Maui Wowi Hawaiian, a US-based coffee and smoothie shop franchise, is set to open its first European outlet at the Ilac Centre in Dublin.

Businessman Paul Hickey has bought the Maui Wowi Hawaiian Master Franchise rights for Ireland and is planning to open 25-30 outlets over the next three years. The franchise can be operated from a number of location types including kiosks, mobile carts, or the conventional café outlets.
