Maui Wowi Multiplies in Minnesota

Maui Wowi Hawaiian,, awards a new franchisee in Minnetrista, Minn. expanding the brand and bringing more choices for coffee and smoothies to the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) February 09, 2013 - Maui Wowi Hawaiian is expanding its reach in Minnesota and has recently granted Ross Harried a franchise agreement to bring more of the popular smoothies and coffees to the town of Minnetrista and surrounding areas. Harried joins a robust network of successful Minnesota franchisees and plans to build upon the brand recognition and event opportunities that have already been established.

“There are so many opportunities, and the number of events is so vast,” said Harried. “Going into franchising appealed to me because I know I won’t have to reinvent the wheel. Somebody has been in this area, blazing the trails for years prior to me, which means there have been a lot of efforts put into figuring out the most productive ways of doing business.”

Harried has spent numerous years in the corporate world making other people money and decided it was time to take back his destiny so he and his family can have the freedom and flexibility in life that they have always dreamed of.

“When Maui Wowi was introduced to me, I saw something that was beautifully simple. It elicited a feeling of comfort and excitement for possibility, similar to what I feel when taking in a sunrise over a Minnesota lake,” said Harried.

With Maui Wowi, he will be able to finally control his calendar and his finances, allowing him to establish the proper balance between business life and family life. “It’s a very nurturing and positive atmosphere, surrounded by a simple model that gives me the ability to protect events and build on my calendar year over year so I don’t have to start from scratch,” he said.

Harried will begin with the mobile event model called a Ka’anapali Cart that can easily be set up at events and venues and is perfect for school sports functions, graduation parties, and just about any festivity that calls for a Hawaiian themed tiki bar with quality products and the Aloha spirit. Harried says he sees a lot of opportunity for weekday events and to build a solid client base to fill his calendar all year long.

The Maui Wowi brand continues to grow throughout Minnesota with the recent opening of Maui Wowi at the Rosedale Center Mall, as well as locations at Burnsville Center, the Xcel Energy Center, Mariucci Arena and various other events and venues.
