Greenwood Village, CO (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
Life in the “Big-Easy” will soon include relaxing in the laidback atmosphere of Maui Wowi Hawaiian’s first New Orleans location. The coffee and smoothie shop is making its way to Louisiana with the help of the company’s most recent Franchisee, Nina Shaw. She is excited to begin building a business she can call her own and providing her community the opportunity to enjoy Maui Wowi products.
“This is exactly what we need. Maui Wowi is about flexibility, quality products, and turning your business into whatever you want it to be; you can start small and become even bigger than you imagined. The possibilities are endless!” said Shaw.
After searching for a business that could bring her purpose and happiness, Shaw discovered the Maui Wowi website and was immediately enamored by the essence of the Hawaiian themed franchise company. Embracing a family oriented atmosphere, Shaw was encouraged by how well it fit her lifestyle.
“When we stumbled upon Maui Wowi’s website and saw the vibrant colors, high quality products, and family atmosphere, we knew this was the business for us,” she said. “It is like bringing a piece of the islands and turning it into a delicious smoothie or fresh cup of coffee.”
Shaw has a strong background in customer service and grew up working in a family owned business that gave her years of entrepreneurial experience. Her family has operated a company that supplies carnivals and souvenir stores with all types of festive items including beads for Mardi Gras. Living in New Orleans and being submersed in the culture and spirit of the dynamic city, Shaw believes the unique concept of Maui Wowi will thrive and the community will embrace the new beverage alternative.
Beginning with a fixed retail location, Shaw plans to build Maui Wowi’s brand recognition throughout the city. By serving all-natural, fresh fruit smoothies and premium Hawaiian coffees and espresso, she hopes to turn her location into a prime destination where students can go to study, families can hang out, and everyone can relax. Down the road, Shaw sees an array of opportunities waiting for her. From operating her fixed location, to working at events, festivals, and catering, Shaw knows that the “Big-Easy” is ready for Maui Wowi Hawaiian.
