San Francisco Baking Institute Cease and Desist
Last night the news started to trickle into my various inboxes. This morning unleashed a torrent of appeals to sign the petition of support to stay open . But few details about the actual issue.
So far I've found this message from Michel Suas
Any more facts out there?
My name is Juliette Lelchuk and I have been a teacher at SFBI for almost 4 years.
The overview of the situation is that all we're trying to do is renew a previously existing license, and yet we received an order to halt all operations while the application is pending. We've been actively trying to comply with the law since at least January '12, and we have documentation of that. We've paid the fees, etc. We are making all efforts to be in compliance with all laws governing small business, educational institutions, and so forth.
The support has been pouring in over the last 24 hours, and we are continuing to reach out to everyone possible, including forums, blogs, FB, local media affiliates, and our district assembly person for the CA government.
That's the scoop from here at SFBI, thanks for posting here on Chowhound. Every bit of publicity will help us!
