David & Susan Hunsaker

David & Susan Hunsaker opened the doors of 31st Union in June, 2012. Their vision was to create an urban yet warm environment which would become a community cornerstone. The name 31st Union pays homage to California as the 31st State and is a place for you to honor the unions in your life. Hospitality is their super power; finding great talent to serve their guest is another. They delight in providing exceptional customer service in every aspect of the business. Their most recent iteration takes all that is great from our kitchen to yours. In April 2017 they launched 31st Ready Made: Lunch Ready, Dinner Ready, Pantry Ready... it's Ready Made.
