This marketing plancontains strategy not only for Jamba Juice Thailand to gain customers but also to develop win-win situation with its employees, its suppliers as wells society at large. 3
  4. 4. Situational AnalysisI. OVERALL VIEW OF JAMBA JUICE Jamba Juice is a US based franchise that serves healthy blended juices and otherhealthy products (Jamba Juice 2009a). Jambas juice vision is “to be the leading healthy lifestylebrand offering consumers great-tasting and better-for-you products” (Jamba Juice 2009b). In2009, Jamba Juice was named the #1 Healthy options in the Quick Refreshment category inZagats 2009 Fast Food Survey (Jamba Juice 2009c).II. PRODUCTS AND DISTRIBUTIONA) Product Mix The product mix that will be found at Jamba juice locations in Thailand will be the same asthe US based stores. The products lines that will be found in Jamba Juice Thailand include 1. Grab and Go Foods 2. California Flatbreads 3. Iced Fruit Tea Infusions 4. Ideal Meals 5. Hot Oatmeal 6. Fresh Squeezed Juices 7. All Fruit 8. Jamba Light (Smoothies) 9. Blended with a purpose 10. Jamba Classics (Smoothies) 11. Creamy Treats 12. Shots 13. Boosts 14. Baked GoodsSource: ( The complete list of products that will be offered in Jamba Juice will be found inthe appendix.Jamba Juice products are ideal for people who are health conscious and want healthysnacks/meals but don’t have the time or energy to make healthy foods. The main product ofJamba Juice, its fruit smoothies, contains the vitamins, minerals, fibers, and other nutrients thatallow people to stay healthy. These smoothies can either be consumed as a healthy, greattasting treat, or a substitute for breakfast, lunch, dinner. 4
  5. 5. B) DistributionIn the first year of operation in Thailand, there will be 5 corporate owned Jamba Juice locationsin Thailand. The locations will at Central Changwattana, Central World, Siam Paragon, CentralChidlom and Emporium. Jamba Juice will be located in these high end malls because peoplewho shop at these locations are likely to have to money to afford Jamba Juice products.C) Price of Jamba Juice products in ThailandThe prices for Grab and Go Foods, California Flatbreads, Baked Goods, Creamy Treats, IdealMeals, Hot Oatmeal will range from 80 baht to 170baht. The prices for all the smoothies, freshsqueezed drinks, ice teas will range from 90baht to 200 baht.II. MARKET SUMMARY AND COMPETITORS ANALYSISA) Market Summary towards health food in Thailand There is a huge trend in Thailand towards healthy foods. According to ViwatLimsakdakul, the managing director of Tipco Foods (Thailand),“Healthiness is a rapidly growing business in Thailand and abroad in which opportunitiesabound. Globally as well as locally, people tend to be more health-conscious. Their eatinghabits and what they eat and drink are changing as they wish to live longer than the previousgeneration. They also have more income to dispose [of] and take care of their health. Forinstance, many prefer to take less or no sugar in beverages. As a result, the sales of carbonatedcola drinks here and abroad have been on the downtrend for years whereas natural fruit juices,functional and sport drinks as well as bottled water are enjoying double-digit growth rates," saysViwat, whose firm aims to be a leading food company in Southeast Asia” (Limsamarnphun, TheNation)III. COMPTEITORS ANALYSIS Based on looking around at the various malls in Bangkok, there isn’t any majorcompetition in terms of smoothie/healthy lifestyle chain in Bangkok. In my opinion, the majorcompetitor for the Jamba Juice in Bangkok is Squeeze by Tipco- a juice bar owned Tipco. Thesmoothie’s price range from 69 baht to 89 baht (Source: Went to Squeeze by Central world).Examples of the types of smoothes they have include Mega Smoothes (Extra Fruits Extra Jelly), 5
  6. 6. Citrus N’Tropical (Citrus and Tropical Fruits), Berry Fever(Berry Fruits). Other fruit products thatSqueeze has include pure juice, healing juice, Super Boost (Source: Squeeze) Other direct competitors of Jamba Juice that have fruit smoothies in Thailand include areplaces that Mad about juice, Buddhi Frozen yogurt as well as mom and pop smoothie stand.The indirect competitors to Jamba Juice include quick service restaurants such as McDonalds,Burger King, KFC, Starbucks, ice cream shop that sells smoothies, restaurants that sellsmoothies, bakeries, and in home dining.III. SWOT ANALYSIS FOR JAMBA JUICE IN THAILAND • Strengths o Wide range of smoothies for treats or meal replacement o Has complementary sandwiches, salads, bakeries for breakfast, lunch, dinner o California-Healthy lifestyle brand o Fun, energizing store environment o Success in the US market • Opportunities: o There is no big fruit smoothie /healthy big chain in Thailand o Health Conscious trend in Thailand o Starbuck’s proved that it can survive in the Thailand market • Weakness: o High prices of Jamba Juice products o Compared to Starbucks, or McDonalds there is no sitting places where people can hang out for hours o Lack of awareness of Jamba Juice by target market at the launch • Threats: o Bad economy o Political instability o Labor costs o The fluxuation of prices of perishable and non-perishable goods that is needed to make Jamba juice products o Small, mom and pop fruit smoothie chains o Quick Service Restaurants such as Burger king, Subway, McDonalds, KFC 6
  7. 7. o Refrigerated fruit juices found in stores such as Tops, Tesco, Big C, and 7 elevenIII. Competitive advantage FOR JAMBA JUICE Unlike the direct competitors, Jamba Juice is a healthy life style brand. Not only does JambaJuice have a variety of great tasting smoothies and teas, but Jamba juice has other productsthat address its customer’s desire for healthy living such as salad, baked goods, wraps. JambaJuice has extensive product portfolio that caters to every type of health conscious consumers.For example. • Jamba Juice has smoothies such as energizer, antioxidant, protein, cold busters that are blended for a specific purpose ( • Jamba juice has vegan, non-glutton, and non-dairy products ( • Jamba juice has oatmeal’s that are 100% organic ( • Jamba Juice has a line of grab-go food and California flat breads that contain no artificial flavors, no artificial preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup (Jamba Juice 2009d) Unlike Jamba Juice competitors, Jamba Juice has treats and meals for every part of the day(breakfast, lunch, mid-afternoon, and dinner). Unlike its competitors, going to a Jamba Juice isan experience in which its store decorations, its employee, the store experience adds tocustomer feeling of energy, fun, and the benefits healthy California living. 7
