January 07, 2015 // Franchising.com // Greenwood Village, Colo. - Just in time for the holidays, an Army Reserve unit serving in Kuwait, received a little piece of paradise from Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffees & Smoothies, an international franchise retailer. The island themed company surprised Sgt. Jeremy Stover and his entire troop with a holiday care package filled with Hawaiian coffee, sweet snacks, and island fun.
It was a welcome surprise for the unit who are currently awaiting a new assignment. As the 456th MCT (Movement Control Team), they are tasked with tracking movements of supplies and equipment through the air and via convoy from base to base.
"Everyone deserves to feel the Aloha Spirit, especially during the holidays and this was our chance to give back to our troops and show our gratitude," said Mike Weinberger, CEO of Maui Wowi.
Military members and veterans have played an impactful role in the franchise, with many becoming franchisees after retiring from service. Maui Wowi provides a year round discountof 10 percent off the franchise fee to all U.S. military members. That discount increases to 20 percent from November through December. The company has been recognized as a Military Friendly Franchise by G.I. Jobs Magazine and has also been named one of the Top 50 Franchises for Veterans by World Franchising Network and is a member of the International Franchise Association’s Vet Fran Program.
