Janine Allis


Boost Juice Bars and Retail Zoo

Janine is an adventurer at heart. Travelling the world as a young backpacker in the 1980s, she took jobs ranging from a camp counsellor in the US to working on David Bowie's yacht in the south of France.

Aged 27, Janine returned home with a two-year-old son and a steely focus to find a career that would support them both. Soon after she worked for Village Roadshow in Melbourne and Singapore.   

After meeting and marrying the love of her life, Janine had two more children. While on maternity leave, Janine decided she wanted control of her own destiny and set about creating her own business.  

After a few failed attempts, Janine established Boost Juice following a trip to the US where she saw the interest in juices and smoothies, and noted a lack of healthy fast food options here in Australia.

Fifteen years later, Janine has more than 400 stores throughout Australia and in 12 countries around the world, employing more than 7000 people. 

Janine continues to grow Boost Juice under the Retail Zoo banner, along with its other operations Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill, Cibo Express and Hatch.

Janine’s leadership style is natural, warm and giving, yet extremely demanding. Her professionalism and attention to detail has created a high-performance culture in her business, yielding great results. 

Based in Melbourne, Janine is a working mother of four. Her life is hectic but she balances it with a five-day-a-week yoga regime. She is also “a very average surfer and tennis player” but loves both.
