It's been a busy year for Reem Assil, founder and owner of Reem's California, an Arab bakery at Fruitvale Station in Oakland. Reem, who joined the inaugural Good Jobs Accelerator in 2016, has watched her business grow, successfully opened her first brick and mortar location, and has doubled her team over the last year.
