Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company
The Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory (traditional Chinese: 金門餅食公司; simplified Chinese: 金门饼食公司; pinyin: jīnmén bǐngshí gōngsī; Jyutping: gam1mun4 beng2sik6 gung1si1) is a fortune cookie company with its main entrance off Ross Alley, near Jackson Street in the Chinatown neighborhood of San Francisco, California in the United States. In 2011, Wired voted the company as one of their top ten "geekiest" places in San Francisco.
The cookie company, located between Jackson and Washington Streets in Ross Alley, was opened in 1962. It is owned by Franklin Yee. They make traditional fortune cookies, as well as chocolate flavored fortune cookies, almond cookies, and other sweets. Visitors can observe workers using motorized circular griddles to create fortune cookies, which they sell for $5 a bag or flat cookies for $3 a bag (March 2015). The company also makes "fortuneless" cookies. They charge 50 cents for photographs of the workers and the factory interior.
