Jamba Juice started out in San Luis Obispo, CA, in 1990 as a little juice shop with a big idea:

that eating better should be easy.

For nearly 30 years, Jamba has led the way in making balanced options easier and more accessible by serving delicious, made-to-order smoothies, juices, and bowls. With over 800 locations in 35 states and 6 countries, Jamba has become a pioneer and leader in the smoothies and juices category, and continues to innovate and grow with our guests.

"As a franchisee, I am very excited about Jamba’s® direction with its rebranding initiatives and ample opportunity for growth in new markets and venues across the country. In addition to the growth potential, the brand continues to invest in the menu to stay relevant and on-trend, which also helps support healthy unit economics.”
