    It's on. The revitalization efforts of the Central Market area are under way.

    Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers announced it will open an 1,800-square-foot restaurant on the corner of Market and Sixth streets in San Francisco.

    Mayor Gavin Newsom said the popular burger joint would get a little help from the City. Pearl's will receive financing from from the $11.5 million Central Market Cultural District Loan Fund, whose purpose is to encourage businesses to open along the corridor.

    The financial help was a major motivation for the owner of Pearl's to open their fourth location on Market Street.

    "As a native San Franciscan, it makes me proud to see our city officials reinvesting in our neighborhoods and working together with local merchants to create positive change," co-owner Sylvia Yi said in a statement. " With this kind of effort and partnership, I envision the revitalization of Central Market and Sixth Street is well underway and Pearl’s is honored to be a small part of it.”

    Pearl's has another location in the City on Post Street. The restaurant will bring 22 to 33 temporary construction jobs to the City and 16 permanent jobs.
