Jamba Juice opens their 4th branch and now invading the North side of Manila for the first time and also this is the 4th branch in South East Asia, the new branch is now in SM City North EDSA, the biggest shopping mall in the Philippines and also the 2nd largest mall in the world. The opening of Jamba Juice in SM City North EDSA is the most awaited branch ever, because of the poster and also the large signage posted in a vacant store space that gives more teases to the shoppers to wait for the big launch.
And I’m happy that I’m still alive in covering store opening of Jamba Juice hahhaha. This is their 4th store and also my 4th time to cover their opening, I want to complete all Jamba Juice store opening and I heard that the next store that will open is in SM Megamall and followed by 2 more branches here in Manila.
The branch in SM City North EDSA is much the same like from their 1st branch in Bonifacio Global City, it has seats and tables, but few can accommodate it, and the store stand in the middle of the walkway from The Block and City Center bldg, it’s the most crowdy area of the mall and everyone passes here. If you go to SM City North EDSA and took the walkway from City Center to The Block building, I’m sure you’ll spot Jamba Juice there and it’s impossible for you to miss it hehehehe.
I arrived 30 minutes late and I saw our blogger friends are enjoying their drinks, I did a little survey and everyone are driking the Banana Berry smoothie
Foodies and mommies! (except for Sumi and Carl, not mommies )
I didn’t waited for another minute when I arrived, I lined up and ordered my super ever forever favorite – Banana Berry!
When you order, you can ask for some boost or vitamins add on.
When I lined up, a crew offered this menu leaflet and asked me if I want to try their Strawberries Wild smoothie, my taste buds are for Banana Berry that time, but maybe on my next visit, I’ll try their other all time favorite smoothies.
I’ve tasted all of their food, and here at the launch of Jamba Juice, I started to promote their smokehouse chicken on flatbread, it’s the most yummiest food for me here in Jamba Juice, I told them that I cried when I tasted it hahahah. Their pretzels,twist and wraps are good too.
Next time, I’ll get the name of their cashier person, she takes our order and she’s always present in all Jamba Juice launches
I’m not sure if I have seen this before.. but I love to have these steel water container
There’s an Active Camp activity happening at the event center of The Block, kids will enjoy the playground and trampoline, and there’s a bungy fun, wall climb and the ever popular Jamba Juice Bike Blender, did you know that if you use the bike blender for more than five minutes and join the Give me Five campaign, you are already donating mango seedlings in Guimaras Mango Park, which is the main local mango supplier that Jamba Juice is helping and dubbed that grows the best mangoes in the world.
As usual, when there’s a new branch popping up, it is always full of customers ordering their smoothie.
Here’s a self portrait that I took from their photo booth, there’s always a photo booth in all branches of Jamba Juice, take a pic and send the photo to your email. I hope they have a feature next time that it automatically uploads it to Jamba Juice Facebook.
