“Beware the sketchy food”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Bought a turkey breast sandwich here next to gate C9 to eat on a flight I was boarding. They have a large case to the left of the counter with prepared sandwiches for $7.24. When I opened it on the plane, I was hit by a strong odor resembling a dirty kitchen sponge and there was a very unwholesome looking discoloration of the meat and the bread. This food was inedible and calls into question the food safety practices at Maui Wowi.

Aloha! Thank you for sharing your experience with Maui Wowi at Dulles Airport -- even if it was an unpleasant one. We take all comments seriously and your input will only help us in improving to deliver the Aloha Spirit. I apologize that you were unhappy with your sandwich, but I assure you all sandwiches are made fresh daily and are dated to ensure freshness. We have never had any issues with food safety and have always had a high score on every health department inspection. We do open some sandwiches on-site as customers like to have them grilled, so we will more closely monitor any of the issues you encountered. Mahalo for your open-honest feedback and if you contact us directly we'd like the opportunity to make it up to you aloha@kapotrading.com
