Rize Up Bakery


Azikewee Anderson and team


Rize Up Bakery is a fledgling San Francisco-based Black-owned micro bakery focused on reinventing and rethinking traditional sourdough. Rize Up started as a quarantine project in spring 2020, born in response to the social unrest caused by the murder of George Floyd and the disparate impact of the pandemic on the Black community. Founder Azikewee Anderson does things differently, with bold flavors like the purple ube loaf and the “K-pop” gochujang loaf. They also have a clear commitment to community well-being with the “pay-it-forward” option that lets people take home a loaf and support another to be donated to the food bank.
