Maui Wowi Hawaiian, a chain of Hawaiian coffee and smoothie shops, has opened a store on Joppa Road in Towson.
Franchisees Mike and Amanda Pyne have moved up to a permanent location after operating a Maui Wowi mobile cart since 2011. The shop in Radio Park on Joppa Road sells gluten-free smoothies, snacks, baked goods and coffee drinks made with Hawaiian espresso beans.
With the mobile cart, the Pynes have worked events such as the Baltimore Grand Prix, fundraisers for Pets on Wheels and John Hopkins Children's Center and the Preakness Celebration Balloon Festival.
The chain started in 1982 and now has more than 450 locations in seven countries, including event carts, mall kiosks and stand-alone stores.
