Q: How has the location in the Wellesley, Boston Sports Club been? A: We love our location in the Wellesley, Boston Sports Club. The club management is great and has done an outstanding job getting the word out to the members. The personal trainers love our products and encourage the members to enjoy a fruit smoothie or a delicious protein shake as a meal replacement.
Q: How has business been in the current recession? A: As surprising as this is going to sound we have actually benefitted from the recession. More people are coming to the gym as people want to get their money's worth. The more people that visit the gym, the more potential customers. Even if they just buy a bottle of water or a Gatorade it helps.
Q: How does your business differ from Jamba Juice? A: We buy the highest-quality ingredients, like organic wheatgrass that's locally grown. We feature exotic fruits like Acai, Goji and Mangosteen in our smoothies. These fruits are often referred to as "super foods" and are the highest in antioxidants. Our other fruits are flown in from California and flash frozen so that every smoothie has the perfect ripeness of fruit in it giving it the perfect taste every time.
Q: What is the average cost of a juice? A: The average cost of smoothie is about $4. We also have a variety of "boosts" in many of our smoothies. The customer can choose from a number of different boosts like protein, fat burner or energy. When you add a protein boost, it makes a great midday meal or snack.
Q: What is the most popular product? A: Our most popular product would have to be our Peanut Butter Blast. It is our number one selling protein shake. It is made from non-fat milk, non-fat vanilla yogurt, peanut butter, and chocolate whey protein. Once you try it ... you'll be hooked. Our Wheat Grass is very popular as well. Our Wheat Grass customers are some of our most loyal since they know that a wheat grass shot a day, keeps the doctor away.
