I’m ready for the change in lifestyle from business suits and heels to Hawaiian attire and flip flops.

Come rain, come shine, Maui Wowi Hawaiian’s newest franchisee now has the flexibility to work where she wants, when she wants, and how often she wants. For Tina Lopez, this was a key component when deciding to begin her own business with Maui Wowi Hawaiian, an all-natural, fresh fruit smoothie and gourmet coffee franchise company. Since retiring, Lopez has decided to live a laidback lifestyle and serve quality products to Creswell, Oregon and the surrounding communities.

“I embrace change and was looking for something fun and a business where I could be outdoors, enjoying the sun and the nice weather or inside when it is not so nice out,” said Lopez. “Maui Wowi gives me the flexibility and supplemental income I’ve wanted. I have the opportunity to choose from a multitude of events and have fun.”

Lopez worked in a leadership position with the USDA, Forest Service in Human Resources for 30 years, until she decided to retire in 2010. Since then, she has been looking for the perfect fit to give her an outlet for her personality and laidback charm. “I am a very energetic individual and know myself well enough to know that I wouldn’t last long being retired,” said Lopez. “I’m ready for the change in lifestyle from business suits and heels to Hawaiian attire and flip flops. Maui Wowi is the perfect franchise for me to invest my future time and energy.”

Maui Wowi Hawaiian completed a successful transfer of agreement from an existing Franchisee to Lopez, which included one mobile event unit and one catering unit. The mobile event unit, called a Ka’anapli Cart, will allow Lopez to work an endless list of events and venues such as community youth athletic clubs, tournaments, festivals, and flea markets. Her additional catering unit will open up the doors to even more opportunity to work private functions like graduations, weddings, and corporate events.

Within the next two years, Lopez aspires to be serving the ‘Aloha Spirit’ all across Oregon with her Ka’anapali Cart, catering unit, and the addition of a concession trailer that will give her more options to work indoors or out. “To me, the opportunities are endless,” she said.

Maui Wowi Hawaiian specializes in serving premium products with island flair that include all-natural fresh fruit smoothies, gourmet Hawaiian coffees, and decadent espresso beverages. They can be found at events, venues, kiosks, and fixed retail locations, with franchise opportunities in the U.S. and internationally.
