Jamba Juice celebrates 45th campus store opening with University of South Florida in Tampa

Jamba Juice Company announced the opening of its University of South Florida (USF) store in Tampa, Florida, representing the Company’s 45th campus location.

Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ: JMBA), a highly recognized healthy, active lifestyle brand, announced the opening of its University of South Florida (USF) store in Tampa, Florida, representing the Company’s 45th campus location.

“It’s a great gateway for new fans to discover the iconic California brand.”

In addition to the new USF location, Jamba Juice recently opened locations on campus at Louisiana State University and Illinois State University as well as two new California locations at California State University in Hayward and Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California. The initiative builds upon Jamba’s success in launching franchise kiosks and small formats on colleges and universities nationwide to help campus restaurant operators bring a delicious, better-for-you, portable meal option to busy students on-the-go.

“Students lead very demanding lives so we are pleased to make it easy for them to enjoy Jamba’s great tasting and better-for-you specialty beverage and food options without leaving campus,” said Thibault de Chatellus, senior vice president, Global Franchise Development, Jamba Juice Company. “It’s a great gateway for new fans to discover the iconic California brand.”

Jamba Juice is a perfect choice for food service and campus restaurant operators looking to bring a widely recognized healthy, active lifestyle brand with better-for-you and great tasting menu options on campus to serve students.

“Jamba is the number one top-of-mind smoothie brand and among the top 10 nationally recognized healthy brands,” commented James D. White chairman, president, and CEO, Jamba Juice Company. “Jamba has always been focused on simplifying and inspiring healthy living and our product line-up has great appeal for students seeking a healthier meal alternative that fits their active lifestyles.”

Jamba Juice products are made with high quality ingredients and contain no artificial flavors or preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, and 0g of trans fat. Jamba’s menu also provides meal and snack alternatives for students with special dietary needs including non-dairy, non-gluten, vegetarian, and vegan.

In addition to offering better-for-you meal options, Jamba also strives to be better for the environment by working with campus locations in support of their local sustainability initiatives. Jamba does this by helping design stores on those campuses that meet stringent green standards as defined by the U.S. Green Building Council under the LEED program. Green-friendly design features include the use of recycled materials in wall panels, carpeting, furniture fabrics and tile, the use of more natural lighting with layouts that provide direct outdoor views from 90 percent of all work spaces, an implementation of lighting and air conditioning controls that help conserve energy. Jamba has supported LEED design standards at California Polytechnic State University and Northeastern University. Jamba also provides alternatives for composting and recycling where supported by campus policy and procedure.
