The first shared workspace, or “co-working” space opened in 2005, and the industry has steadily gained steam ever since. Now, co-working locations are expected to double worldwide by 2024. For those wondering how hot this trend could get, read on to discover how Parlay Café has created a truly unique environment that fills the niche between the typical coffee shop and co-working space…

Multiple streams of income. Companies both large and small need a variety of different types of spaces in which to meet, hold conferences, work on collaborative projects, and more. Add in today’s booming work from home trend, and the need for co-working space multiplies. These varied needs offer the opportunity to establish several streams of revenue from one location.

Food and beverage sales. Especially popular among freelancers and remote workers, the co-working cafe concept provides multiple needs for the consumer. Along with comfortable work spaces, guests appreciate food, coffee, and other beverages available on-site. And of course, food and beverage sales provide yet another revenue stream for owners.

Memberships and day passes. Access to our Members Lounge is a great perk for individuals and companies. Both individuals (remote workers, digital nomads and the self-employed) and entire companies can purchase memberships.  Parlay Cafe has options for both monthly memberships as well as hourly and day passes, providing franchisees with added income opportunities.

Conference room rentals. Sometimes, a private space is required for a particular meeting or project. Hourly conference room rentals provide another stream of revenue for Parlay Cafe locations. Our conference rooms are ideal for job interviews, client meetings, and small team meetings.

Food & Beverage; Membership & Day Passes, Conference Room Rental – Parlay Café franchisees enjoy all three revenue streams within the same footprint as a traditional café!
