The Works Gilbert vs Coffee Shop
Let’s consider The Works Gilbert vs Coffee Shops. Working from a coffee shop isn’t a new concept. We’ve all done it or witnessed it. We’ve seen the salesperson who takes over the table for 4 so they can set up their laptop, iPad, headphones, and backpack. Then they’re making sales calls on their mobile phone……and everyone in the place can hear every single word they say. Yes, some squatters wear business attire. But is it the best working environment for you?
The Coffee Shop:
- Charges for coffee. That’s how they make money, right? No surprise here.
- Is in business to sell coffee, sandwiches, and sweets
- Is unlikely to have a quiet area for private meetings and phone calls. Quite the opposite. You can expect to be working right in the middle of some hustle and bustle.
- May not have a solid internet connection
- Unlikely to give you access to their laser printer. I mean, you could always ask the barista to print a few copies of that contract you need printed, right?
- Will be yelling out customer names where their drinks are ready
- Will be running the blender mixing up those coffee drinks and smoothies. And that will happen when you’re 3 seconds into leaving a voicemail for that account you’re trying to land.
- May or may not have convenient parking.
The Works – Gilbert:
- Doesn’t charge you for coffee. And our coffee is pretty darn good
- Is in business to serve small business and those looking to get work done with minimal distractions

- We don’t operate loud/distracting equipment
