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.
