This proposal discusses the benefits of bringing Jamba juice into Palm Beach Internationals (PBIA) Terminal M. Opening a Jamba Juice franchise in Terminal M will help maximize PBIAs profits and also give the customers an overall better experience.
Proposal to Bring Jamba Juice to Terminal M
Jamba Juice is a great option for the travelers that want to enjoy our in dining experience as they await their flight. Also, for those travelers running behind and need a quick bite to eat they can carry on board. PBIA needs to give those travelers the option to have the ability to find healthy options on the go.
Jamba Juice is aware of the environmental changes that have been occurring over the years. Society has been slowly creating a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Since society has changed their outlook on the environment, so have we. Our company is careful when picking certain products, because we understand the impact we have on the environment. Jamba has been working with a variety of organizations examining alternative options for removing polystyrene and other waste from their waste stream, expanding their use of more sustainable packaging, and managing energy consumption (JambaJuice,2012).
Benefits of having a Jamba Juice
Along with being a healthy company, we also give our customers our best service. Considering operating in an airport, our customers will always be on the go. Our order system times the employees and alerts when they have passed three minutes on one order. The system is a great way to keep the flow of people moving, and creating shorter lines. Shorter lines tend to attract more people, especially those in a hurry.
Commitment to Palm Beach County
At Jamba Juice one of our main priorities is to be able to give back to the community. Our commitment with Palm Beach county is to interact as much as possible with the residents, by providing opportunities to learn about the beneficial factors of nutrition. Opening our store in terminal M would give the palm beach community options for employment opportunities they can grow in.
Jamba Juice is pleased to hear about the new renovations at the Palm Beach International Airport (PBIA). We have been informed the PBIA will be creating the new Terminal M. We would like to propose opening a Jamba Juice in Terminal M as a healthy juice and snack bar for the passengers.
Jamba Juice is always looking for exciting new opportunities to share its deliciously healthy and refreshing meals with more customers. Along with smoothies we will provide PBIA customers with tasty bites, fresh-squeezed juices, coffees and teas and frozen yogurt whirls. Jamba Juice is healthy made simple â„¢. We believe its uniqueness as a healthy alternative to other restaurants is a sure way to enhance the overall experience of PBIAs travelers.
The smoothies and baked goods are the perfect travel meal. It is the on-the-go, better-for-you option. The customers we so easily please are the ones living in a fast paced environment, such as those frequenting the PBIA. While our service is fast, there is also the beneficial factor of being able to finish your meal while waiting to board, or bringing it along without having to worry about a mess. Jamba Juice firmly believes that employee satisfaction ultimately leads to gaining customer satisfaction.
Within the proposal we will discuss the time needed to setup Jamba Juice in Terminal M. If you accept the proposal our architect, Lippincott, will provide a floor plan for your review. We did however provide measurements for the terminal within the proposal.
In the following pages we will cover the costs of setup, a specific work plan, and our qualifications.

Jamba Juice has been operating for twenty years, and has expanded internationally. Jamba Juice founder, Kirk Perron, opened his first store in 1990 in San Luis Obispo, California. The large success from one store has led to 752 others. Our sales for 2011 were $263 million, marking an increase in revenue by 15.3% from the year before.

Indeed, Jamba Juice continues to expand, and awaits the opening of 28 new stores scheduled for this year around the United States.
Although we are a franchise and this will be our first experience, we are confident in performing the necessary duties to create a successful business. Whenever there is a new Jamba Juice franchise planning to open, Jamba Juice requires one of their operating partners or general managers to attend the stores opening for six weeks full time. He/She provides a unit training program that will teach the staff the day-to-day operations. In addition to Jamba Juices training program, there is also an orientation program.
The orientation program encourages the workers to take advantage of Jamba Juices support center involving areas such as marketing, real estate and development, and IT and supply chain. The support center is vital for a successful franchise. Below are some of the many benefits the supply center provides;
Access to a strong relationship Jamba Juice has made with vendors. This means our franchise will have already negotiated volume discounts that will create savings. In turn we will increase revenue for both parties, by keeping our costs low. The Region Franchise Manager (RFM) supports our franchise by aiding us in our operations and practices. RFM guarantees we are working at our full potential by creating regular visits to our franchise. RFM also markets for all the franchises. This will keep our marketing expenses very low.
Our personnel must meet minimum requirements to work at our store. In order to be a general manager the employee must have a bachelors degree or significant experience leading alike companies. We keep our staff motivated by having a great team member program. This includes benefits, lots of coverage for a low price, and a 401(k) program.

