Hometown boy does good

Wow. Just saw this story about Jamba Juice. Nice!

I know one of the founders personally and I just have to say congratulations! It's amazing what a few credit cards and a bridge loan from a parent can do for someone! He started what became Jamba Juice in later years with a recipe his dad used during the summers to give the kids something good to have as a snack. He also ended up quitting college (much to everyone's dismay) to start this business. Ingenuity, hard work, and a creative financing program can yield some serious success on occasion. Let's not dismiss the hard work part. He's one of the hardest working guys I know.

Those old family concotions really paid off. I know the whole family must be happy now!
