Renowned for Award-Winning Craft Cocktails and Bites, Quik Dog Joins All-Star Roster of Restaurants and Shops Coming to San Francisco’s Newest Waterfront Destination
Mission Rock Partners, a collaboration between the San Francisco Giants, Tishman Speyer and the Port of San Francisco, today announced an agreement with Bon Vivants Hospitality to bring Quik Dog, a fast casual concept offering burgers, hot dogs, salads + fries, a full bar, and sodas for both kids and adults, to Mission Rock.
The first permanent Quik Dog outpost will operate out of a 4,133-square-foot street level space at the base of The Canyon on the corner of Third Street and China Basin Park starting in late 2024. Founded by San Francisco native Josh Harris, Bon Vivants Hospitality also owns and operates Trick Dog, one of the most acclaimed cocktail bars in the Bay Area and world at-large. Trick Dog is a two-time winner for “World’s Best Cocktail Menu” at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards and multiple James Beard Foundation Award-nominee for Outstanding Bar Program.
Quik Dog, known for its juicy burgers, classic hot dogs, thrice-cooked fries, and delicious drinks, joins a growing lineup of locally-owned restaurants and shops coming to the new neighborhood as part of Phase One of the 28-acre mixed-use development. Mission Rock Partners previously announced that Arsicault Bakery, Blades Co. Barbershop, Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, LuxFit and Proper Food will open starting early next year. In total, this initial slate of retailers will occupy approximately 16,000 square feet at the base of Mission Rock’s first four buildings.
“We are thrilled to welcome Josh Harris and his wildly successful food and beverage concept to the Mission Rock family,” said San Francisco Giants Vice President of Real Estate Development Julian Pancoast. “We’re looking forward to Quik Dog instantly becoming a go-to spot for their exceptional offerings that will enhance the variety of retailers that we’ll have in the neighborhood.”
Tishman Speyer Managing Director Maggie Kadin added, “Quik Dog’s commitment further solidifies Mission Rock as a dynamic Bay area destination and a showcase for all the best things San Francisco has to offer. Quik Dog’s award-winning craft cocktails and menu will serve as an attractive year-round amenity for the neighborhood’s growing population of residents and workers.”
“I could not be more excited for Quik Dog’s first permanent location to be on this corner of Third Street and China Basin Park,” says Harris. “As a lifelong Giants fan, I am eager to integrate Quik Dog into the fabric of what makes going to a baseball game so special. We hope to be a place that is a part of cultivating the young Giants fans of tomorrow and becoming that place that generations of people come to crave.”
Mission Rock represents over 15 years of city planning and community input to transform a surface parking lot across from Oracle Park into an exciting new neighborhood featuring stylish rental homes, inspired parks and open spaces, community-serving retail, innovative workspaces and parking to serve ballpark patrons and the surrounding area. Tishman Speyer, the Giants and the Port of San Francisco are joined in Mission Rock Partners by Mitsui Fudosan America, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Japan’s largest real estate company, Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.
The Canyon, the first building to open at Mission Rock, welcomed its first residents in June. The 23-story tower includes 283 rental apartments, 102 of which are available at below market rates. Building F, a second residential tower that will add 254 apartments to the neighborhood, topped out in June.
In addition to the residential towers, construction has been completed on Mission Rock’s first office building, a 13-story tower that will serve as Visa’s Global and North American headquarters, and work is progressing on a second commercial building designed to accommodate life sciences research and development.
Mission Rock Partners are also constructing the China Basin Park, a five-acre public gathering place highlighted by a Great Lawn and a central plaza framing McCovey Cove, the Bay Bridge and the downtown skyline in single view. The majority of the first phase of Mission Rock’s development is expected to be completed by early 2024.
The retail leasing program continues to be spearheaded by the CBRE team led by Laura Barr, which represented Mission Rock Partners in the agreement. Bon Vivants Hospitality was represented by Alex Sagues of CBRE.
