” said Amy. Amy will be serving Maui Wowi fresh fruit smoothies and Hawaiian coffees at activities such as fairs, sporting events, conventions, festivals, trade shows, grand openings, and other events around the Kirkland, Washington area.
Now numbering nearly 500 franchised operating units across the U.S., and 5 International Master Franchises, Maui Wowi Hawaiian is the original fruit smoothie drink franchise. The company, founded by couple Jeff and Jill Summerhays, has since expanded to include exclusive blended Hawaiian coffees and genuine Hawaiian lifestyle merchandise. Maui Wowi Hawaiian has been named to “Entrepreneur” magazine’s Franchise 500 for the past five consecutive years, and has twice ranked as one of the fastest-growing private companies on INC magazine’s INC 500 listing.
