Ride The Ducks International, LLC announced today, September 7th, 2015, that we have closed our San Francisco operation. This difficult decision comes after 8 seasons in San Francisco and was based on our assessment of the long-term profitability of the business.
San Francisco is an iconic destination but an extremely challenging business environment. Despite consistent attendance and revenue growth during our time here – and an outstanding guest response – we concluded that the costs of continuing to operate in San Francisco exceeded the profit potential.
We are grateful to our employees and partners. We delayed this decision for years due to our trust and confidence in our amazing and committed team. We hoped and worked for a different outcome every way we knew how.
This decision does not affect the company’s Cable Car Charter operations, which will continue as they have since 1958.
