After nine years of business at 442 Hyde Street, Hooker’s Sweet Treats will close its doors.

According to Eater SF, Owner David Williams said “the ongoing problems in the neighborhood” and "staffing issues" are just a few of the reasons behind the upcoming closure.

The business began with one salted caramel candy but expanded over the years to offer bread pudding, cookies, scones, savory brunch items, and more.

When we spoke to Williams four years ago, he said that opening the business in the Tenderloin was never the master plan.

“It was the cheapest neighborhood to set up shop,” he said, adding that there weren't a lot of decent cafes in the neighborhood.

On Facebook, Williams said people have shown interest in purchasing the business, and he encourages them to reach out to him for details. 

He also said the business will be open through October and possibly to the end of the year. You can follow them on Facebook for updates.
