More than 400 restaurants in San Francisco shut their doors in 2019, showing a historic trend of more restaurants closing than opening in San Francisco.

Restauranteurs said many factors are to blame, like the high cost of operating in San Francisco, high crime rates, dirty streets and long wait times for permits.

Plus, new challenges in this digital age like the ease of being able to order food online.
