Retirement proved to be no fun at all so I decided to start over with a totally new and interesting business.

Maui Wowi Hawaiian expands into Las Vegas with its newest franchisee Jon Harris. He has been granted the rights to an empire builder agreement, allowing him to own up to ten Maui Wowi units that he plans to open throughout the state of Nevada and beyond.

An international man of casinos, Harris has spent 40 years in the gaming industry, building, managing and owning about 30 casinos in 17 countries. Originally from the United Kingdom, Harris traveled the world in a fast paced environment surrounded by an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment. When the casino industry was hit by the downturn in the economy, that atmosphere that he enjoyed faded away, so he decided to take another path.

“I always made it my aim in life that if ever the casino business ceased to be fun, I would get out of it. So I retired,” says Harris. “However, retirement proved to be no fun at all so I decided to start over with a totally new and interesting business.”

Now a husband and father of an 8-year-old son, Harris’ lifestyle has changed a bit from the past 40 years. He discovered Maui Wowi and found it to be the refreshing choice he was looking for, in which he could incorporate his family. Forging ahead with a new business, Harris will use his skills from managing food and beverage operations at one of his many casinos to build a Maui Wowi empire. Starting with multiple mobile carts that he can take just about anywhere, to kiosks that he plans to establish in the bustling shopping areas throughout Las Vegas, the possibilities are endless.

Finally, the fun has returned, giving Harris a new challenge to pursue and a business that will bring him and his family enjoyment for years to come. To find out more information please visit
