What would it take for your business to form a strategic partnership with another brand? Would you even consider that type of an offer or does that relationship lack an appeal to leaders in your industry? For Bill Bauernfeind and his team, partnering with Jamba Juice was a no-brainer. In the health and snack world, Jamba Juice has a huge following and is known as a “Trusted brand.” By connecting with Jamba Juice as a marketing partner, Bill was able to leverage their branding to promote a fantastic product.
