Online PR News – 04-September-2013 – Costa Mesa, CA – Over 40 years ago (1972), one of the first female California surfers Jan Gaffney, opened JANâ€™S HEALTH BAR in Downtown Huntington Beach, CA. Her passion for a healthy, active lifestyle inspired the original menu of mouth-watering sandwiches, smoothies, and fresh juices. JANâ€™S famous hefty size tuna & avocado sandwich and banana date shake, fueled the souls of local surfers, visitors and families looking for delicious, hearty and healthy fast food options.
Over the years, JANâ€™S HEALTH BAR became an institution in Huntington Beach and the impact on local community and culture inspired new owners and Huntington Beach residents Poppy and Andy Holguin to purchase JANâ€™S in 2010 â€“ embarking on a new legacy-making adventure.
During her youth, Poppy Holguin was an employee at JANâ€™S HEALTH BAR and she witnessed the value of a fresh food-filled menu and the positive influence JANâ€™S had on the community and business. Since stepping in as the owners, the Holguinâ€™s mission is to carry on the rich tradition of nourishing the cravings of generations living in or passing through the California destination town. â€śThe food at Janâ€™s inspires an active lifestyle. We keep things simple and satisfying without weighing you downâ€ť, says Poppy, â€ś we always use fresh, locally sourced (when available) ingredients and make sure that every item on our menu contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Our philosophy for a healthy lifestyle at JANâ€™s and even at home with our own kids has always been moderation not deprivation. If you want to have a scoop of ice cream in your smoothie, side of chips with your sandwich, or even a cookie we say indulge, but the one thing we can guarantee is that the items we have on our menu are in their purest form with natural ingredientsâ€ť. The philosophy is not revolutionary but is something JANâ€™S HEALTH BAR has stayed true to for over 40 years.
Today, JANâ€™S HEALTH BAR continues to operate on Main Street in Huntington Beach and recently opened its second location in Costa Mesa, CA. JANâ€™s continues to serve community locals and visitors with an array of nutritious, healthy food options, made fresh daily without the inconvenience of a sit down meal.
