Traditional- Traditional locations are characterized as a business premise that exists primarily as a Jamba Juice store. Traditional stores in the past averaged approximately 1,400 square feet in size. These stores are located either in major urban centers or in suburban strip mall centers 
Non-Traditional-Jamba Juice store located within another primary business in conjunction with other businesses or at institutional settings such as colleges and universities, shopping malls, supermarkets and airports.
Jamba Inc offers a wide variety of healthy choice smoothies, as well as teas, Juice, and meals. All of their products follow their philosophy of natural ingrediants with no preservations and 0 trans grams fat.

Top three competitors are: Maui Wowi Franchising, Inc. Smoothie King Franchises Inc. Starbucks Corporation.
Supplier Power- Low. Jamba prides itself in serving healthy foods and only healthy foods. They also pride themselves on using fresh fruit. If the the fruit they are currently buying raises in prices all of a sudden then the franchise can just choose to buy its fruit from another supplier. For this reason there isn't really that much power. Plus the store is franchised so every Jamba Juice buys it's products from a different supplier, it's not like they all depend on one.
Buyer Power- Medium. The public is pretty used to it's lifestyle of fast food. Chains like this are based mostly on convenience. Also the fact that this store goes off of a healthy lifestyle, they are going to get a niche market who will support them no matter what.
Degree of Rivalry- Very high. There are a lot of restaurants that sell smoothies and also some that sell healthy food. Because of this Jamba Juice has to work hard to stay ahead of the competition. Usually once a customer chooses a place they like they stick with it. It's just getting the customer to stick with them.
Threat of Substitutes- Low. There isn't an alternative to healthy food or smoothies really.
Threat of new entry- Low. Most of these restaurants are pretty established and have a core customer base who are loyal to their products. The only threat of new entry they have is if an establish restaurant who doesn't sell smoothies decides to add smoothies to their menu.
Strengths - They are known for selling healthy products and live up to that expectation. They sell only healthy products, and they showcase they have a lot of knowledge and craft in what they make. These types of places usually get a base crowd of die-hard buyers, and rarely you lose this competition since there aren't other stores like this around. Their products are ahead of the competition and they are a good place to go for somebody who is looking for a healthy alternative to snacks.
Weaknesses - Their main focus is just drinks. People in general don't go nuts over smoothies, no matter how well they are made. Smoothies are awesome to make, and people that make them are the ones who know that they are great products. They may be also the last people to buy smoothies. If you don't get a base-crowd or some type of buzz to get people down on your product, it is very easy for them to stray off elsewhere. Why go to a smoothie type restaurant when you can go somewhere else and get a smoothie and a burger? Another weakness for Jamba Juice is that it doesn't focus its competition on other smoothie makers. It focuses on places like Starbucks and Dairy Queen. They need to branch out and advertise their newly added coffee products. This makes them a company that has products that satisfy all year round, not just during the summer.
Opportunities - You could easily expand in those young professional towns. Small companies like this are very easy to start up and generally succeed. Another opportunity that they ahve is the fact that their product is healthy. By continueing to add healthy items to their menu they will keep a hold on their customer base. They also have the opportunity to make their drinks even more fresh, to get ahead of the competition.
Threat - Bad marketing. You never really hear of them. They aren't in a lot of malls and are never advertised on television or radio. Increased costs of fruit transportation and growing industry. All transportation and agricultural costs are going up. Since you have a franchised menu, I doubt you are getting your fruit products from different places. They should consider to buy local to cut these costs. Over expansion can also take away from the specialty of Jamba Juice.
