Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Maui Wowi Hawaiian continues to expand its presence in the franchise company’s home state of Colorado with its newest franchisee, Stormy Burge. She joins Maui Wowi to bring the gourmet Hawaiian coffees and all-natural, fresh fruit smoothies to Colorado.
“I had never heard of Maui Wowi, but once I came across it, I knew it was the perfect fit,” said Burge. “There’s something for everyone in the family; my kids love the smoothies and my husband and I love the coffee.”
Burge has a background in criminal justice and has worked for the last five and a half years as a Corrections Officer, which has proven to be a very stressful and physical position. She sustained an injury, which gave her even more reason to seek a new career path; one where she could continue to provide her community with something of value, while living a more relaxed lifestyle.
“I wanted to have flexibility and not have to work the typical 9 to 5. I needed something different like Maui Wowi, where I can put on a Hawaiian shirt every day and have fun. You can’t smile enough or have a bad day in a Hawaiian shirt,” said Burge.
From the variety of flexible Maui Wowi business models, Burge has decided to begin with a fixed retail model, while also operating a catering unit that she will use to get the word out about her location.
“I want to have a store and do catering on the side to allow me to get out and meet more people, using it for promotional purposes with a primary focus on driving traffic to my fixed location, as well as a great earning opportunity,” she said.
Burge will be attending an upcoming hands-on training session for new franchisees at the Maui Wowi Mainland headquarters. The week-long training is designed to provide franchisees with the tools and support of a 30 year proven system to help make their businesses a success.
After training, Burge will get the opportunity to meet her fellow franchise members at the Maui Wowi 2012 International Conference, being held in Denver, October 15-17. She will attend three days of general and breakout sessions, hear from guest speakers, meet the vendors, and take in plenty of information and fun. Celebrating 30 years, Maui Wowi Hawaiian specializes in quality products and low-cost business models, with over 600 operating units in eight countries. The conference aims to bring together new and veteran Maui Wowi franchisees from around the world.
