EMERYVILLE, Calif., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ: JMBA), a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand, is taking its passion for healthy living to the beach as part of the 2014 Vans U.S. Open of Surfing. Uniting surfers, skaters and BMX riders in Huntington Beach, Calif. for the largest action sports festival in the world, Jamba Juice will serve up its new freshly squeezed juices to athletes, media and event VIPs during the event finals from July 31 - August 3, 2014.
"The U.S. Open of Surfing and the healthy, active lifestyles of these world-class athletes perfectly align with the Jamba Juice vision of inspiring and simplifying healthy living," said Julie Washington, senior vice president and chief brand officer of Jamba Juice. "With our freshly squeezed juices, we blend in the good with whole fruits and vegetables to make consumers great tasting products that provide consumers and athletes, such as the U.S. Open surfers, with the nutrients and energy they need to feel their best and perform their best all year long."
Jamba Juice is expected to distribute more than 2,000 of its new freshly squeezed juices on site to event VIPS. Additionally, event-goers can take part in a fun Jamba Juice photo booth opportunity at Sponsor Village from July 31 – August 3, 2014 to show how they "Blend in the Good" using #JuiceByJamba for a chance to win Jamba Juice gift cards.
