As a company with over 80 years of experience building successful San Francisco stores, you can trust Rossi Builders to create an exceptional commercial space for you.

Where Do Your Customers Spend Their Time (and Money)?

A successful social space like a bar, restaurant, or cafe is more than a place to get food or a latte. It’s a space with a convivial atmosphere for people who want to drop in to catch up with family over a favorite meal. Or it’s an edgy spot to sample exotic dishes and meet friends. Then again, it could be an elegant venue that wows with its sophistication, bringing patrons in to celebrate exceptional occasions. Whatever its ambience, your restaurant space needs to draw in your target audience and have an atmosphere that keeps them coming back again and again. Rossi Builders knows how to make the most of San Francisco’s commercial spaces to create a dynamic and atmospheric dining space.

This classy establishment on Bush Street embraces its 1916 Beaux Arts space—complete with period crown molding and vault-like wrought iron room dividers. Yet The Treasury pairs its antiquated elegance with a modern sound system to create a comfortable space that’s perfect for long conversations after work.

Equator’s downtown cafe takes full advantage of its space.

Located on the border of the Financial District and South of Market, Equator Coffee & Tea boasts a coffee bar made of wood and marbled sheathing, and a mural of leaves and wood that invites customers. These balance the expansive walls and pillars of bare concrete—creating an inviting, hip space that spills out onto the sidewalk.

Whether you’re creating San Francisco’s newest eatery, cafe, or night spot, you should trust Rossi Builders. Our diverse skill set will turn your design from detailed plans into the perfect dining area ready to serve its first customers—and do so while adhering to your designs, your schedule, and your budget.

Selling quality goods takes high-caliber customer service. Customer service that should be matched by the store those quality products are sold in. Rossi Builders has years of experience building out retail spaces with a professional fit and finish in styles from high luxury to deliberately casual. We have the skills needed to give boutiques a sophisticated air for their customer… or a rustic air, or a gritty urban street-side feel—whatever fits your retail business.

K&L Wine offers fine wines and the taste of the good life in a tasteful rustic setting.

The selection on display at K&L is impressive: bottles and cases of wine are offered in shelves and displays that come straight from a winery, and contrast against the raw look of concrete and roughly textured oriented strand board. From the aisles to the coolers, a refined yet no-nonsense rustic taste showcases the quality of the wine, while also showing that everyone can enjoy a taste of that quality.

Retail space for all wares must do more than provide a location to house goods for purchase. It must show the care and passion that went into making those goods and bringing them to the store for the customer to purchase. We bring that same passion to construction with high-quality materials matched by skillful craftsmanship. Trust Rossi Builders to build a space on time and within budget, using our exceptional communication to keep you informed at every step.
