Bruegger's Bagels And Jamba Juice Launch Co-Branded Concept

March opening in Melrose, Mass., is first of several planned for 2016.

DALLAS, Feb. 25, 2016 // PRNewswire // -- Bruegger's Bagels, known for its authentic New York-style bagels and signature egg sandwiches, and Jamba Juice, a leading better-for-you specialty beverage brand, will open the first of several planned co-branded stores in early March in Melrose, Massachusetts.

The partnership brings two great brands together under one roof. Guests can enjoy fresh-baked Bruegger's Bagels, 100 percent made-in-Vermont cream cheese, sandwiches, soups and salads alongside a great-tasting assortment of Jamba made-to-order smoothies, fresh squeezed juices, and Jamba Energy Bowls, a great-tasting, nutritious snack perfect for any time of the day.

At the new Melrose location, Bruegger's Bagels will debut several new menu items including handcrafted cream cheese and new dessert options such as New York-style coffeecake, cheesecake brownies and Greek yogurt blueberry muffins. New coffee offerings include premium Rainforest Alliance Certified coffees, seasonal single-origin pour-over coffees, specialty espresso beverages and organic 20-hour cold brew coffee.

"We tested the concept near the University of Connecticut campus, and it really demonstrated the power of this partnership," said Bruegger's Bagels President Paul Carolan. "With our Melrose location, we've expanded on what we've learned, adding a new service model and interior design, extended hours of operation, as well as premium menu extensions to enhance the guest experience even further."

"Bruegger's Bagels' loyal following in the Boston area provides a great opportunity for us to introduce Jamba Juice in concert with a local favorite that has been serving the market for more than 30 years," said David Pace, CEO of Jamba, Inc. "The combination of the two brands will offer guests a unique variety and even more reasons to visit for breakfast, lunch, late afternoon snacks, dinner and beyond."

Several other co-branded locations are currently under construction in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, with plans in the works for additional stores in the pipeline.
