In the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic, businesses are scrambling to provide a safe environment for customers and employees.
Parlay Café ensures that our members and employees provide a safe environment by implementing technology and safety measures. By showing you that Parlay Café has a plan in place to keep you safe during the pandemic, we hope you feel confident to enjoy time away from home to work or hangout at a Parlay Cafe.
PopID Facial Recognition and Temperature Scan
PopID uses facial recognition technology to allow customers to pay and enter Parlay Café by scanning their faces.
To enter the Parlay Café Members Lounge from our lobby and coffee bar, a member simply steps in front of the PopID device next to the entry door to the lounge. The tool scans the member’s face and temperature and searches for the member in our database.
If the member is recognized as authorized to use the lounge AND does not have a fever, the electric latch on the door is triggered, and the member can enter the lounge.
This partnership will allow members to step in front of the device and have their temperature scanned, allowing them to enter the lounge without putting others at risk.
Parlay Café employees are also scanned as they clock in and several times throughout the day as they migrate between the lobby and Members Lounge.
The database keeps a record of each scan.
As we begin to open franchised locations across the country, this solution is another step toward our commitment to ensuring that Parlay Café Members and Employees will enjoy a safe and secure environment.
Our founder and CEO, Don Mastrangelo, notes, “The safety and health of our members and employees are our number one priority.”

Members Only Working Lounge
Our Members Lounge provides a haven from the public lobby, away from our coffee grinders, blenders, and loud conversations.
The lounge is social-distance friendly, meaning you can get all of your work done without the fear of contracting any germs.
A Contactless Cafe
To ensure that Parlay Café is protecting its staff and members as much as possible, we also have implemented the following protocols:
- Contactless hand sanitization
- Contactless soap dispensers
- Contactless lid grabbers
- Glass divider between office desks
Our cleaning staff goes through a thorough cleaning protocol to ensure the working space is properly sanitized whenever someone leaves.
Parlay Café is the Safest Shared Workspace in Temecula
Protecting workers from potential infection by the coronavirus has been a rapidly evolving challenge for companies in industries from food processing to transportation and logistics to retail.
Businesses strive to stay on top of the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and communicate those recommendations to their front-line workers. The latter is providing the essential services that keep society functioning.
Both food suppliers and retailers also have struggled to keep up with demand while at the same time seeking to implement new working procedures at their facilities to protect their employees.
At Parlay Café, we were already ahead of this issue with our “Members-Only” co-working lounge.
If the shutdown has taught us anything, it’s that remote work has shown to increase productivity. With remote work emerging to keep employees safe, people in the workplace need a break from their home offices.
Parlay Café is a haven for remote workers. We have the technology and measures to keep you safe such as our partnership with PopID to provide automated access to our Members Lounge for our members and day pass holders.
Parlay Café employees are scanned as they clock in and several times throughout the day as they migrate between the lobby and Members Lounge. The database keeps a record of each scan. As we begin to open franchised locations across the country, this solution is another step toward our commitment to ensuring that Parlay Café customers, members, and employees will enjoy a safe and secure environment.
Throughout the pandemic, more and more companies are announcing a permanent transition from office-based to home-based workers, which will quickly result in millions of people searching for an occasional escape from the home office.
Our concept’s demand is evident, and franchise inquiries are streaming in from all across the country.
