CNIC (Commander, Navy Installations Command) and Orion teamed up this November to open the very first Blendz Smoothies site in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba at the Naval Base's fitness center. With long lines forming days leading up to the grand opening, the excitement and anticipation among residents built up hype for a successful launch.
As a smoothie only foodservice brand, Blendz uses real fruit to ensure that all specialty and made-to-order smoothies come out "Fresh, Fast, and Smooth". With the opening of Blendz in Guantanamo Bay, Orion now supports three CNIC brands at this naval base. Spinz Hand Crafted Food and Bombers Fresh-Mex opened last spring across the street from Blendz.
Orion and CNIC's partnership are helping Navy sites develop profitable foodservice programs all around the world. Innovative brand concepts, like Blendz, open up opportunities for even more new business, The next Blendz is scheduled to open at the Naval Support Activity (NSA) Bahrain.
