Maui Wowi Hawaiian Brings Serenity to Southern California With Their Newest Franchisees

Kari Smedley and Kris Nelson are welcomed to the Maui Wowi Hawaiian ‘Ohana in Fallbrook, California

Greenwood Village, CO (PRWEB) December 21, 2011 - Southern California is known for fast cars, glitz and glamor but sometimes you just need a break from all the hustle and bustle. That’s what new Maui Wowi Hawaiian Franchise owners, Kari Smedley and Kris Nelson envision providing for their community. The gourmet Hawaiian coffee and fresh fruit smoothie company,, will soon be bringing paradise to Fallbrook, California in San Diego County.

“People get caught up in the fast paced lifestyle of Southern California. We want to provide the Temecula Valley community a sanctuary where they will be greeted with a friendly face and a quality product,” said Kris.

The mother and daughter team have worked together closely in their family owned dental practice for years. Their tight knit relationship has also built a strong business foundation of knowledge and skills that will be put to use as they make their newest dream come true.

“The more and more we researched this franchise, it became apparent that Maui Wowi provides everything we want to be able to offer to our community; a great product in a relaxed, fun atmosphere where our community can come to connect with each other,” said Kari.

Kris and Kari’s vision is to open a fixed retail location in the Temecula/Riverside area of San Diego County. They know that there are more ways to reach out to their community so they also intend to operate a mobile unit called a Ka’anapali cart that will allow them to share the ‘Aloha Spirit’ with a captive audience.

“We see this as such a great opportunity to reach out and show love to our community, all the while, offering a quality product and ‘top-notch’ service. We are both extremely excited for what adventures lie ahead of us and are proud to join the Maui Wowi ‘Ohana (family),” said Kari.
