Janine’s love for travel inspired her what is now the largest Juice bar in the world.  While in USA she noticed the juice and smoothie category was booming. And yet there was hardly a juice bar to be found in Australia. Janine returned to Australia and founded Boost which is now operating in 20 countries - more than any other juice bar in the world.

Janine and her husband Jeff expanded their retail empire and acquired Salsas Fresh Mex Grill and CIBO Espresso, under the holding company Retail Zoo. There are over 7000 staff between the four businesses. Janine’s success earned her a spot as a shark on Shark Tank Australia where spiring entrepreneur contestants pitch their businesses to a panel of "shark" investors.

An adventurer at heart, travelling the world as a young Aussie backpacker in the 80s, working from a camp counselor in San Francisco to a Stewardess of David Bowie’s yacht.
