Company Overview

Fresh fruit smoothies were a virtually unknown product in 1982, when Jeff and Jill Summerhays began selling them part-time at events. The company caught the eye of Michael Haith, founding partner of a food, beverage and special-event consulting firm. Haith revamped the franchise concept and expanded the product line, which now includes Hawaiian coffees and espresso.

Maui Wowi franchises are located throughout the United States and internationally.
