Boost Juice Bars is an international chain of retail outlets that specialize in selling fruit juice. Boost Juice Bars was formed in 2000 with the first store located in Adelaide, South Australia.[1] The company has expanded internationally with stores in Asia, Europe, Russia and the Middle East through franchising.

In May 2006, Boost Juice Bars ceased operations in New Zealand after the franchiser (which operated all the New Zealand stores) was put into liquidation. The stores were sold to Tank Juice who are now operating them under the Tank brand.[3]

In 2007, the founders of Millies Cookies, Richard O’Sullivan and Mario Budwig, signed an agreement with Boost Juice Bars to launch the brand in the United Kingdom.[4] By the end of the year, the company had also expanded into Chile, Kuwait, Singapore, Indonesia and, most recently, Thailand.[5]

In 2008, Nestlé launched a range of fruit smoothies in association with Boost Juice Bars, to operate alongside the company's expansion into the United Kingdom.[6]

In 2011 Boost Juice got into a franchise agreement for India with entrepreneurs Rivoli Sinha and Dev Agarwal, the directors of Joost Food Ventures Pvt. Ltd.
