Working from home is great until it isn’t; eventually, you crave new sights, smells, and socializing. The home office turns into the makeshift office at your local coffee shop. Everything from the friendly baristas to the variety of handcrafted drinks is great…until it isn’t. Learn why working from a coffee shop isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
Due to a lack of space, maxed-out bandwidth, or a concern over non-paying customers, many coffee shops are starting to restrict restroom access and remove tables and chairs. This phenomenon isn’t restricted to chains like Starbucks; some mom and pop shops are following the trend.
At Los Angeles coworking spaces like Cross Campus, there’s always plenty of space to work thanks to multiple floors of tables, chairs, couches, and standing desks are ready and available.
Why work somewhere where you have to pay for a drink just to have access to WiFi and restrooms?
When you work from a flexible office space like Cross Campus, you’ll have high-speed internet, plenty of restrooms, kitchens, showers, and a meditation room. And, arguably the best part, complimentary drinks like water, tea, and coffee. Refills encouraged.
As a freelancer, entrepreneur, business owner, or even a regular employee, it’s important to have a network of support - people you can bounce ideas off of, meet other people through, and lean on during hard times. At a coffee shop, the baristas may know your name and the face behind the computer screen in the corner may look recognizable, but there’s no real sense of kinship or familiarity.
That’s where coworking comes in. When you work among professionals from different industries and backgrounds in a modern workspace, you have creative collisions that lead to new business partnerships, new pitch ideas, and so much more. Although Cross Campus has multiple locations, our Old Pasadena office is a great example of this; far-removed from the tech and business communities in Silicon Beach and Downtown LA, the tight-knit Pasadena startup community has sprung up around Cross Campus Old Pasadena since it opened in 2015.
