Got questions? We got you!

Do I need previous restaurant or franchising experience to become a Jamba franchisee?

While we do prefer you to have previous experience, it is not required. Franchise candidates without sufficient restaurant experience will be required to successfully complete a shadow program, which is an unpaid evaluation program where you will receive hands-on franchise training. A written evaluation of your training and our recommendations for next steps will be provided at the end of the program.


Is Jamba offering single and multi-unit franchise opportunities?

Yes, we are currently seeking qualified candidates to open both single and multi-unit franchises.


What are the initial fees?

Initial franchise fee: $35,000


What type of training will I receive as a new Jamba franchise owner?

As a newly minted Jamba Franchise Owner, you will start feeling the power of the brand from day one, especially when it comes to training and support. Immediately following the agreement signing, you will begin your Jamba Brand Immersion. As a Franchise Owner, this provides you with frequent and ongoing learning to ensure you are thoroughly trained to run your business with confidence.

Step 1

Begins with an in-depth onboarding session that you attend with your Managing Operator at the Jamba Whirl’d Headquarters (also known as the Support Center).

Step 2

The most fun – Store Training. You and your management team spend up to two weeks working side-by-side with our corporate team at a Company Certified Training location.

This comprehensive training covers everything from guest service (BOOST standards), process (recipes, preparation), ordering (ingredients, supplies), operating processes, point of sale, store layout, local marketing, best practices and culture.

Step 3

Once a site is selected and approved, you will have the dedicated support of a cross-functional New Store Opening team on weekly calls assisting you with all of your needs. Representatives from Local Marketing, Training, Operations, IT and Development will sit in on these calls and be at your fingertips throughout the whole process.

Step 4

After your store opening, continued support will come from a Franchise Business Consultant trained to assist you in optimizing your operations. This, along with the other support tools provided, will help ensure that you enjoy a lively and successful Jamba business.
