The Recreation and Wellness Center (RWC) at the University of Missouri–St. Louis is looking to fill the space of the Jamba Juice that was formerly located on the second floor of the center but closed in December.

Yvette Kell, director of campus recreation, said that the university made the decision to close the Jamba Juice based on low interest and infrequent use.

“We are currently working with facilities to reconfigure the space over the summer to be utilized as a more functional space,” said Kell.

Jamba Juice, which was operated by Sodexo, opened inside the RWC in August 2015 and celebrated its grand opening with a series of competitions, contests, and giveaways that fall. It offered smoothies and various snacks and beverages to patrons.
