Black-Owned Businesses in San Francisco



With the leadership and support of Mayor London N. Breed, we have an opportunity to do more to strengthen and support the long legacy of Black entrepreneurship in San Francisco. This directory aims to highlight our communities and give residents an easy way to find self-identified, Black-owned businesses they can support. We hope this directory will be a tool for San Franciscans to use their dollars to support these businesses. This directory is part of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development’s (OEWD) ongoing work to provide equitable economic opportunities for all communities and better understand and improve economic outcomes for Black-owned businesses in San Francisco.

If you would like to request an addition or correction, please complete this form. The list builds from and contributes to the efforts of other individuals and organizations that have compiled regional directories such as BAOBOB, Bay Area Black Market, and the SF Chronicle.

OEWD is committed to implementing strategies for equitable economic development that strengthen the diverse communities of our city. These are central goals of our mission and strategy.  We continue to dedicate resources for neighborhoods with higher concentrations of Black residents, namely the long recognized African American communities of Bayview Hunters Point, the Western Addition/Fillmore, as well as OMI and Visitacion Valley. Many of OEWD's programs also support Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs throughout the City. 

Given the disproportionate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black communities here and across the country, it is strikingly clear that this effort is more important than ever.

We are publishing this directory and map in alignment with the announcement of San Francisco’s first African American Small Business Revolving Loan Fund, supported by an initial investment of $3.2 million made possible by Give2SF donations. On February 22, 2022, Mayor Breed announced a 2.5M expansion to the fund. Philanthropic support from Aneel Bhusri, Chief Executive Officer of Workday, and the San Francisco Foundation has increased the number of small businesses assisted by the fund to an estimated 150 and brings the total funding for the African American Small Business Revolving Loan Fund to $6.3 million. The Fund provides access to capital and technical assistance for Black entrepreneurs and Black-owned small businesses impacted by COVID-19. The purpose of the Fund is to help stabilize San Francisco’s Black-owned small businesses by meeting urgent capital needs brought on by sudden revenue loss from COVID-19, and to put San Francisco on a path to a more equitable recovery and a diverse and thriving economic future.

The deadline to apply for the African American Small Business Revolving Loan Fund was August 4, 2020. Any future opportunities for Black-owned businesses will be posted here and via our Small Business Resources page.

Note: This list is provided as a resource for members of the public seeking to support Black-owned businesses. By including a business on this list, the City is not making any representation as to whether a business meets a particular definition of Black-owned and is also not endorsing the business or providing any statement or assurance as to the quality of the products or services offered by the business.


Below you’ll find Black-owned businesses offering goods and services from an accessible storefront location organized by neighborhood. You can view a list that includes more businesses including nonprofits, professional services, and construction, organized by industry.
