Strategic Partnership Ideas and Case Studies
A strategic partnership idea for coffee shops and restaurants (and businesses looking for meeting spaces)
By Brenda Thomson
Do you own (or know) a coffee shop or restaurant that has quiet times when they’d love to attract more customers?
Do you own (or know) a coffee shop or restaurant that has either a separate room or a space that they could easily screen off?
With just a little bit of effort, free WiFi and a portable whiteboard, a quiet corner of a coffee shop or restaurant can easily be turned into a popular meeting spot for local business owners.
You can even have a promotion board recognising the local business owners who support the space, and perhaps a special coffee and cake offer for meeting room users.
Perhaps you could think about being a Coffee Shop Sponsor and providing the Whiteboard or a monthly prize draw for business owner users.
And everyone wins!
