EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jamba Juice, a leading health and wellness brand, announced today that as part of its Long Island N.Y. expansion it has opened a new café inside the East Northport Stop & Shop located at 3126 Jericho Turnpike. This is the second Jamba Juice café to open inside a Stop & Shop following the April 1st opening of the store in Huntington, located at 1100 E. Jericho Turnpike. The East Northport location also features Timothy’s World Coffee, known for its top quality coffee and coffee blends.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to offer the refreshing and nutritious goodness of Jamba Juice and Timothy’s World Coffee cafe to the East Northport community,” said franchise partner, Tina Menexas, of Vanderbilt Management. “Customers and guests will love the convenience and enjoy the signature menu offerings.”
