Systems Services of America and Jamba Juice Form West Coast Distribution Alliance

EMERYVILLE, CA ( October 9, 2012 - Business Wire)—Jamba Juice Company and Systems Services of America announced the formation of a supply chain distribution alliance for service on the West Coast of the United States.

The alliance is expected to enable greater supply chain efficiencies and enhance service to existing Jamba Juice® locations, while broadening the reach Jamba® has into new territories as it considers its future growth opportunities.

In December of last year, Jamba Juice formed a similar alliance with US Foods, but covering the northeastern region of the United States.

“Jamba is constantly looking for new ways to reduce costs and increase productivity through access to value-added resources and technology. We believe that this alliance will provide greater supply chain efficiencies and enhanced service to Jamba Juice outlets as well as facilitate rapid supply distribution in the face of our anticipated growth into new regions,” said James D. White, Chairman, President, and CEO, Jamba Juice Company.

Systems Services of America (SSA) is recognized as one of the leading innovative chain account distributors operating four western distribution centers and serving nine western states.
