Maui Wowi Hawaiian, the rapidly growing retailer of premium coffees and fruit smoothies, opened a new store near Nashville, Tennessee. Located in Franklin at the new Berry Farms development, this is the first store for local franchisees Eric and Holley Rilko, and the second store in the greater Nashville community. The first store opened last summer in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.
Berry Farms is a new community development in Franklin that has quickly become a prime location to live, work, and do business. Maui Wowi is the latest to join the rapidly growing area. The new store provides a taste of paradise to customers with its comfortable seating areas, premium Hawaiian coffee roasts and espresso drinks, and made-to-order fruit smoothies. The store also features a wide variety of baked goods and snack options. The store’s location is situated for morning and afternoon commuters who can enjoy the convenient drive-thru that’s designed to serve customers quickly and efficiently.
“We want Maui Wowi to become your vacation from the hustle and bustle of the day,” says Eric Rilko. “The inviting atmosphere, superior service, and premium products are what set us apart and transforms the experience into an island oasis in Music City.”
The Rilkos spread awareness of their new store by capitalizing on the variety of business models offered by the franchise. They started their business with the mobile Maui Wowi event cart, which allowed them to begin working right away while they were looking for the perfect fixed retail location. The transportable unit has served customers at festivals, youth sporting events, and much more over the past year and will remain an active part of the Rilko’s business as they grow.
