Maui Wowi Hawaiian Brings the Power of the 'Ohana Together During 2014 International Franchise Conference

Global Hawaiian Coffee and Smoothie Franchise Honors Top Performing Franchisees, Shares Best Practices and Discusses Outlook of Brand

Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) December 12, 2014 -- Breakout sessions on controlling costs, maximizing catering, leveraging social media, boosting the bottom line and learning best practices all kept Maui Wowi Hawaiian franchisees inspired and motivated during the company's recent conference at The Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Englewood, Colo.

For three days, top-performing franchisees and company leaders from the "Mainland" home office led informative breakout sessions, one-on-one training and panel discussions that educated franchise owners on successful business strategies to expand their business, increase speed of operations, attract more customers and boost sales. Empowering speeches were given by CEO Mike Weinberger, Founder Jill Summerhays and Keynote Speaker Gary Michels. The conference also featured an on-site vendor expo and Barista Certification classes from Maui Wowi's exclusive coffee roaster, Coda Coffee Co.

In addition, Maui Wowi Hawaiian honored several standout franchise owners for their business excellence, including:

  • Franchisee of the Year: Keith Mitchell
  • Director of Regional Support of the Year: Ron and Barb Putman
  • Franchise Advisory Council Member of the Year: Trenton Turner
  • Rookie of the Year: Eric and Holley Rilko

Ron Kramer, a retired Maui Wowi Hawaiian franchisee who passed away this year, was awarded the 'Ohana Member of the Year award in memoriam. Kramer was selected by his fellow 'ohana members to receive this award due to his exemplification of the true Aloha Spirit and the Power of the 'Ohana.

"I'm thrilled to give these awards to recipients who demonstrate continued success and excellence within our 'ohana," said Mike Weinberger, CEO of Maui Wowi Hawaiian. "It's truly an honor to see such dedicated business leaders at the conference who are making a difference in their communities as well as within our 'ohana. Their hard work makes our brand thrive."

Into 2015, the leading beverage franchise with over 450 units across 48 states and seven countries, will continue to collaborate with qualified franchise partners to expand its presence both domestically and internationally.
