    From Miami Herald article on growing popularity of juicing.

    JAMBA JUICE

    The juicers have spoken and Jamba Juice has answered. The California-based chain and smoothie giant has added 16 new juices this summer to refresh clients. New ingredients include cucumber, ginger and orange, in combinations like Great Greens (a cucumber, supergreens, lemon and chia seeds mix), the Veggie Harvest (beets, supergreens and ginger) and a tangy Orange Carrot twist.

    The chain, founded in 1990, now operates 12 South Florida stores, from West Palm Beach to Miami.

    Increasingly, said Southeast Florida franchise owner Guillermo Perez Vargas, customers are replacing their morning coffee with morning juice.

    “We have seen a very good number of our guests who have started to come on a daily basis,” he said.

    With the growing focus on well-being, it made sense for the chain to give customers healthy juices made from locally picked produce, such as carrots, spinach and apples, he said.

    Nationally, Perez Vargas said, there has been an increase of 4 percent in sales since the new line rolled out in early June; the South Florida stores are on target with the rest of the country. The 12- and 16-ounce juices are priced at about $4 and $5.

    On one recent morning, Jamba Juice regular Meghan Gonzalez, a 29-year-old environmental sciences professor, slurped down an orange juice, kale and banana mix called a Kale Orange Power. She goes to the Jamba Juice in Florida International University’s Graham Center twice a week, she said, drawn by their tasty flavors.

    Stella Russotti, an FIU religious studies sophomore, made her first test of the chain’s new juices earlier this month: a plum-colored Orange Berry Antioxidant. Due to a heart condition, she tries to eat a balanced diet every day.

    “That’s yummy,” she said when she got her juice, raising her eyebrows.

    She’ll be back to try some more, she promised.

    An analyst at Craig Hallum placed an 18 dollar price target on JMBA. I am curious as to why they are so optimistic.

    Jambago revenue grew from 100k in q1 2013 to 700k this last quarter, this is significant growth (60 percent of this revenue falls to the bottom line). If they can add a few thousand more Jambago units the company starts looking very interesting.
