Why A Fintech Startup Reopened A Beloved San Francisco Restaurant
PSFK sits down with the co-founder of Brex, a corporate credit card company that renovated South Park Cafe in San Francisco, about bringing its mission to help startups to life with a business x food hybrid space
In Brief:Brex, a credit card company aimed at startups, recently bought and reopened the long-closed South Park Cafe in its native San Francisco—and topped the public restaurant with an exclusive business lounge for Brex members only. The move came out of left field, but co-founder and co-CEO Henrique Dubugras says that opening the restaurant made sense after realizing how important it was to community members. PSFK chatted with Dubugras about the unusual opening and how South Park Cafe gives back to both cardholders and locals.
