“Co-working is a style of work that involves a shared workplace, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Typically, it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors (like us), or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation.” ~ Wikipedia

Golf Course Restaurants
Most golf course restaurants we work with struggle financially. It’s a tough business at the best of times. However most golf courses look for their food and beverage business from golfers. Few look at customers from a non-golf perspective. How about business people or entrepreneurs? CK Golf falls into the last category. We work remotely (no office), require lunch (daily) and most importantly need great WIFI and a comfortable environment. We’re not hard to please 🙂

Re-Think Your Food and Beverage Space 
If you are not full during lunch or in the mid-afternoon, consider creating a type of co-working space in your restaurant. Why not? You will need to re-think your strategy and install some plugs (electrical and USB) in your bar or even your booths (see picture to the right). Please make sure your FREE WIFI is easily accessible (no secret passwords) and is high-speed. As more people work from home or location independent you have a great opportunity to capture this type of customer with some out of the box thinking! What is your next move to grow your business?

We, Jeff and Tara Ciecko of CK Golf write two blogs, one is our 19th Hole Blog where we share personal experiences and the other an Industry Blog where we comment on general business and internet marketing best practices, sales strategies and give golf industry related opinions. We have owned CK Golf  for 10 years and provide business services to the golf and other industries. As of August 2016 our life and our business is ‘location independent’. Our 19th Hole Blog is about the places we visit and the things we do. If you have any questions or comments, or happen to be in the same location as us please reach out and contact us anytime.
