Our Story Just so ya know
DAILY DRIVER IS A COMMUNITY MARKET PLACE, WOOD-FIRED ORGANIC BAGEL BAKERY, CREAMERY,& ROASTERY.
Joining forces with Hadley and David Kreitz, David Jablons and Tamara Hicks brought Daily Driver to life, harboring a desire to bring nourishing, quality versions of the products they longed for in San Francisco. David K. and Hadley perfected the design and recipes while David J. and Tamara scouted and planned, watching innovative change come to the neighboring Dogpatch community. Unlike the rapid gentrification of many SF neighborhoods, these changes brought new space for makers and artists.
The family-owned American Industrial Center (AIC) in SF has welcomed and supported makers for over 30 years. When David K.’s boiled, wood-fired bagels were first paired with Hadley’s cultured butter and the creamery’s organic cream cheese, they all knew that a wholesale/retail space was essential—and no setting could be more perfect than the AIC.
In a 7,200 square foot garment reconstruction workshop, they underwent a year and a half tenant improvement project, completely repurposing the space to include the first urban creamery in San Francisco, a full service kitchen, an exposed open floor plan bagel bakery, a coffee roastery and a 2700 square foot mezzanine for patrons.
