Charlene would hike up hill both ways through a snowstorm for a Jugo Juice smoothie. Why? Well, aside from the allure of its healthy deliciousness, Charlene is always willing to go the extra mile. She will do what it takes to help people achieve their goals and leave them with a smile. Inspiring people inspires her, which is why at an event, when a customer asked if she would add a granola bar to a smoothie to increase the protein, she embraced Jugo’s innovative spirit and went for it! The result? Success! Off walked a happy customer with a 1-of-a-kind smoothie creation and a smile from ear to ear.
Every office needs that one special person who has the innate, unique ability to assemble all the staff into a neat, organized and effective unit. This enviable skill – also known as the ability to “herd cats” – belongs to Ewa, Office Manager & Corporate Trainer. Direct and independent, she’s not afraid to flash one of her toned biceps, if all other herding tactics fail (yeah, she works out to RELAX).
When she’s not workin’ on her fitness or keeping the office in check, she can be found sipping on a Kale Berry Crush smoothie while spending time with her husband and son, organizing travel plans to continue exploring Canada and beyond!
If you were to ask Hiten, District Manager of Quebec, what would be impossible for him to give up, he’d tell you without hesitation: the gym. It’s his second home. If he’s not at work, 9 out of 10 times you will find him there working up a sweat with his brother (who just so happens to be his personal trainer!). If you didn’t know, a Big Blue Protein tastes the absolute best immediately following a hard shred at the gym.
Being so dedicated to a healthy lifestyle, it’s no surprise that Hiten is described as persistent and organized. Favouring hands‑on support, he loves helping franchisees understand and achieve their business objectives. And when the day (and workout) are done, Hiten is likely developing a meticulous plan to further expand his impressive Funko Pop! collection.
As ripe as the fruit in our fresh-pressed juice, Kendall boasts a solid 7.5 years of experience with Jugo, making him a seasoned veteran of the team. So, when he shares some of his favourite nuggets of wisdom, like “efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction,” “be confident but maintain humility,” and “don’t hold celebrities in higher regard than any other people,” we listen!
When he’s not proudly carrying the torch of leadership, Kendall can usually be found kicking back, watching sports with his kids or cheering on the Roughnecks – his favourite lacrosse team. If you are really lucky, you may even spot him celebrating a goal with his signature ‘Gangnam Style’ dance moves.
Lindsey was brought to Jugo Juice by the desire to work for a healthy active-living brand that aligned with her lifestyle…although the allure of free smoothies didn’t hurt. Her love of Jugo is admittedly second only to her love of “the good stuff” - cheese. Nearly considering Fromage a food group unto itself, our Marketing Manager has professed that it would be impossible for her to give it up. But hey, life is all about balance - Lindsey spends much of her free time on the ball field or the curling ice, so we say Gouda for her!
A real firecracker, Lindsey’s zest for healthy competition, organization, and her desire to ‘make the rules’ has earned her the nickname Monica (after the “Friends” character), and makes her a true asset to the Jugo team.
Proud recipient of the “Most Honest Golfer” award won at a local tournament, Director of Operations Ryan prides himself on honesty and reliability. Pair his easy-going and positive demeanour with a passion for Jugo’s premium products and you have a recipe that’s going to blend the competition away!
When night falls, Ryan, along with his trusty basset hound Ulfric, channel the crime-fighting energy of Knight Rider (his favourite childhood TV show), to thwart his “evil” family cat Rasputin’s attempts at world domination. His secret weapon? Ryan keeps a Watermelon Wiggle close by to help take on any challenge – whether it’s franchise or evil feline nemesis related.
