Pros and Cons of Storefront Locations in San Francisco

It’s hard to imagine an area with more business potential, but there are pros and cons of storefront locations in San Francisco. Each of these should be considered before deciding on a final location.


  • The population
    Obviously, the population is an advantage of a storefront location in San Francisco. It’s one of the most densely populated cities in the country and growth continuously happens – people love to live there, and they also need to shop there.

  • Access to resources

  • Limited space availability
    The population is a pro and con of storefront locations in San Francisco. It’s a small city at only 46.9 square miles, and space is at a premium. The city has a housing crisis, and this trickles over to other areas as well, including storefront locations.

  • Competition
    San Francisco is a popular city, and therefore, there is a lot of competition. Of course, this can also be seen as an advantage, as more choices are a good thing for buyers, but understand that you will be entering very competitive markets.

  • Earthquakes
