The Health Bar's Owners: A Tale of Passion and Persistence
The Health Bar is a restaurant owned by a couple who share a deep passion for healthy eating. Fen Ireus and Amanda LaPage, both with varied backgrounds, opened the restaurant to make nutritious and affordable meals more accessible. Fen, a former Personal Trainer, started the restaurant after struggling to find healthy eating options for his clients. Amanda, a Social Worker, invested in her own health after her sister was diagnosed with cancer. By embracing a healthy lifestyle that included whole foods and regular exercise, she lost 70lbs and wanted to inspire others to do the same.
Since its establishment in Clifton Park, NY in 2017, The Health Bar had been thriving. However, the pandemic's arrival in New York took its toll on their sales. The couple decided to relocate to Rockledge, FL, despite the risks involved, and bring their business & family with them.
After opening in Rockledge, Scarlett Hightower, a Georgia native who moved to Merritt Island with her husband, became a regular customer. Scarlett, who had always dreamt of opening her healthy cafe, approached Fen & Amanda about partnering. They were thrilled to help Scarlett turn her dream into a reality and expand their business.
Now, they are not only business partners but also a family - The Health Bar Family.
