EMERYVILLE, Calif. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Jul. 29, 2013 - Jamba Juice Company, a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand announced today that in celebration of the one-year anniversary of bringing health and wellness to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, it will give away free 16-ounce smoothies at its Dupont Circle, Union Station and Montgomery Mall locations, which are operated through a joint venture with tennis and Washington Kastles superstar Venus Williams. The celebration and free smoothie offer will take place on July 31, 2013 from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. EDT.
In July 2012, Jamba opened two stores in D.C., in Dupont Circle and Union Station, to complement its location in Montgomery Mall, which opened in 2011. Former Obama Administration Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin attended the grand opening ceremony at Dupont Circle and served as “master celebrity blenders,” echoing Jamba’s hard work and dedication to communities while addressing the event attendees.
Jamba’s commitment to the D.C. area extends well beyond the doors of its stores, as the company strives to promote a healthy, active lifestyle throughout each of the communities in which it operates. Jamba has given generously to D.C. school and community garden programs through a partnership with The National Gardening Association, sponsors local professional sports organizations including The Washington Mystics and D.C. United and is an active member of the D.C. Chamber of Commerce. Furthermore, in support of the White House’s call for businesses to expand their workforce and hire more youth, Jamba is providing more than 60 high-quality jobs for D.C. and Maryland residents.
“The Washington area has supported Jamba and our commitment to healthy communities, and as a thank you to all of our fans and community partners, we are excited to offer free smoothies and exciting promotions on July 31,” said Julie S. Washington, senior vice president and chief brand officer, Jamba Juice Company. “In partnership with Venus Williams, we look forward to continuing our presence in the Washington area and sharing our success for years to come.”
On July 31, each guest of the three participating Jamba Juice locations will also receive a scratcher card, along with a free 16-ounce smoothie (limit one per customer, while supplies last). All of the scratcher cards will provide discounts on future Jamba purchases, and one lucky guest will receive the grand prize winner scratcher card, entitling the winner to free smoothies for one year in the form of a Jamba gift card worth $550. There is no purchase necessary to receive a scratcher card. For the scratcher card official rules, guests may ask a team member in one of the participating Jamba Juice locations.
