What are the financial requirements for becoming a Jamba Juice franchisee?


Becoming a Jamba Juice franchisee requires a minimum liquid capital of $80-100K per store in the form of cash, or securities that can be quickly converted to cash. In addition, a minimum net worth of $250-300K per store is required in the form of assets that can be used as collateral for a loan. Jamba Juice requires this level of capital in order to help ensure the first unit is appropriately capitalized and that access to capital is available for building additional units.

How do I find a real estate site?


Finding the right location for your Jamba Juice unit is one of the key factors that drive the success of your business. We can help you by identifying and approving trade areas that we believe fit our requirements. For more detail on our site criteria click on Real Estate Site Criteria. Once you have identified the right trade area, local commercial real estate brokers can then help you find an available site. While you are ultimately responsible for finding the appropriate location for your Jamba unit, we will review and approve every site.

What is the size of a Jamba Juice unit?


The ideal space for a traditional, in-line Jamba unit is 1,000 to 1,200 square feet. In addition, a minimum space width of 20 feet is necessary for an optimal unit layout. We also offer a kiosk concept for non-traditional venues that requires as little as 180 to 230 square feet (plus remote storage space).

After signing of your franchise agreement, you will be in touch with your Regional Franchise Leader who is responsible for directly supporting you. You can count on your RFL for operational input and best practices from hundreds of other Jamba Juice units. In addition, your RFL will visit you regularly to ensure we are meeting your needs and that you are maximizing the potential of your business.


On an ongoing basis, the Jamba Juice Support Center will continue to drive the brand and support your efforts in areas of marketing, real estate and development, supply chain, and IT.
