Maui Wowi Makes a Splash on the West Coast with Two New Orange County Franchisees

Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffees and Smoothies has added two new franchisees to the Southern California area, growing the list of operators on the West Coast and transforming two people’s lives from employee to entrepreneur.

Greenwood Village, CO (PRWEB) June 08, 2013 - Maui Wowi Hawaiian, an international Hawaiian coffee and fresh fruit smoothie company, has just added two new franchisees in sunny Southern California, growing the brand presence on the West Coast. Shannon Hall and Leo Chan are the newest entrepreneurs to join the company, becoming business owners with a new lease on life.

Hall, a mother of three living in Ladera Ranch, California, a suburban community located in Orange County, has spent the last 12 years in a corporate career in pharmaceuticals, in which she was required to travel routinely. Ready for a change, Hall has chosen a life that allows her to visit paradise without ever leaving the ground. As a Maui Wowi franchisee, Hall is excited to be able to spend more family time with her three girls.

“The time is right for a move toward ultimate happiness and to get back to what is important in life; family, friends, and a career that is fun and at the same time, profitable,” said Hall. “Having the freedom to learn, grow a business, and teach my daughters how to be successful in life is priceless.”

For Leo Chan in Anaheim, California, the same corporate existence has finally come to an end, allowing him to escape the confines of working for someone else and instead, spend his time making a difference in his community. His past experience as a musician gave him a sense of fulfillment that he is eager to once again capture as a Maui Wowi franchisee.

“We were looking for a business that brings a sense of family to the community and leaves a smile on everyone’s face; we found that and so much more with Maui Wowi,” said Chan.

Both Chan and Hall have decided to begin their businesses as mobile operators with the Ka’anapali Cart, a flexible business model that can be transported to different events and venues, bringing the Hawaiian products to the people.

Maui Wowi has given these two the opportunity to change their lives the moment they took off the suit and tie and slipped on a pair of flip flops and a Hawaiian shirt. Their journey is similar but their path distinctly unique. As they each embark on this journey, they will have the support of their families, knowledge from their backgrounds, and the 31 years of proven success of the Maui Wowi Franchise to propel them towards a profitable future.
