EMERYVILLE, Calif. - November 24, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Offering freshly made fruit juices, signature smoothies, and better-for-you food options, Jamba Juice®, a leading health and wellness brand and retailer of freshly squeezed juice today announced plans to expand its presence in the Phoenix market with the opening of two new stores, one in Glendale and the other in Surprise.
The Glendale kiosk location will open on Friday, November 27th in the newly renovated and modernized dining center at Arrowhead Towne Center, at 7700 W Arrowhead Towne Center. The second location, a traditional full format store, will open at Surprise Towne Center, a premier shopping destination that is located at 13732 W. Bell Rd., Ste 6, in late December.
The locations are operated by Jamba franchise partner Whirld Concepts, Inc., which owns 13 additional stores in central Arizona and California. Panos Joulios, president of Whirld Concepts, has been a Jamba franchise partner for more than five years, and has strong roots with Jamba as he previously served as a corporate district manager for the business. The new stores will bring an additional 40 to 50 jobs to the area.
“Fruit juices and smoothies have become a mainstay in the health conscious consumer’s diet, and we’ve seen the demand for better-for-you options increase in the Phoenix market, which has spurred us to grow and expand,” said Joulios. “With the holidays upon us, it’s a perfect time to visit Jamba Juice, whether it’s to refuel from the busy season with one of Jamba’s signature beverages, or to give the gift of Jamba to your family and friends.”
While continuing to be innovators in the health and wellness space, Jamba Juice and Whirld Concepts have also been a strong philanthropic partner with organizations such as Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Toys for Tots, along with fifty local schools throughout the Mesa, Peoria and Phoenix regions.
The openings continue Jamba Juice’s tradition of providing a wide variety of nutritious and freshly prepared menu selections. The Jamba Juice menu offers beverage choices for every palette and taste, with strong roots in their hallmark freshly squeezed juices, made to order with whole food ingredients. Jamba Juice’s signature Smoothies are blended masterpieces made with real fruit. Jamba isn’t just about beverages - guests can even enjoy Jamba’s Energy Bowls to give you that extra boost and hearty, steel-cut oatmeal.
In addition to blending goodness in each of its juices and smoothies, Jamba locations around the country have a rich tradition of engaging in and giving back to the community by advocating the building of healthier communities.
