After coworking space Neoware Studio shut down its Oviedo Mall location earlier this month, the leaders behind the firm are planning to open a cryptocurrency-enabled coworking space and coffee shop this year.
Located in another Oviedo Mall storefront, CoffeeWorks aims to serve mall patrons and local businesses, while also demonstrating its patent-pending blockchain protocol.
The company hopes to open by September, but may operate a CoffeeWorks kiosk while renovations are ongoing.
The leaders already have experience within the coworking and technology industries, but are searching for a “coffee expert” to help the cafe side of the business.
“As most entrepreneurs do, with hard times comes pivotal changes,” said Caesar Medel, CEO of Neoware. “This transition to CoffeeWorks represents out refinements of what we learned about the coworking world post-pandemic.”
