Energy Bowls: Served in portable portions, the company’s new Energy Bowls are a nutritious blend of real, whole fruit and soymilk or fresh Greek yogurt, topped with an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits. Whether served for breakfast, lunch or as a mid-day snack, these bowls provide key nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber to support a well-balanced diet. The company licenses JambaGO and Jamba Smoothie Station formats. The Jamba Smoothie Station concept is an express service utilizing existing technology to make select smoothie flavors in small spaces. Smoothie Stations offer a limited menu and use pre-portioned fruit and other ingredients to produce smoothies comparable to the company’s traditional stores. Targeted venues include colleges and universities, grocery stores, airports, hospitals, and business cafeterias. The JambaGO concept targets venues servicing captive audiences. The JambaGO format is a small footprint, low-capital and low-labor, self-serve machine format, and has proven to be a differentiated solution for food service providers seeking healthier beverage options for their constituents. The typical venue for a JambaGO unit has a demand for high volumes, requires high-speed service, where a full-sized Jamba Juice store or kiosk would not be feasible. Such venues include retail store cafés or restaurants, K-12 schools, colleges and universities, grocery and convenience stores, stadiums, theaters, event centers and select airport locations. During 2013, the company launched JambaGO units at approximately 1,000 café locations in Target Stores in the United States.
