A McDonald’s in downtown San Francisco, has shut down as the city contues decline as numerous issues plaguing businesses in the area.

The fast-food location’s ownership, Scott Rodrick of Rodrick Management Group, had a negative view when speaking of the issue.

 Fox Business reported Saturday:

Office building vacancies, the environmental atmosphere of downtown sidewalks and a tepid return by tourists and conventioneers all drove the decision.

The economics of running a franchised restaurant in San Francisco continue to be a challenge, particularly in a downtown that is impacted by high office building vacancy rates and visitor trends that have not recovered since the pandemic. My Front Street location, without the benefit of parking and a drive-through, amplified the challenge.

The location has been in business for 30 years, but employees have had to find work at other McDonald’s restaurants in the area.
