August 06, 2014 // Franchising.com // Greenwood Village, CO - Maui Wowi Hawaiian, premium coffee and fresh fruit smoothie retailer, has done it again with a new location now open in Oceanside, California. This is the second store to open in the state within the past few months, as the company continues to experience growth and demand in the California market. The Oceanside location is owned and operated by franchisee Nandini Chatterjee.
"The opening of the new store in Oceanside is very exciting," said Justin Livingston, Vice President of Business Development at Maui Wowi. "It has been a rewarding experience to work with Nandini through the E-2 Visa process, which has allowed her and her family to relocate from London to live the American dream and spread the Aloha Spirit with Maui Wowi."
Chatterjee is one in a growing number of franchisees who are making the move to the U.S. through business ownership and the E-2 Visa program.As a United Kingdom native, Chatterjee was looking to fulfill her dream to become a business owner and move to America with her husband and young daughter. With her dream now realized, she is ready to open up shop and begin the next phase in her adventure.
The Maui Wowi location offers the community a fun island atmosphere where they can gather to enjoy a freshly blended smoothie or premium caffeinated beverage. The family friendly company serves smoothies that are gluten-free, fat-free, and blended with the highest quality ingredients.
