A loan of $5,000 helped keep Sour Flour running smoothly and thriving as a bread business.

Danny's story

I am a San Francisco native, and grew up in a world surrounded by technology. I went to a Spanish Immersion elementary school (Buena Vista), which continued into middle school (James Lick), studied Italian in high school (Lowell), and then went off to New York for college (New York University) to study economics and computer science.

After finishing school, I came back to San Francisco, and tried to find a job doing something useful. Because I had computer skills, along with prior work experience, I quickly found myself in the tech industry. I never quite knew what I wanted to do, but continued to find out that I did not want to continue what I was doing.

In 2009, I decided to quit my tech job, and start a bread baking company called Sour Flour. I have always had a love for food, and after exploring and tasting many aspects of the food industry, settled into a focus on bread. The first goal was to give away 1000 loaves of bread, which took 6 months, and I have been baking ever since.
