Forget the rock-hard pretzels and suspicious-looking hot dogs that cart vendors were once known for. Nowadays, the mobile foodservice space is populated by specialty coffee concepts, gourmet popcorn carts, and Korean barbecue on wheels. And business is booming for these operators as they look to economize and get in front of consumers in new ways.
Maui Wowi has made its way to Cary, North Carolina, a thriving community just outside Raleigh. A new store and drive thru is now open, serving Maui Wowi Hawaiian’s fruit smoothies and gourmet coffees. Franchisee Zach Dunbar, owner of the new location, relocated to Cary after retiring from a 24-year career in law enforcement at the New York State Police Department.
As a military veteran, Dunbar has been looking forward to continuing to serve his community through the new business and introducing residents to the fun, laidback atmosphere and quality products of Maui Wowi.
