Jamba JuiceA® Announces National Hiring Day, Continuing Its Commitment To Summer Youth Employment

Stocks in this article: JMBA

EMERYVILLE, Calif. , March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ: JMBA), a leading healthy, active lifestyle company, will today announce the company's third National Hiring Day (NHD) initiative. This innovative program received recognition from President Obama in 2013 as a leading example of how the private and public sectors can work together to create jobs for the nation's youth. Jamba partners with the San Francisco Treasure Island Job Corps as one way to attract potential team members who bring strong culinary skills, and leverages many of its franchise partners as a way to show how small business owners can help stimulate job growth.

Jamba Juice Company is a leading restaurant retailer of better-for-you, specialty beverage and food offerings, which include great tasting, whole fruit smoothies, fresh-squeezed juices and juice blends, hot coffee and teas, hot oatmeal, breakfast wraps, sandwiches and mini-wraps, Artisan Flatbreads, frozen yogurt, and a variety of baked goods and snacks.

For the two years during which Jamba has run the campaign the Company exceeded its hiring goals. In 2013, Jamba pledged to hire 2,500 summer youth and exceeded its pledge by nearly 250 percent, hiring over 6,600 employees nationwide. As the program continues to evolve, in 2014 Jamba is leveraging social media and an online application format to simplify the process. Interviews will also take place in Jamba stores across the nation on Thursday, March 20, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  

At a press conference, scheduled for Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 9:00 a.m. PDT, at the San Francisco Treasure Island Job Corps, James D. White, Jamba Juice chairman, president and CEO, will formally announce 2014 National Hiring Day goals.

"We continue to be committed to helping our nation's youth gain valuable skills and work experience that will be critical to their future career success," said Mr. White. "Our team members are passionate about what we stand for as a brand. Our healthy, better for you products and our service to the community make Jamba a great place to work."

Jamba Juice National Hiring Day is part of the Company's "Team Up For a Healthy Whirl'd" corporate responsibility efforts.
