Jamba Inc. announced today that its expanded fresh-squeezed juice menu will be available in over 500 Jamba Juice stores nationally as of June 2. Due to overwhelming consumer response in the pilot launch, the company accelerated the national roll out of the expanded fresh-squeezed juice platform, previously forecasted to be in 500 stores by the close of 2014.
Health continues to be the driving trend for menu development and product innovation in the limited-service restaurant space—and that’s not changing any time soon.
At this year’s National Restaurant Association’s (NRA) Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, Jane Grote Abell, founder and chairman of Donatos Pizza; Susan Shields, CIO of Jamba Juice; and Greg Dollarhyde, CEO of Veggie Grill, joined moderator Aaron Noveshen, president of The Culinary Edge, in a discussion on winning consumers through menu innovation.
Whether or not consumers are flocking to the better-for-you items they’re demanding from quick-serve restaurants is up for debate, but there’s really no argument about yogurt’s success. The dairy product’s growth is hard to ignore; according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data, yogurt production doubled between 2002 and 2012 to meet demand.
Quick-serve corporate offices generally dictate cobranding partnerships. But, as in Arturo Zindel’s case, sometimes a franchisee’s passion for another brand motivates the executive team to agree to new partnership opportunities.
Zindel, a Jamba Juice franchisee, plans to open five cobranded stores with Bruegger’s Bagels.
Bruegger’s Bagels, a leading fast casual bagel bakery known for its fresh-baked New York-style bagels, announced a multiunit development agreement with West Palm Beach, Florida-based Great Service Restaurants.
Long dominated by the likes of Twinkies and soda, the vending world is now counting quick-serve specialties among its selections. Consumers craving a fix from some of their favorite brands are no longer restricted by regular hours of operation, and operators can boost sales with a small initial investment and low operating costs.
“It’s becoming more and more prevalent,” says Steven Brush, cofounder of the consulting service iBrandEz, which specializes in nontraditional franchising. “Customer occasion marketing basically means where-I-want-it, when-I-want-it types of foods.”