At Jamba Juice, we always talk about how our brand comes to life through its people. The success throughout our stores is a perfect demonstration of the importance of empowering every team member to take ownership in achieving our companys goals. By providing the right tools and having fun with our training programs, we can help our team members deliver a wow experience for our customers every time. says CEO Paul Clayton.
Our high standards for quality employees guarentees that customers have an above satisfactory visit to Jamba Juice. We are aware of the importance our experience has on the travelers opinion of PBIA. We are confident our staff will only add value to their time at the airport.
Jamba Juice believes the quality of their products is directly related to their customers and employees satisfaction. Therefore, we are always operating at our fullest potential. Our employees feelings towards their workplace plays a vital role in customer satisfaction. We have gathered a few comments employees and customer have said about our business.
At the time, Bradley was training to be store manager at a local Jamba Juice. It is employees like him that truly bring a great experience to the customers.
I love working at Jamba because my hard work and passion never goes unnoticed. I truly feel that Jamba has invested in me and cares for my personal and professional development. Im lucky that I have a company I love going to work for. The vibe, from the Support Center team all the way
down to the part time team member, is one of support. We are all in this together, and it truly feels like that.
Below is a customer who appreciates Jamba Juices healthy nutritious meals, and their low prices compared to fast food restaurants.
When I first tried Jamba Juice I was drinking them as a snack or in addition to my lunch or breakfast. This was a mistake. Jamba Juice, I soon realized, is definitely a meal. And whats great is that now they have a smaller size (sixteen) for those days when you dont feel hungry enough for a full 24 ounces. I have noticed a lot of people complaining about the price of a Jamba Juice smoothie, but when you think of your smoothie as breakfast, lunch or dinner it really is pretty cheap (especially for fast food).( http://www.epinions.com/reviews/rest-Chain_Restaurants-All-Jamba_Juice?sb=1)
Architecture and Design
Jamba Juices facilities was designed by Lippincott. Lippincott was founded in 1990. Their first project was creating a central theme to portray Jamba Juices commitment to healthy living. Lippincott is responsible for designing our interior and exterior architecture, communicating our brand to customers, anticipating customer flow and our menu system.
Lippincotts Customer Experience Mapping (CEM) technique allowed customers a to feel that wow affect when inside Jamba Juice. CEM uses architecture to encourage impulse purchases, menu comprehension and a healthy food setting.
Through the CEM technique, Lippincott created three macro-themed design concepts. Health and wellness, guilt-free pleasure and energy-on-the-go are the main subjects Jamba Juice was founded on. When executing the macro-theme, Lippincott depended on millwork, colors and material, fabrics and environmental themes to express our vision.
Our carefully designed stores are also leading roles that helped us reach success. We believe PBIA travelers will be drawn to our store because of vibrant colors and intuitive design.
Jamba Juice offers different spacing options depending on the type of store that is being opened. There are the traditional stores which need 1,200 to 1,400 square footage of spacing. Then, there are the smaller formats, or the non-traditional venues, these can be set up within 180 to 230 square footage. Depending on the final measurements of PBIAs Terminal M we can then decide which is more appropriate.
After 20 years of service and revenue reaching $263 million at the end of 2010 fiscal year, we are confident in the success we can bring to Terminal M. Our wide variety of fruit smoothies and hot meals will provide an easy on-the-go healthy alternative to any fast food chain for your PBIA travelers. Our long standing organization is an example of our ability to run a successful franchise in your airport. We will be looking forward to a response once you have reviewed our proposal.
