Our founder grew up in the restaurant business. His family ran successful Bay Area sandwich shops for years. He loved the business and knew he wanted his own shop.

In 1999 our founder moved to Coeur d’ Alene Idaho and San Francisco Style Sourdough Eatery opened its first restaurant featuring the Premium Deli Café menu with the freshest ingredients and traditional flavors from San Francisco.

Realizing warm sourdough and full muscled meats stuck a chord with customers. He added fresh soups and gourmet salads. In 2003 San Francisco Style Sourdough Eatery started to franchise.
