Maui Wowi Hawaiian is stocking up on ice, grabbing the blenders, and preparing to peel bananas all weekend long at two area events in Peoria, Illinois. Franchise operator, Bryon Griffin, will be blending up smoothies at the Pekin Super Cruise, as well as the 6th Annual Kids' Day 2012 charity event.

The Pekin Super Cruise is a two-day event that takes place Friday and Saturday, July 27th and 28th in Downtown Pekin, a city just outside of Peoria in Central Illinois. The family friendly event will line the streets with classic cars, motorcycles, and hotrods that have been restored to mint condition. “This is going to be a fun event,” Griffin said. “Car enthusiasts can enjoy our refreshing smoothies as they browse the stunning vehicles and enjoy live music.”

After getting things going at the Super Cruise, Griffin will set up shop from his second mobile event unit at Kids' Day 2012, located at the Shoppes of Grand Prairie on Saturday, July 28th. This fundraising event is sponsored by Crittenton Centers, a not-for-profit organization that has been offering assistance to infants, children, and families for more than 100 years.

Kids' Day features a variety of fun activities; including face painting, balloon artists, a dunk tank, and more. Griffin, who also owns a fixed Maui Wowi location, says he enjoys staying active in the community by working at events that are not only fun, but also ones that allow him the opportunity to give back.

“It's all about what Crittenton Centers stand for. They give people who have gone through challenging times the ability to step away and regroup through their family services programs. This is a great program for the community and serves those who are in need,” Griffin said. “We are honored that Maui Wowi has the opportunity to be a part of this event and we will be donating a percentage of our revenue back to Crittenton Centers.”

Griffin recently opened a Maui Wowi Hawaiian store location at 9901 N. Knoxville in Peoria, IL. The company specializes in serving made to order, fresh fruit smoothies that are all-natural and gluten-free, in addition to a line of premium Hawaiian coffees and espresso beverages. Griffin is able to take the same laidback, island vibe and quality products found at his store and share it with people at events and venues from the mobile event unit called the Ka'anapali Cart.

Maui Wowi Hawaiian is a franchise company with over 600 units throughout nine countries. Bryon says he is continuing to generate brand awareness, leads and focusing on driving business to the Maui Wowi location. He is also pursuing future opportunities in fundraising and charity events throughout the community.
