Our brand mission is that eating better should be easy. For this reason, we’re looking for like-minded individuals who share the same passion for helping others get on the path toward a vibrant, higher-quality life. As a Jamba Franchise Owner, you should share our vision for providing industry-leading smoothies, juices, and bowls and understand the importance that exceptional service plays in your business success. We want to work with Franchise Owners who are eager to succeed, grow into multiple locations and who will take pride in owning their business. Jamba is community focused, and building that connection to your guests is key to developing this iconic brand.
Experience in restaurants, food service or retail is an advantage, but not essential to being approved as a new Franchise Owner.
For candidates applying for a single-unit agreement, you should have a credit score of 700+, liquid capital of $100,000 or more and a net worth of over $300,000. For candidates applying for multiple units, the requirements in terms of both professional backgrounds and skill sets are determined on a case-by-case basis.
We are entrepreneurial in spirit and love working with people who think and dream big. We’re always interested in speaking with area developers, but we understand some people start smaller and have a solid growth plan. We’ve built successful businesses from the ground up, so we know what it takes, and we’re excited to help guide our Franchise Owners toward similar success.
