13 SF businesses added to Legacy Business Program

Thirteen businesses were granted an extra layer of security on Monday afternoon, after they were approved as Legacy Businesses by The City’s Small Business Commission.

The Legacy Business Program was launched to preserve long-standing San Francisco businesses and nonprofits that have been in existence for at least 30 years and that prove they have made a significant impact on the history or culture of their neighborhood. The program seeks to provide more security in a rapidly changing city, with grants available for landlords who provide tenants with long-term leases.

The motion to approve all 13 businesses was passed 5-0 in Monday’s meeting, with two commissioners absent. The full list is as follows:

  1. Bay Area Video Coalition, Inc.
  2. Blue Bear School of Music
  3. Bo’s Flower Stand
  4. Café du Nord
  5. Caffe Trieste
  6. Cartoon Art Museum of California
  7. Castro Country Club
  8. Cole Hardware
  9. Galeria de la Raza
  10. Golden Bear Sportswear
  11. Sam’s Grill and Seafood Restaurant
  12. San Francisco Heritage
  13. The Stud Bar

The Stud Bar’s establishment as a Legacy Business is of particular importance, after the bar’s future was threatened earlier this year by a 300 percent rent increase. A co-op of 15 patrons purchased the bar, and Supervisor Jane Kim nominated the 50-year-old establishment for the program in early October.

The Legacy Business Program accepts 300 new members per year, under the condition that they agree to keeping their original name and purpose of their business.caffe triestelegacy businessSmall Business Commission
