Partner Highlight – BiRite

Bi-Rite has been a San Francisco institution for nearly 80 years. Under the leadership of second-generation owner Sam Mogannam since 1998, we have embarked on a mission of Creating Community Through Food, striving every day to cultivate meaningful relationships with each part of our community, from our staff, to our guests, our producers and partners, and the environment.

Over the past 20+ years, the Bi-Rite Family of Businesses has grown to include two neighborhood Markets, a world-renowned Creamery and solar-powered Creamery Truck, a full-service catering operation, a small Sonoma farm, and the Bi-Rite Cafe at Civic Center Plaza, a new street cafe featuring our fresh, flavorful homemade meals and soft serve ice cream.

The Bi-Rite family also includes 18 Reasons, a nonprofit community cooking school that hosts classes and dinners at our 18th Street classroom and runs a Cooking Matters program which offers classes for free to low-income kids, teens, and adults throughout the Bay Area. Bi-Rite is proud to be a Certified B Corp and San Francisco Legacy Business. To learn more, visit
