Take a look at what’s happening in Richmond’s business community
Richmond is centrally located in the San Francisco Bay Area with easy access to freeways. Richmond is steeped in a manufacturing past and over the years food manufacturers like Hello Fresh and Blue Apron have moved here. Several bakeries have made it their home, including Cassandra’s Dream Cakes & More, Galaxy Desserts, Grace Baking Company, Rubicon Bakery and Zoe’s Cookies & Other Delights. Owners say the climate in Richmond is a little cooler than in other East Bay cities, which makes for a more efficient production operation.
