Community Driven

At the San Francisco Chocolate Factory we are extremely proud of our city and committed to doing our part to be responsible members of our community. Since our founding 18 years ago we’ve been a pillar of the heart of the Mission District. If you live in San Francisco or if you’ve visited, perhaps you remember the iconic mural painted on our old headquarters. Despite the changing times, including a rent hike that forced us from our original headquarters, we’ve remained in the heart of the Mission; we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Part of what it takes to be a community driven company in San Francisco is to be socially responsible and to give back to our community. With that in mind, we’ve partnered with the California Autism Foundation to provide meaningful work for those impacted by autism. As a proud partner in the CAF Work Activities and Precision Industries Programs, we provide dozens of jobs and valuable experience to autistic individuals, including assembly and shipment of our tins of chocolate and warehouse work. These individuals perform great work for us and we are proud to call them our co-workers. We look forward to continuing this partnership for years to come!

In addition to our work with CAF, we’ve also partnered with the local band Train to create Save Me San Francisco Chocolate and committed donate a portion of the proceeds to Family House, a San Francisco based charity whose mission is to care for families of seriously ill children.

Our commitment to the community is also found in our employees, many of whom are actively involved in local youth sports, parishes and charities. It extends beyond what we do at The San Francisco Chocolate Factory, it’s who we are.
