Jamba Juice Pairs Up with SYGMA
Jamba Juice and SYGMA, a national foodservice distribution company owned by Sysco Corporation, announced their plans to form a supply chain distribution alliance.
The proposed alliance will enable Jamba to consolidate distribution channels and achieve greater efficiencies in their supply chain as well as position Jamba for faster expansion of services into existing and new geographic locations.
“The move to SYGMA is anticipated to drive several improvements for Jamba Juice,” says Greg Schwartz, senior vice president of supply chain for Jamba Juice.
“We are constantly looking for ways to reduce costs and improve our overall service while focusing on continuous quality improvement. Due to SYGMA’s strong national distribution network, particularly to non-traditional outlets such as airports, universities, and malls, we expect that our alliance will not only help us achieve those goals, but also positions us well to drive additional growth,” Schwartz says.
SYGMA has a robust reporting system to enable faster processing and management of orders. Their relationship with Sysco, the parent company, also provides them access to highly efficient freight and logistics technology.
In anticipation of formalizing their relationship, SYGMA has started servicing Jamba’s 53 Midwest region locations and has plans to begin service to Jamba’s 27 Southeast region locations in late February.
