Jamba Juice has extended its distribution agreement with Sygma in the US to include the states of Colorado and Texas.

In February last year, the two companies formed a distribution alliance last year, which saw Sysco Corp-owned Sygma begin distributing Jamba's products to selected mid-west and south-east locations. Last week, Jamba said that its extension to the deal "opens the door to accelerated growth" for the firm in the US.

"Based on the results of our initial business relationship, we have decided to expand our existing programme to include broader coverage into new territories," said Jamba Juice's senior VP of supply chain, Greg Schwartz.

"Sygma now services a significant number of Jamba locations nationwide," he added. "Ability to access Sysco's entire network of resources has proven beneficial in further extending our international capabilities, enhancing our reporting effectiveness and giving us great access to servicing non-traditional venues."

In November, Jamba reported a return to profit in the first nine months of the year.
