Jamba Juice, a Proud National Sponsor of PTA, came to life in 1990 by four young friends who shared a common dream of creating a natural, pure, simple, healthy way of eating to complement an active lifestyle. Wanting to make it accessible to all, the founders took nature's best and ensured what they were creating was wholesome, delicious and affordable, while keeping it fun. Since its inception almost 20 years ago, Jamba Juice has grown from one small store in the beach town of San Luis Obispo into an organization where more than 9,000 team members fill over 700 stores across 22 states and a growing international presence.
With health and wellness at its forefront, the Jamba Juice founders laid the groundwork for the evolution of Jamba Juice to grow beyond smoothies into a "leading active, healthy, lifestyle brand" offering high quality products made with premium ingredients that are great tasting and better for you, both inside and outside of our stores. At Jamba, we believe eating healthier shouldn't be hard – it should be a pleasure. We strive to take the work out of it for you in a convenient, portable meal. You don't have to sacrifice eating healthier for great taste.
Jamba Juice has had a longtime commitment to supporting local schools through fundraising efforts—inspiring and simplifying healthy living for children and parents alike. Jamba Juice furthers National PTA's mission to increase family engagement in their children's schools by providing additional funding for local PTA's to create and execute programs that promote physical activity and encourage healthier eating.
