Maui Wowi Hawaiian Expands With New Franchise Operator in Southern California

Maui Wowi Hawaiian, a unique franchise concept specializing in Hawaiian coffees and smoothies, welcomes a new couple as the latest franchise operators with plans to open a store in Southern California.

Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) October 15, 2013 - Maui Wowi Hawaiian, a franchise company specializing in gourmet Hawaiian coffees and fruit smoothies, has added a new franchisee in Southern California. Jason Kounas and girlfriend Jordan Lovato from Highland, California, recently signed an agreement to operate up to three units that will allow them the opportunity to begin living the lives they've been waiting for.

Kounas has been a physical education teacher and community college baseball coach for 18 years, and Jordan is a mother of two boys who has entered a new stage in life and is ready to take on a new challenge. Kounas was looking to invest in a business and knew Lovato would make a great partner. Her desire to be her own boss, combined with an outgoing personality and strong community involvement gave Kounas the idea of opening a coffee shop together and through their research, they found Maui Wowi.

“We researched several coffee businesses and chose Maui Wowi because it had the perfect fit for the type of people we are; outgoing, health conscious, and we love Hawaii,” said Kounas. “There is nothing better than opening a business that offers great coffee from Hawaii, healthy smoothies, and a place with a good vibe that allows you to relax while you enjoy amazing products.”

Kounas and Lovato join a strong team of other Maui Wowi franchisees in Southern California. The company focuses on building great support systems and sense of community, often referring to its franchisees as members of the ‘ohana or family. With the strong foundation in place, Kounas and Lovato are ready to begin building their business, and plan to start by opening a store location.

“This is just the beginning of what is going to be one of the best franchises in the Maui Wowi ‘ohana,” said Lovato. “Our outgoing, fun loving, hardworking personalities, and dedication to the franchise will bring new ideas to enhance all of the current and future owners.”
