Pop-up to Permanent Program
Upward bound: The City of Hayward has launched a unified effort to elevate the way people think and feel about Hayward. There are amazing things going on everywhere you look and we want to make sure everyone knows just what they are.
Popuphood is proud to partner with the City of Hayward's Economic Development!
It’s time to take another look at a city many already think they know and understand.
Once you do, you’ll find a much deeper and more vibrant perspective. Among the benefits: Unmatched affordability, central location, a rapidly expanding business base, livability,
approachability and amenities.
Popuphood has partnered with the City of Hayward to implement our “Pop-up to Permanent” program in their historic downtown.
The Pop-up to Permanent program supports entrepreneurs of new and established businesses looking for a low-risk way to test out new locations by matching them with underutilized spaces for reduced rent and short term leases.
As a result, the surrounding neighborhood economy experiences a growth in foot traffic in areas that were once struggling to attract new businesses and customers. This proven concept has helped to revitalize neighborhoods in cities throughout the Bay Area like San Francisco and Oakland.
