IT'S ALL ABOUT THE HEALTH
In 1999, Janine Allis visited the USA, and noticed that there were juice and smoothie bars everywhere. A working mum, and advocate of conscious food habits, she returned to Australia, her home country, with the idea of opening a Juice Bar in this country. Today, the brand operates in 17 countries, more than any other juice bar in the world, delivering fresh and healthy drinks, and the philosophy to "love life".
Boost was developed by Janine from its very beginning, she developed the structures, business plan and ethics, which became the backbone of Boost store since. She chose to open the first store in Adelaide because she wanted to start small, lessening the financial risk. Now, the brand has over 350 stores, growing at an average rate of two countries and 30 stores every year for four years.
Boost's philosophy is based on the principle of understanding the costumers, what they want, and how they want it, and deliver it. Without this, Boost wouldn't be able to produce the variety of juices, smoothies, and the likes, that are featured in their menu. They actually do something called "Focus group research", which consists of getting big groups of customers into a room, and talk about what they like and don't like about Boost, giving the brand a really good insight on how to improve itself.
At Boost, the environment is very cared for, known to be vitally important. They work to try and minimise the impact on the planet. One of the measures taken for this mission, was to use paper cups. They chose these, for a number of reasons: they are manufactured from a renewable and sustainable resource; printed using non-toxic, food-safe inks, which are not harmful to the environment; and more than 98% of the paper component is biodegradable. Boost is now associated with the Australian Packaging Covenant, and moving to paper cups is one of the first steps taken to on the path to becoming more sustainable.
