Founder and CEO of Parlay Café, Don Mastrangelo, was recently featured on ‘Franchise Hot Seat’. This web series gives rising franchisors the chance to seek the mentorship, advice, or financial support of established franchise community leaders.
The Franchise Hot Seat consists of a panel of experts who are elite executives and proven leaders of the franchise community known as “The Dream Team.” Don will have the opportunity to present Parlay Cafe’s pitch to four members of the panel.
Parlay Café franchises offer a unique environment that fills the niche between the local coffee shop and co-working space, providing a haven where remote workers can occasionally escape the home office environment . Anyone can purchase an hourly, daily, or monthly pass.
Don explains this moment as “Exciting and nerve-wracking, yet educational and a gratitude-filled experience.” He goes on to explain, “This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our unrecognized niche.”
Parlay Café represents an untapped market that includes:
- A More Comfortable Atmosphere than a Coffee Shop
- A Social Distanced Members Lounge
- Safe and Contactless Guest Check In
- Easily Accessible and Convenient Location
- An Affordable Alternative to a Co-Working Space
- A Fully Operating Café
Parlay Café is creating a community for local business owners, professionals, freelancers, and people who work remotely.
Don Mastrangelo’s episode was released on YouTube on November 23rd, 2020 at 9:00AM EST. You can view it here. One of the shows’ panelists even stated, “What looked like a good opportunity for you guys two years ago became an amazing opportunity recently, and is going to be a better opportunity than you thought it was going to be when you decided to do this.”
If you are interested in being an early investor in Parlay Cafe, you have less than two weeks left to participate in Parlay’s Wefunder campaign (closing on 12/02/20) for as little as $250.
