Save Saba - From Alchemy Real Estate Gentrifying Our Community!!

We, the members of the community, support Saba Ethiopian Cuisine. We call on the property owners to protect the restaurant!

Saba Ethiopian Cuisine has been in business for close to 20 years. It is also second home to many and the owner, a second mother. The owner, Workie Wubushet, for over a decade has supported nonprofits, donated food and provided gathering space where everyone is welcomed.

Saba is not just a restaurant that is famous for its delicious food. To many, it is a place of love.

The current building owner sold the building where the restaurant has been located for more than 20 years. The sale price was $5.5 million! A new owner will demolish the building and now has evicted yet another immigrant-owned small business and adding yet further to the gentrification of our community.

We call on the current owner to negotiate an agreement that protects Saba Ethiopian Cuisine. The new owner could relocate the restaurant down the street, or temporarily relocate the restaurant while new construction is underway.

We stand united in protecting Saba Ethiopian Cuisine, along with all immigrant-owned small businesses that are facing eviction and gentrification in our city!
