About Us

Hello and thank you for visiting our site! We want to tell you a little bit about us...

The Handy Deli has been serving the people of San Francisco for about 50 years. It has been owned by just four people, including our current owner, Jerry.

Jerry and his family came from Bethlehem, Palestine with one dream... to make it in America. They settled on San Francisco, and Jerry began to work and gain experience in the food industry. In March, 2007, Jerry finally achieved his American Dream; he bought the Handy Deli.

Since then, Jerry and his family and friends have worked hard to make the Handy Deli a world-class destination. Refusing to see his Deli as "just another deli", he is rightfully proud of the history of the Handy Deli, and what it means to the people in the neighborhood.

Jerry has extensive experience with wines and spirits, and it shows. He stocks only the best alcohol, both domestic and imported.

We hope you enjoyed our site, and it would be our pleasure to serve you in the future!
