Jamba, a California-based holding company that owns and franchises Jamba Juice stores through its wholly-owned subsidiary Jamba Juice Company, has registered total revenue of $66m for the second quarter ended 3 July 2012, marking an increase of 12.2% over $58.9m during the same period last year.

Net income for the latest quarter was $4.6m, or $0.05 diluted earnings per share, compared to $3.9m, or $0.05 diluted earnings per share for the previous year.

Jamba’s system-wide comparable store sales were increased by 5.7%, franchise-operated comparable store sales were increased by 6.4% and company-owned stores sales were increased 5.1% compared to the same period last year.

During the latest quarter, the company has opened 13 new stores in the US and new franchise units in Canada (four), South Korea (one), Philippines (one) and the US (seven).

Jamba chairman, president and CEO James White said the company has experienced yet another strong quarter with gains in comparable store sales, store traffic, average price and adjusted operating margin.

"We are accelerating our growth as a healthy, active lifestyle brand through product and menu innovation, retail growth in the U.S. and internationally, and expansion of our consumer products platform," White added.

"Our product innovation was highlighted with the introduction of a reduced calorie line of our classic smoothies, a new summer flavor for our Fruit Refreshers and yogurts and, recently, our new fruit and dairy beverage — developed with the National Dairy Council for K-12 schools — that combines the benefits of fat-free milk with nutrient-rich real fruit in a naturally sweetened smoothie.

"Internationally Jamba has grown to 30 units in 18 months with 20 outlets in South Korea, seven in Canada and three in the Philippines. For the full year, we plan to open up to 15 units internationally and 40-50 in the U.S."
