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. The initiative fights childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

The shelves of Legendary Doughnuts are lined each day with an ever-changing variety of hand-rolled, fresh fried treats topped with unconventional frostings and toppings. Shoppers can sink their teeth into the extra-large glazed Homer Simpson or try the George Washington, a chocolate-cake donut with chocolate-cherry ganache and almond slices. Old-fashioned varieties include the lemon-coconut donut with a lemon glaze and a crown of coconut, and specialties include the Fluff-A-Nutter stuffed with banana, peanut butter, and marshmallow. Legendary Doughnuts fills custom orders, too, whether customers would like an assortment of seasonal donuts, a tower of 25 donut balls, or a special plate of three donuts stacked and decorated to look like a hamburger.

At 6:30 each morning, the doors to Rain City Cafe and Coffee open to unleash the smell of freshly percolated espresso and coffee. The baristas pack the deli-counter cases with breakfast sandwiches from Mike’s East Coast Sanwiches, pastries from Corina’s Bakery, and bagels from Bagel Boyz.

While they import all of their morning eats, they craft their own afternoon meals. The resident sandwich artist, Sean, makes a selection of sammies, grilled paninis, giant wraps, and salads.
