Visitors to the new Lake Pleasant location will come to crave the endless options of their favorite superfoods with healthy, energizing menu items like the Auntyâ€™s Pitaya Smoothie, Cold Brew Crave Acai Bowl or the Micro Greens Avocado Toast. The new location will also introduce brand new menu items including the new Acai Kingâ€™s Bowl, Black Lava Flatbread Sandwich and the new Tropikale Smoothie.
On top of fresh, healthful products, Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonades is fervently committed to sustainability. Guests can order their lemonades or smoothies in a re-usable Mason Jar and receive a discount on their next purchase if they bring the Mason Jar back to reuse. The brand also uses all recyclable or compostable products for packaging to-go orders.
Gray and Peck are brothers-in-law who have looked for opportunities to go into business with each other for the past decade. After exploring franchise opportunities, Gray reach out to his former colleague Tim Weiderhoft, CEO and a local franchisee of Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonades. The timing was right and Gray and Peck loved what the brand would bring to their community. Their wives, Christi Gray and Yvette Peck will run day-to-day operations. Truly a family operation, Peckâ€™s two daughters and Grayâ€™s son will also work in the restaurant.
â€œTim and I have worked together in the past, so we knew the brand had strong leadership. Then, from the moment we tried the lemonades and acai bowls we were both wowed,â€ said Gray. â€œThe more we learned about the brand, the more excited we became, from the healthy food options to the focus on sustainability. These days weâ€™re planning our day around when we can get to a Valley Wow Wow for some food! Wayne are I are proud that this is more than a transaction. Wow Wow provides our families a way to connect with and serve our local community.â€
The duo has future plans to bring Wow Wow to Surprise, Ari.
The new Wow Wow will be open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. The store can be reached at (623) 248-5068.
