Open for Business

Safely Support Local Businesses Open For Business

Last Updated: December 10, 2020


To support Pleasanton businesses that are open during the Shelter in Place Order, the City has partnered with Bludot to create an interactive business listing with mapping features.


Our local businesses need your support now more than ever. As businesses may adjust their operations during the pandemic, it is strongly recommended that you call the business directly. If you are refraining from restaurant take-out during the Shelter in Place Order or would like to support a restaurant or business listed, please consider purchasing a gift card to support now and use later. 

Are you a Pleasanton business open for business, offering online ordering, curbside pick-up, or virtual services and don't see your business listed? You can add your business by following these steps:

1. Visit Pleasanton's OPEN FOR BUSINESS listing.

2. Click the +List My Business button in the upper right-hand corner.

3. Complete the following screen with your business information. Once you hit SUBMIT, your information will be reviewed to meet the criteria to be listed before being added (must be located in Pleasanton and an essential business or business that closed physical storefront and now providing online orders or virtual classes). 

Downtown Pop-Up Program

The City has created a NO FEE temporary administration process to allow downtown businesses the opportunity to expand outdoor dining and display areas into the right-of-way. Visit the Planning Department for detailed information. Downtown Pop-Up Guidelines | Application

Allowed businesses outside of the downtown district that want to use outdoor space are asked to complete a no-fee application available at the Planning Department.

California Guidance for Face Coverings

Effective June 8, a face covering must be worn when outside and when anyone else other than just members of their Social Bubble is within 30 feet (10 yards). Employees must wear a face covering when in the workplace except when in a private space or area not regularly used by others. They must wear a face covering when preparing food or other items for sale or distribution to people who are not members of their household or living unit. Businesses are also required to remind customers or visitors to wear face coverings while inside or waiting in line to enter their business. See Site Specific Protection Plan (Appendix A)

Pleasanton businesses are encouraged to post a No Mask, No Service sign to remind customers that face coverings are required at their establishment. Table top signage for restaurants is also available. Request a sign HERE or click on the image to download a PDF to print.

Signs for Essential Businesses Available!

The City has created Open for Business signs to assist in identifying businesses that are open during the Shelter in Place Order. This will allow residents to easily spot the green signs in windows throughout town, and instantly know which businesses are there to provide them with essential needs during this time.


Business Rebound Tool-kit

Rebound Business Toolkit - Pleasanton Downtown Association, in cooperation with the City of Pleasanton and Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, created a business toolkit to assist in developing plans for a safe and successful reopening of your business.

The Rebound Business Toolkit contains resources and action plans that you can use to prepare you for and guide you through the reopen process. The guidance is applicable to all Pleasanton businesses.
