在過去的 18 個月裡，一切都起了變化，疫情亦帶給我們不同的挑戰。我深明陳展明，他的商店和家人 — 和我們很多人一樣 — 經歷了很多：經濟危機，以及對我們亞裔社區的仇恨和仇外心理。

Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company – a symbol of resilience
By Mayor London Breed
59 years ago, the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie opened its doors in the heart of Chinatown, and since then, it has become a destination for visitors from all around the world as they look for those sweet treats filled with good fortune.
We know that the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company has handmade their cookies with love and compassion as visitors line up outside their iconic location; today, in addition to the traditional flavor, patrons also enjoy creative flavors like chocolate-dipped, chocolate or strawberry-glazed, and green tea with unique toppings.
Through a tireless work ethic and dedication to excellence, the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company has become central to Chinatown and a destination for San Francisco residents and visitors alike. The iconic handcrafted cookies, with timeless ingredients, and independent craftsmanship are also cornerstones of San Francisco.
We know that everything has changed over the past 18 months, and the pandemic has challenged us in so many ways. I know Kevin, his store and family – like so many of us – have been through so much: Economic challenges, and the hatred and xenophobia towards our AAPI community.
But, the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company and everyone who works there have remained resilient. They have come together to gather and distribute resources like PPEs for seniors and our most vulnerable communities; and they have advocated for others. They have remained strong in the community.
Despite all of the loss we have collectively felt this past year, places like this give us hope. Not only is this a legacy business, but this is also a family and community in the heart of Chinatown. The Golden Fortune Cookie Company is a symbol of resilience, and will forever be a part of our City’s story.
I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the Fortune Cookie Factory on this momentous celebration, and for always bringing people together.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have looked for ways of supporting small businesses with grants and loans through different resources, including my recent signed budget. I know it has been challenging, and as we are the road to recovery, we will continue to look for resources to help our merchants.
