The serious business woman on Shark Tank, the woman covered in mud on Survivor, a guest on popular tv shows, hosting a podcast, writing a book – these are all the versions that make Janine Allis.

Janine grew up in the outer suburbs of Victoria with a passion to travel the world. Her adventures took her from camp counselor in San Francisco to nanny in France and a stewardess on David Bowie’s yacht. Returning to Australia, she met and married ‘the one’ and founded Boost Juice in 2000.

Boost Juice bars is one of the largest juice bars in the world. With over 500 stores in 14 countries. Janine's vision was to “do retailing differently”, delivering a unique customer experience based on the “love life” philosophy and along the way getting more fruit and vegetables in people’s diet, which she are achieving, with over 2 million smoothies or juices sold every month.

Janine has been honoured with numerous retail, franchise and business awards including Telstra Business Women of the Year, Amex Retailer of the Year, Awarded Exporter of the Year plus BRW named Janine as one of fifteen people to have helped change the way Australia does business over the last 35 years.

Over the years Boost Juice expanded the Australian business incorporating other brands under the retail entity Retail Zoo this includes: Salsas Fresh Mex Grill, CIBO Espresso, the Italian espresso bar franchise that has wowed Adelaide for 17 years, the very cool Betty’s Burgers & CONCRETE CO. Retail Zoo has over 600 stores and almost 7000 people working across the four businesses with Janine Allis as Director.

Mother of four, best selling author of “The Accidental Entrepreneur”, a Shark on Channel TEN’s Shark Tank, a champion contestant on Australian Survivor Season 4 and co-host of the 5 star rated podcast “Superwomen we ain’t”.

With a life this hectic, Janine understands firsthand the demands the world can put on an individual! She is an advocate for a healthy lifestyle – maintains a daily yoga practice, calls herself a very average surfer, horse rider and tennis player… but loves doing all of it…
