New city tech workers dreaming of dining in workplace cafeterias may soon face a harsh reality going outside.
Two city legislators on Tuesday are expected to announce legislation banning on-site workplace cafeterias in an effort to promote and support local restaurants.
The measure, proposed by Supervisor Ahsha Safai and co-sponsored by Supervisor Aaron Peskin, would adjust zoning laws to ban workplace cafeterias moving forward, but would not be retroactive.
Peskin said the measure, was inspired by tech companies like Twitter and Airbnb, which are widely known to have access to dining in their own buildings, depriving nearby restaurants of the dollars usually spent by nearby workers. The measure has the support of Gwyneth Borden, executive director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association and other local merchants.
Under the legislation which is expected to be introduced Tuesday, you cant have an industrial kitchen in your office building, Peskin said.
Peskin said the legislation sought to avoid the Amazon effect that impacts retail and restaurants across the county, he said. This is forward thinking legislation.

There was a company lunchroom/cafeteria at a company at which I worked. It was pretty basic. They mostly sold drinks and pre-made sandwiches,salads, and desserts. Many people brought their lunches but ate in the lunchroom. Sometimes people talked about non-work topics or played cards, but people generally liked their work and “talked shop.” It was a place to meet people from other departments and where cross-fertilization of ideas occurred.
Absolutely incredible!!! Maybe they could ban workplace water coolers as well?
These progressive Frisco companies may be providing free or heavily subsidized lunch in the company cafe.
Cant blame the employer. A cheap way to keep expensive Bay Area employees working at lunch.
Workplace refrigerators and microwaves should definitely be banned.
And hospital cafeterias are definitely a menace. Legislation is needed now. /s
Dont give them any ideas.
A good friend has been ordered to do work at a San Francisco office. He was shocked at number of trash containers in the office to pre-sort all of the different types of recycling.
Banning those water coolers bottles would be more feel-good liberalism.
One more thing...
All of you should visit YouTube and watch Paul Joseph Watsons video titled San Francisco is a Sh*thole.
That horse left the barn long ago. In the late 1820s, Cornelius Vanderbilt started building steamships and operating ferry lines around the New York region. Shrewd and aggressive, he became a dominant force in the industry by engaging in fierce fare wars with his rivals. His competitors were heavily subsidized by the federal government and built floating palaces which only the wealthiest Americans could afford. Vanderbilt built a low-cost, unsubsidized carrier for the common people and became America's wealthiest man. He created the "People Express" of the day.
Just as long as they keep their hands off of my Oxygen Bar.
Next, Aasha Safai will dictate Lunch Security Administration checkpoints at all workplaces to confiscate food brought from home. Nothing says “lunch” like sailing through the San Francisco Sea of human waste, literal and figurative.
So they are promoting Glowbull Warming by increasing traffic?
Never underestimate the leftist mind. If bringing lunch became predominant, then the SF supervisors would bring forth a regulation that would prohibit home prepared food in the workplace in the guise that is was unsanitary or some such rationale.
Dan straight we want you out of the office. Here at the Kali DMV we need our sleep!
IBM Rochester, MN plant had the best cafeteria’s back in the early 90’s. Not sure if they are still there but they had everything. Better than a food court in a mall.
And why not? We were forced to buy healthcare insurance......
Point of order. A company cafeteria is a de-facto local restaurant... About as local as it gets for the workers.
