Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffees and Smoothies Says 'Aloha' to Their Newest Franchisee in North Carolina


Mar 11, 2013

Greenwood Village, CO - Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffees and Smoothies, welcome their newest Franchisee, Paul Harrison, and his wife Martha as they begin to spread the 'Aloha Spirit' in North Carolina. The Harrison's, who purchased their Maui Wowi agreement from an existing Franchisee, Dave Cerrillos, are excited to bring the tastes of the islands to the Piedmont Triad area, which includes Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and High Point.

"We have worked along side the Cerrillos' and got to know the Maui Wowi brand. All of our experiences with them were positive so it was a pretty natural fit for us," explained Paul.

Paul and Martha have owned a Ben & Jerry's Franchise and tried for years to become a vendor inside the Greensboro Coliseum but to no avail. Until one day, they learned the owners of an already established Maui Wowi Hawaiian, with several mobile carts in the coliseum, were selling their business. It was then that Paul took a chance and decided to start a new adventure.

"The coliseum business represents a good, stable business with great, consistent events. By being local, we will be able to grow the business beyond where it is today," said Paul.

Their empire agreement will allow Paul and Martha to build their business to new heights by working a myriad of events and venues. With Martha's managerial experience from their other businesses, and Paul's finance background, working for eight years with Krispy Kreme and as the CFO of Dewey's Bakery, the sky's the limit and their list of opportunities is endless.
