Career Site

Jamba Juice operates a chain of fruit juice stores with 735 locations consisting of 490 company- owned and operated stores and 245 franchise stores.

The company has partnership agreements with area developers in Hawaii and Texas. In addition, Jamba Juice has licensing agreements with Whole Foods Markets, Target, Safeway, Vons, and Pavilions stores, and also operates stores on college campuses and in airport locations across the country

The company's products and services include:

Jamba Smoothies: Made with 100% real fruits and fruit juices, these natural, freshly blended-to-order fruit smoothies provide three-to-four of the daily-recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. Each is loaded with vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, fiber and potassium. Jamba smoothies are available in a variety of sizes and options to accommodate every activity level and diet objective. Jamba's newest addition to the menu are All Fruit Smoothies, all-natural energizing drinks comprised of only 100% real fruit, fruit juice and ice, and loaded with the essential vitamins and minerals needed to stay active and healthy. In March 2004, Jamba introduced Jamba Light, (formerly Enlightened Smoothies), a line of lower calorie, sugar and carb smoothies made with a lower calorie dairy base and SPLENDA.

Totally Tea Smoothies: Building on the momentum of the growing trend in teas and consumer demand for a product that infuses tea into their daily lives, Jamba has developed three innovative and invigorating tea smoothies. Totally Tea Smoothies are a delicious, never-before-blended beverage containing antioxidants - something our bodies cannot generate on our own - that help neutralize free radicals in our systems. Tea smoothies offer more vitamins, minerals, and nutrients than coffee and aid in fueling a healthy, energized life.

Jamba Blends: Jamba's yogurt blends offer a creamy, delicious, and nutritious way to get an energizing jumpstart to the day. Made with 100% real fruit, nonfat yogurt, and soymilk, these tasty blends (available in two flavors ­ Bright Eyed & Blueberry and Sunrise Strawberry) provide antioxidants and protein needed to power through a busy day.

Jamba Boosts: The natural nutrients in Jamba smoothies can be powered-up with Jamba Boosts, a selection of high quality, uniquely blended vitamin, mineral and herb dietary supplements designed to give the mind and body a nutritious boost. Jamba Juice offers ten Boosts, including favorites like Protein, Energy and Vita Boost. A complimentary boost is offered with each Jamba Smoothie.

Fresh Squeezed Jamba Juices: Refreshing, delicious and completely nutritious, Jamba's line-up of fresh squeezed juices, including orange, carrot, wheatgrass and lemonade and juice combinations such as the Vibrant-C (a slushy blend of fresh orange juice, pineapple juice, bananas and botanicals loaded with 1400% RDI of Vitamin C), provide natural fuel to keep you energized, healthy and alert.

Jamba Breads & Jamba Pretzels: Crafted with wholesome and natural ingredients, the selection of Jamba breads and warm, all-natural Jamba pretzels are a perfect complement to Jamba smoothies and juices. Jamba baked goods are enriched with B vitamins, iron, vitamin C and folic acid for extra boost.

The company has been testing new flatbread sandwiches at stores in Calfornia and NYC.

History

In 1990, company founder Kirk Perron, an avid cyclist, was looking for a healthy, refreshing and convenient snack to replenish his body and mind after his long rides. Nothing available resembled what he craved, so he took it upon himself to create what he desired. The result: freshly squeezed juices and blended-to-order smoothies ­ pure fruits and 100% fruit juices with no artificial preservatives or colors to take away from the wholesomeness of the food and its beneficial properties. Realizing there might be others with a similar craving, Perron set his sights on opening his own business, originally called The Juice Club, which filled a void in the community and became a place where people like himself could gather and feel good about what they ate. The first location opened in 1990 in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Jamba's passion for health and its uncompromising dedication to quality are the keys to its customer satisfaction and company success.

On November 28, 2006 Jamba became a publicly traded company through a merger with Services Acquisition Corp. International, living under the name Jamba Juice Company.
