Here we are… doing the HAPPY DANCE! What's up with the address in the headline? That is our new address for Mozzeria!! Whoo Hoo!! Yep, after a long search for home base, and seeing many different properties, we couldn't believe our luck in finding this location.
I had mentioned that we made the offer on a previous property and we were so GLAD that that deal fell apart because that led us to 3228 16th Street!
3228 16th Street is located in Mission Dolores! Mission District is one of my top choices and, as I mentioned in a previous post, Mission District is known for diversity and offers a wide variety of cuisines at reasonable prices. What's even more interesting is that no Bay Area or San Francisco neighborhood has more Zagat-rated eateries than Mission District. It is definitely a foodie zone with some of the best dining experiences.
What lured us to that specific address? Other than the fact that it is located in Mission District, the restaurant space didn't need a major renovation. It does have few areas that are not currently up to codes like the ADA bathroom and ADA ramp. One of the key factors is the landlord. Our seller/landlord, Max Wang who runs Crazy Sushi next door, is really a nice guy and having a relationship with the landlord is important. Unlike the other property where I would have had to deal through the landlord’s property manager and waiting for responses, a complicated communication channel... I didn't want that. We are so relieved that Max isn't like the other guy.
We couldn't believe how fast the process took, and it took us about 2 weeks from making the first offer to closing the deal. We were even able to squeeze in a meeting with Tenants in Common (TIC), and I'm telling you that we are so blessed with having wonderful tenants!
Now that we have found a home for Mozzeria, we are gonna be super busy with getting the renovations started. Sign Up at Mozzeria.com to receive the latest on our progress... all the way to our OPENING DAY! Thank you for your amazing support!
