Large hospitality establishments, such as large hotels, large restaurants, and food service facilities in stadiums and arenas, are a major employment base for San Francisco, supporting close to 30,000 jobs, generating over $10 billion in economic activity annually, and providing close to $1 billion in tax and fee revenue to the City. These establishments are also a major draw for visitors to San Francisco. An experienced and professional hospitality workforce benefits tourists and residents alike by ensuring that patrons of San Francisco's hospitality establishments have a positive and safe customer experience and promoting San Francisco as a world-class destination. These establishments also provide good, stable employment for persons who are disproportionately low-income. Changes in ownership or management of large hospitality establishments can result in displacement of this workforce. A transitional retention period upon change in ownership, control, or operation of large hospitality establishments promotes stabilization of this vital workforce and helps ensure that visitors and residents of San Francisco continue to benefit from an experienced and professional hospitality industry workforce.
