Businesses in downtown San Jose continue to struggle

A lack of would-be customers such as tech and other corporate office employees who are still working at home is putting a strain on local businesses. Downtown San Jose restaurants in the normally popular San Pedro Square are suffering. Randy Musterer’s restaurant Sushi Confidential, like others along San Pedro Street, has struggled for months to get a solid lunch or happy hour crowd.

Most of these places have taken a huge hit throughout the pandemic but there was some hope that once things improved thousands of office employees would come back.  Hiker dies after falling from Pacifica cliff

With the delta variant forcing companies to scale back their return to office plans, these restaurants are left with fewer customers and more empty tables. It’s not only taking away the vibrancy of the area but it’s also affecting their bottom line. 

Remote work means empty office buildings. The absence of corporate catering has also negatively affected Musterer’s business.  But because of convenience and concerns over COVID-19, many tech companies have opted for hybrid work models or given the work-from-home option to employees full time.

Musterer was looking forward to seeing large companies like Cisco, Zoom or Adobe bring their employees back.  Coast Guard rescues man stranded on rock in Santa Cruz County
