This month was full of inspiration! We sat down with some of the Bay Area’s leading black entrepreneurs, interviewed a couple business partners who are making a killing serving simple, wholesome and nutritious meals to their healthy customers, and also launched Cheetah’s Marketplace – essentially an online farmers’ market, where you have access to emerging local and craft food vendors.
Where to start? We think it’s only appropriate to begin with a recap of our Black History Month spotlights.
There’s a long history of black leadership in Oakland and throughout the Bay Area, and while history continues to be made, this month we gave some of our dearest customers the spotlight they deserve.
The passion, dedication, and dreams of these diligent restaurant owners is truly inspiring and we’ll continue to share their stories. The article below outlines the complex and captivating evolution of black-owned businesses in the Bay Area:

In other news, our mission to support healthy and clean eating persists. Earlier this month, we met up with the owners of LeanFeast in Dublin and San Jose. Our interview honed in on providing real, actionable advice for other restaurateurs looking to offer healthier menu choices.

We also dove into the Cheetah Marketplace, a new selection of inventory from local, artisanal and small-batch producers. We’re excited to highlight a few specialty items we’re thrilled to carry for our customers.
