MAUI WOWI HAWAIIAN
HISTORY OF MAUI WOWI
Started in 1982 by Jeff & Jill Summerhays, Maui
Wowi Hawaiian was built to provide their 'Ohana
(family) a healthy alternative to the sugar and fat
laden foods that seemed to be everywhere they
In 1997, Michael Haith, then a food & beverage
consultant and seasoned entrepreneur, met the
Summerhays at the Utah Arts Festival. Just one look
at the reaction of the raving fans to Jeff & Jill's high
quality, healthy products was all he needed to see.
Haith brought his seasoned business skills and a
franchise system was born.
Today, Maui Wowi Hawaiian has grown into a wildly
successful franchise system with nearly 500
franchisees nationwide, 3 International Master
Franchises and another 800 units under development.
