Resources for Legacy Businesses

Being listed on the Legacy Business Registry means that businesses are officially recognized as long-standing community-serving cultural assets in San Francisco. The City and County of San Francisco intends the Registry to be a tool for providing educational and promotional assistance to Legacy Businesses to encourage their viability and success. To that end, the City has created the following documents.

 

Legacy Business Program Strategic Marketing Plan

The Legacy Business Program Strategic Marketing Plan was created for the Office of Small Business by contractor Design Media. San Francisco has an established reputation for uniqueness, diversity, and history. Our Legacy Businesses each have a story to tell, and those stories – assembled, cultivated, and shared – form a mosaic worthy of the art that decorates the city’s secret staircases. San Francisco retains its individualistic nature through scores of businesses and the unique stories they have to tell. The City is positioned perfectly to become a master storyteller for these worthy ventures.
