Jamba Juice is a smoothie and juice café that is known for their healthy alternatives to sugar packed meals and drinks. When they opened the doors to their first store in 1990 under the name of Juice Club, they were the only free standing healthy juice and smoothie café, similar to what was offered only in small, local health food stores at the time. In 2008 James D. White was hired as the new CEO of Jamba Juice. Bringing his experience from major US food and drug retailer, Safeway, White hoped to come up with a new strategic plan and direction for the company. However, the company faced many difficulties at the time: they had recently entered an area that was in direct competition with the likes of Starbucks and McDonalds, without the financial backing that those restaurants had.

Many people look at the social division as a bad thing, but if all of the people were rich than there would be no need for the growth and develop.

In order to drive other coffee retailers out of business, Starbucks will resort to buying over the coffee retailers and flooding the neighborhoods with new Starbucks outlets to a degree that the sales from existing Starbucks outlets were cannibalized (Katie , 2013). This action does not serve any interest to Starbucks.

Nearly everything is outsourced from this country, we are 100 percent dependent on other countries to produce our items.

To a certain extend I do agree with Professor Meng’s statement, as Chinglish will allow easier communication when making business deals with Chinese companies. However, I believe the essence of Chinglish is the fascinating effort in terms of appealing to English speaking foreigners, and an attempt to allow easier communication between the two races.
