Supermarkets and other grocery retailers are the main points of distribution for food and daily necessities for the residents of San Francisco and are essential to the vitality of the community. The City has a strong interest in ensuring the welfare of the residents of San Francisco through the maintenance of health and safety standards in grocery establishments. Experienced grocery workers with knowledge of proper sanitation procedures and health regulations and an understanding of the clientele and communities they serve are instrumental in furthering this interest. A transitional retention period upon change in ownership, control, or operation of grocery stores ensures stabilization of this vital workforce, which results in preservation of health and safety standards. Through this ordinance, the City seeks to sustain the stability of this vital workforce.
