In a city known for its vibrant spirit, a group of small businesses is poised to breathe new life into San Francisco's Financial District, according to the San Francisco Examiner. Among these pioneers is Devil’s Teeth Baking Company, a beloved bakery that has been a staple in the outer San Francisco community for over a decade. Despite the setbacks brought on by the pandemic, Devil’s Teeth and sixteen other businesses are gearing up to take part in Mayor London Breed’s “Vacant to Vibrant” program.
The initiative, a collaboration between the Office of Economic and Workforce Development and San Francisco New Deal, is designed to transform empty storefronts into bustling pop-ups for three months. This effort is fueled by grants of up to $8,000, which provide crucial financial and technical support to these enterprises. Mayor Breed's vision is clear: reshape the Financial District into a hub of creativity and entertainment
Devil’s Teeth Baking Company and its fellow trailblazers are proving that the heart of San Francisco beats stronger than ever. With "Vacant to Vibrant," they've not just revitalized storefronts, but ignited a sense of community and possibility that will continue to shape the city's future.
