Jamba Juice Adds Food to Its Menu

Keeping customers’ wants in mind, Jamba Juice launched its new menu this week. Research showed customers don’t feel a smoothie alone is enough of a meal, and that they want food with their smoothie.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • David took a personal interest in me. 

    My relationship with David Israel began in early May/late April.  I use the term “relationship” because from the get go and through our conversations he began putting together a list of clients that would fit my skill set.  By reworking my resume, he made me more attractive to the possible opportunities (My resume was, needless to say, a hot mess), and got me into the room to talk to multiple employers where I could sell myself on those said skills.  Because of David, I was afforded two offers from companies so I could weigh the pros & cons, and make a choice that best suits myself, and my family.  The end result is I begin my new job next week!  My man David is not only an excellent recruiter, but truly a good man who will take a more personal approach to make sure you get a chance to make that first impression.  My only regret?  I will miss our conversations getting to know him better, and sharing in our life experiences.
    Warmest Regards,
    Kevin Mobley

  • Milton was a pleasure to work with

    Milton Sallee found several options that were matched with my experience and what I was looking for in a career change.  He did a great job of communicating with me, updates and changes throughout the process.  Without his guidance and expertise, I would not have found the position I have today.
    Thank You Milton!
