A Dash of History: In 1926 a man named Julius Freed opened a fresh-orange-juice shop in downtown Los Angeles, initially ringing up sales of $20 a day. The real estate agent who helped locate his first store just happened to be an ex-chemist named Bill Hamlin. The two became good friends.

One day Hamlin, drawing on his chemistry background, presented Freed with an idea for a compound, using all natural ingredients, that would give his orange juice a creamy, frothy texture.

When the two began selling the new drink, the response was so tremendous that sales skyrocketed to $100 a day. An increasing number of customers would come by the store saying, "Give me an orange, Julius," and so the name was born.

By 1929 the chain had opened 100 stores across the United States. In 1987 International Dairy Queen bought the Orange Julius chain, and today you'll find more than 500 Orange Julius outlets nationwide serving the drink in a variety of natural flavors, including strawberry and pineapple.


Have a great day!
