Crystal Martin, the granddaughter of Willie Flintroy — who founded the original Flint’s in East Oakland in 1968 — has been trying to resurrect Flint’s for two years. After some failed lease negotiations, Martin signed Flint’s on to join a new CloudKitchens ghost kitchen facility in North Oakland earlier this year.
