There is no secret that most restaurants are having a tough time making ends meet. We don’t go out to a restaurant without calling first to make sure they are still in business. You never know. We have shown up at a few restaurants only to find out that they closed a day or two earlier.
A company named Spacious, located in New York and San Francisco, is trying to help the restaurant industry. They created a new concept so restaurants can make money and get exposure to potential new clients.
Spacious is converting 25 popular restaurants in New York and San Francisco into weekday work spaces. That means restaurants who are closed for breakfast and lunch can now get paid for renting out their dining rooms. Restaurants make great work spaces for the community.
Bars and tables become desks and booths are conference rooms. For folks who would like to consider a restaurant as a workspace, it will cost $99 per month on an annual basis, or $129 by the month.
Will this work?
Spacious just received $9 million in venture capital and plans to sign up 100 more restaurants.
