JAN’S HEALTH BAR is a Southern California-based healthy, fast food restaurant with locations in Huntington Beach and now Costa Mesa, CA. Committed to serving affordable fresh, high quality food prepared in a simple manner and guaranteed to satisfy any craving.

Online PR News – 04-September-2013 – Costa Mesa, CA – Over 40 years ago (1972), one of the first female California surfers Jan Gaffney, opened JAN’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. JAN’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, JAN’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 JAN’S in 2010 – embarking on a new legacy-making adventure.

During her youth, Poppy Holguin was an employee at JAN’S HEALTH BAR and she witnessed the value of a fresh food-filled menu and the positive influence JAN’S had on the community and business. Since stepping in as the owners, the Holguin’s mission is to carry on the rich tradition of nourishing the cravings of generations living in or passing through the California destination town. “The food at Jan’s inspires an active lifestyle. We keep things simple and satisfying without weighing you down”, says Poppy, “ 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 JAN’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 ingredients”. The philosophy is not revolutionary but is something JAN’S HEALTH BAR has stayed true to for over 40 years.

Today, JAN’S HEALTH BAR continues to operate on Main Street in Huntington Beach and recently opened its second location in Costa Mesa, CA. JAN’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.
