Bart Potenza founded Candle Cafe® on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in 1984. Bart has written and lectured on the virtues of healthy eating for decades, and he continues to excite his loyal following with his innovative concepts and philosophy in the organic vegan movement.
Joy Pierson cofounded Candle Cafe® & Candle 79® and has been a nutritional counselor since 1985. She first discovered Healthy Candle as a customer and soon joined Bart to promote healing through healthy, great-tasting, plant-based food. She is an author of the Candle Cafe and Candle 79 Cookbooks.
In 2003, with the success of the original Candle Cafe®, a second location was opened on the Upper East Side called Candle 79®. This location offers the same famed vegan, organic cuisine in a fine dining setting catering to the conscientious, sophisticated eater. www.candle79.com
Bart and Joy are proud to bring delicious, healthy vegan cuisine to Candle CafeTM
frozen vegan meals. In Food We Trust®.
