WEST PALM BEACH, FL, U.S. – Parlay Café, a shared workspace concept that fills the niche between the local coffee shop and co-working space, has teamed up with Accurate Franchising, Inc., an affiliate of the United Franchise Group (UFG), the global leaders for entrepreneurs, to grow the Parlay Café brand worldwide. Parlay Café provides an upscale environment where remote workers can Work, Meet, or Relax, and is projected to add 1000 units internationally over the next 10 years.
Based in Temecula, CA, the concept launched in 2019 and offers a welcoming space for professionals. A member lounge, private conference rooms and phone booths are available to members seven days a week, during operating hours. Each space is equipped with a full-service espresso bar, which is also open to the public. Membership at Parlay Café is flexible and is offered in three tiers: hourly, daily, or monthly.
“Accurate Franchising and United Franchise Group bring established experience in the franchise space around the world. Their incredibly extensive marketing, sales, and support network and resources are what attracted us to this partnership,” said Don Mastrangelo, CEO and Founder of Parlay Café. “After researching various partners and strategies, it was clear that aligning with Accurate Franchising was the obvious choice to grow our unique brand.”
The concept is unlike any other quick service business model, with three diverse revenue streams inside the same footprint as a traditional café. The average square footage of a Parlay Café is 2,500 sq. ft.
The brand is currently seeking single and multi-unit franchisees to expand the brand both domestically and internationally. Franchisees will receive one week of intensive training at Parlay Café’s flagship location in Temecula, followed by a second week of hands-on training at their franchised location. Franchisees should be business-savvy individuals with a strong work ethic. The brand’s initial franchise fee is $35,000 and the minimum estimated start-up cost is $187,950.
“We are extremely excited about this opportunity with Parlay Café as we already understand this space very well having developed our own coworking brand over the past several years,” said Tipton Shonkwiler, President of Accurate Franchising, Inc.
