It was December 2011; a decades long career in the film industry was coming to an end and Jan was looking for a new endeavor. One day while delivering a batch of fig spread to a friend, Jan had a chance encounter with a food industry veteran. Word had gotten out about this film producer’s fig spread, and he wanted to know if it was as good as he had heard. Jan ran home, got what was left of the spread, and met him at a coffee shop so he could taste it. After tasting it, he said “This is better than anything on the market. Would you consider doing this for a living?” The rest is history. Today, Just Jan’s can be found in the Four Seasons San Francisco & Westlake, and at select gourmet retailers across the country.
