The Works Gilbert vs Coffee Shop

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. 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 to be printed, right?
    • Will have baristas yelling out customer names when their drinks are ready
    • Will be running the blender and 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 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 local businesses and those looking to get work done with minimal distractions
    • Has quiet areas. Our phone booths are comfortable and private for those Zoom calls and web meetings. Our Phone booths don’t need to be reserved. They’re first come first serve and are almost always available
    • Has a fast and reliable Fiber Optic internet connection.
    • Has a laser printer available to our members
    • We don’t operate loud/distracting equipment
    • Has convenient parking on the East and West sides of our building
    • You’ll be surprised to learn how much you can get done in a few hours at The Works – Gilbert as opposed to a few hours at the coffee shop

Find out for yourself, book a day, an hour, or a conference room and see what happens over here at The Works. You may be surprised. You also get coffee, on us.

You can run, but you can’t hide
You can run, but you can't hide - Summer 2022 Edition

You can run, but you can’t hide Summer 2022 Edition School is out for the summer. “How awesome!” Said no parent working from home in June, July, or August, ever. You’re no longer commuting to that office park in Phoenix or Tempe.  Sometimes you now work in your gym outfit or pajamas. You’ve been able to deal with a few minor distractions…….like the dog for some reason needs to go out 8 times a day (how did it survive when the house was empty for 9 hours a day pre-COVID?). Your Amazon deliveries always ring the doorbell when you’re in the middle of a Zoom presentation, setting off the dark barking, again.  But still, you persevere. These are minor distractions. […]
