International coffee and smoothie retail franchise Maui Wowi Hawaiian is planning to open up to 25 outlets in Ireland over the next three years.

The company’s Ireland Master Franchise Owner, Paul Hickey, has already opened its first outlet at the Ilac Centre in Dublin.

Hickey said: “We have already created seven new jobs and believe we will create up to 180 in the Irish market. Our plan is to develop up to 25 units nationally with our simple, cost-effective, non-royalty-based and low entry fee franchise model.”
