Booster Juice sets new world record for largest smoothie
Portland Oregon, July 27, 2006
After 7 blenders, 3.5 hours of blending and over 25 000 ounces of smoothie (740 litres), one of the Booster Juice stores in Kitchener, Canada broke the current record for the World’s Largest Smoothie. To break this record Booster Juice had to surpass the previous record of 333 litres (88 gallons)! City firefighters were on site to help in the attempt to enter the Guinness World Records by making the world’s largest smoothie. Best of all, Booster Juice raised $1,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society by selling the world’s largest smoothie in 24 oz cups after the record breaking event.
“As always we are excited to have set yet another benchmark in the Juice and Smoothie Bar industry and support such a great charitable organization” states Dale Wishewan, Booster Juice President and CEO. The event took place on July 22nd at noon in the Sunrise Shopping Centre in Kitchener, Ontario.
