Old School Bagel Cafe's bakers arrive at 3 a.m. each morning to begin crafting fresh dough for the day's array of New York–style rounds, which accompany steaming mugs of joe and bookend the fillings for specialty sandwiches. The bagel purists boil, rather than steam, each O before baking it in the oven. A quick glance of laser vision slices each bagel, halving it before a staffer slathers it with cream cheese or transforms it into a noontime eat.
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
In Paciugo Gelato & Caffè, you quickly find yourself right in the middle of Italy. Dark, rich espresso pours into cups, and a display case reveals velvety gelato flavors, each handmade onsite from fresh ingredients and amid fresh oxygen. The vision for this sweet alcove comes from founder Cristiana Ginatta, an Italian native who fell in love with her grandfather’s handmade gelato at a young age. Cristiana grew up in Italy, where she also attended culinary school with an emphasis on gelato making. In the late '90s, Cristiana and her family moved to Dallas, Texas, and she opened the first Paciugo Gelato & Caffè. The business has now expanded into dozens of locations across North America, each one filled with coffee, frappes, and gelato cones in more than 150 flavors.
Health Nut Cafe rolls its many wraps with both nutrition and flavor in mind. The deli's menu accommodates vegetarians and meat-seekers with sandwiches, salads, and specialty smoothies, refusing to sacrifice taste as it showcases health-conscious cooking. Catering services can furnish office meetings or luncheons with fresh alternatives to lickable business cards.
With more than 845 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as Peach Perfection and Strawberry Whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including Peanut Butter Moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate. The lunch hour presents toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320–420 calories each.
In addition to providing healthy eats to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America.
