“With the pending expiration of our lease in Emeryville at the end of 2016, we explored a number of location options that would offer us competitive operating costs, a region with extensive access to skilled restaurant talent, an attractive cost of living to our current and future team members, and a geographical location that facilitates our ability to expand our store base,” David A. Pace, CEO of Jamba said in a statement. “The State of Texas meets all of these criteria and Frisco is a community committed to healthy living that aligns closely with our overall mission.”
About 100 people will work in the company’s new Frisco office. Jamba’s new facility at 3001 Dallas Parkway will include 19,000 square feet of office and meeting space and a 6,000-square-foot test kitchen and storefront. Cushman & Wakefield’s Robbie Baty and Bill McClung brokered the lease with building owner Hall Group’s Kim Butler, Brad Gibson and Tammy Nellis.
The deal to move the company to North Texas includes grants from both the City of Frisco and the Texas Enterprise Fund – which provided an $800,000 grant.
