The founder of hugely successful Boost Juice Bars, Janine has grown it to become the number one juice bar business in the Southern Hemisphere. With plans to open throughout the UK and Asia. Janine admits she never imagined she would be leading a multi-million dollar empire, turning over $100 million annually in sales. A working Mum she epitomises the company slogan "Love Life".
Janine Allis is Founder and Director of Boost Juice Bars - the largest and fastest growing juice and smoothie chain in the Southern Hemisphere. With outlets in more countries than any other smoothie chain, and currently pursuing an aggressive international expansion strategy, Boost Juice is well on the way to achieving their aim of being the -worlds most loved & favorite brand.
Janine and her team have grown the innovative youth-based business from one store in Adelaide, South Australia to over 200 stores all over the world. A recent deal with Nestle, UK means the growth of Boost Juice's 'Ready to Drink' products throughout that region. This launch is supported by a 12.5 million dollar launch campaign.
Janine has experience across a wide range of industries. Previously she worked as a publicist in the arts and entertainment industries, a cinema manager in Australia and Singapore, an advertising executive and as head stewardess on David Bowie's yacht.
Janine's desire to own her own business led her to look at the retail market and review what the market was lacking as a consumer. Janine and her husband, Jeff trialed a number of businesses like publishing and touring comedians, but nothing truly got the business juices flowing. That was until they noticed there was a lack of truly healthy fast food in the market place. Janine did extensive research world-wide and started to develop a business concept that was different to anything else in the world. Her vision was to do retailing differently, delivering a unique customer experience based on the 'love life' philosophy of Boost.
Janine's leadership style is natural, warm, giving and inspiring. People are extremely motivated by her to achieve amazing results. Janine describes herself as having a very 'hands on' approach toward the running of Boost Juice, which has enabled her to fully understand and develop the growing business. She now recognises that her role currently is less of a manager and more of a leader. Her motto is to try to keep life and business simple and to enjoy the journey as much as the results!
