The San Francisco Chocolate Factory has launched an Indiegogo Campaign on October 26th. The San Francisco Chocolate Factory, long a tradition in the South of Market area, has had to relocate due to the high commercial rents in San Francisco from the latest technology boom.

“We’ve kicked off this Indiegogo Campaign to re-launch our company at the new location and to stay in San Francisco,” according to company founder and CEO, Mike Litton. “We are surrounded by Uber, Zynga and Twitter. We are an equal opportunity chocolate provider, but these technology giants and others are causing commercial rents to soar. We are asking the local technology, business, foodie and chocolate community to help us out by buying some of our chocolate to help us stay in the City that we’ve known for so many years.”

The company’s rent at their previous location increased 300% so they had to relocate. They like their new office on Market but are reaching out to chocolate lovers everywhere to consider donating to their Indiegogo campaign to keep them in SF. Donors to the campaign will receive chocolate and other fun gifts in return. The chocolate is packaged in colorful tins with images of iconic San Francisco scenes and themes based upon pairing chocolate with wine, books, tea and coffee.

The business started in 2001 and has loyal customers and a following, but a move is hard on any company’s pocketbook. According to Litton, “Even our new location on Market near Van Ness is seeing changes in the few weeks we have been here. The Goodwill store across the street is slated to be torn down and turned into a 29 story building!”

With chocolate lover’s help everywhere, The San Francisco Chocolate Factory thinks their Indiegogo Campaign will help them stay in San Francisco where they belong as well as keep the wonderful employees that make up their amazing business. “All we are trying to do here is say: “Hey neighbors, we welcome you. How about buying some of your chocolate and gifts from us as we’ve been here in the community a long time,” said Litton.
