Booster Juice could be coming to the Canada Games Centre this summer.

The City of Whitehorse has reached a lease agreement with the juice and smoothie franchise. The draft lease was presented to Whitehorse City Council on Monday night. The agreement is for 10 years.

If approved, Booster Juice will be located across from the centre’s reception desk, near the children’s ice rink. The company wants to move in at the beginning of June to start preparing the space. It should begin serving customers in August.

But they won’t be able to buy wraps or sandwiches. Booster Juice has taken those off the menu for this location because Subway has exclusive rights to sell sandwiches, salads and wraps, the administration report says.

This requirement left Coun. Betty Irwin with some questions. She had not heard of Booster Juice before, she said. “What will they sell?” she asked.

“Juice,” responded Pat Ross, the city’s manager of planning.

“I can say that it’s quite good,” assured Coun. Mike Gladish, chair of the community services committee.

The lease is for just over $27,600 for each of the first five years. The rent goes up to $28,700 for each of the remaining five. There’s also an option to renew the lease for two additional five-year terms.

City council will vote on approving the lease next week.
