SPC Group, most well known as the owners of Paris Croissant, have aspirations of Korean smoothie conquest as they launch their fifth Korean Jamba Juice franchise location in five months. It's also their fourth location "south of the Han." The only exception is their first location in Incheon's airport.
The most recent opening is in Seocho near the Daebeobwon, South Korea's Supreme Court.
“The Jamba brand continues to be enthusiastically received by the South Korean population,” according to Thibault de Chatellus, Jamba Juice's senior vice president International in a company press release, “We are pleased with our early success in South Korea and look forward to growing and developing our brand in other international markets.”
If you want to find it for yourself, the exact address is 서울 서초구 서초동 1327-1 홍우빌딩 1층, which translates roughly as Seoul, Seochu-gu, Seochu-dong on the first floor of the Hongwoo building. The quickest way to get there is to take the subway line 2, to the Gangnam station, exit 4. Walk about two blocks south from exit 4 and it will be on your left.
