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.
Though Mandy’s Café Piazza is nestled in the Moda Salon Suites building at the Brookside Professional Plaza, the aromas of steaming coffee and cafe food are sure to lead guests to the right place.

2 Di 4 Gourmet Karmel Korn’s popcorn is so tasty, it’s addictive. In fact, the business maintains a Karmel Korn Addicts page on its website with testimonials from customers would can’t get enough Kashoo, P-Nut, and Bacorn KarmelKorn. 2 Di 4 Gourmet Karmel Korn achieves this devotion by ensuring that each bite is rich and buttery, using quality ingredients such as Iowa-grown popcorn popped in coconut oil, peanuts, cashews, pecans, and real bacon or jalapeños. Because of the hands-on production, the team can evenly coat each piece in sweet––but not too sweet––caramel and package each morsel with care.
WhereUBean Coffee's baristas can tell you exactly where their coffee has been before it arrived at the cafe. That's because the shop brews up direct-trade coffee from Intelligentsia. The Chicago-based Intelligentsia sends personnel to coffee plantations in countries including Guatemala, Peru, and Rwanda, where they work directly with coffee growers. The growers, who practice environmentally and socially sustainable growing, benefit from the financial stability the partnership creates as well the opportunity to share their artisanal skills with the world.
Back at WhereUBean, this translates into painstakingly brewed espresso drinks, frothy cappuccinos, and caramel lattes starring Ghirardelli caramel sauce. But the coffee shop doesn't just serve up coffee. They also brew organic Kilogram Tea and whip up scones, muffins, and cookies to pair with the hot beverages.
In 1983 Nord Brue and Mike Dressell decided that it didn't matter how far Burlington, Vermont was from New York City; no distance was too great to limit their access to New York-style bagels. So they spent 2.5 years apprenticing with a professional bagel baker from the city until they mastered the technique. Once they were comfortable with their skills and had accepted that it doesn't actually hurt the bagel to bite it, they opened their first Bruegger's Bagels, a casual bakery and café. Today, they have more than 300 eateries across the United States and Canada, each hawking freshly baked bagels, cream cheeses, sandwiches, coffee, and desserts.
Though he worked as a chef in Europe and on the East Coast, Cafe at Desert Ridge owner Mario Kuja embraced the flavors and flair of Southwestern cuisine upon moving to Arizona. Guided by his 22 years of culinary experience, he infuses many of his dishes with classic Southwestern spices, including the Sonoran burrito and the Southwest chicken salad. However, like a rare pottery collector or a mom who's obsessed with cleaning everything in the world, he doesn't neglect American and European dishes. Mario prepares these in the form of burgers, Mediterranean paninis, and meatball pappardelle.
