Arizmendi Association of Cooperatives is a worker cooperative made up of five bakeries (Cheese Board, Berkeley; Arizmendi Lakeshore, Oakland; Arizmendi 9th Avenue, San Francisco; Arizmendi San Pablo, Emeryville; Arizmendi 4th Street, San Rafael) and a development and support collective. Members share a common mission, ongoing accounting, legal, educational and other support services and support the development of new member cooperatives by the Association.
The best part of the Association (beyond the fact that they provide all of us with delicious, delicious pizza) is that they are extremely active in supporting the development of new cooperatives in the Bay Area. Their website provides extensive resources for anyone interested in starting or running a worker cooperative and they frequently attend events to share their experiences and answer any questions from those interested in becoming involved with worker cooperatives.
