Community Highlights: Meet David Rayl of Ecafé Cowork Center

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Rayl.

Hi David, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
After spending 20 years in the executive suites business, we decided to open our first co-working location in 2016 in Overland Park Kansas. We call it ecafé and it combines a state-of-the-art coworking center with a vibrant coffee house to create the ultimate workplace. Perfect for mobile workers and home-based professionals. We offer fully-equipped meeting rooms, high-speed internet, mailboxes, personal lockers, postal services, and a complete supply of office products.

We’re located at 10650 Roe Avenue in Overland Park, KS and we focus on saving you time and money by ensuring you get the right products and services at the right price—in a single, quick visit.

We can pack and ship [almost] anything to [almost] anywhere in the world, but shipping is only one way we can help to make your life easier. In addition to our pack and ship service, we are also Overland Park’s premier copy, print and document services center. We’re your one-stop-shop for dozens of business products and services that will allow you to do what you’re good at while we take care of the “other stuff” you need to succeed.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
We originally operated the coffee shop but Scooter’s was interested in running the coffee shop so we brought them in three years ago. The pandemic shut down a lot of our meeting room business but now we are back to full speed as people are anxious to meet in person again.

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Ecafé Cowork Center?
We are a full-service coworking center offering fully equipped meeting rooms, high-speed internet, mailboxes, personal lockers, postal services, and a complete supply of office products. Perfect for mobile workers and home based professionals. Whether you plan to work at ecafé all the time or just drop in from time to time, we have a plan for you. Monthly memberships give you unlimited access to the coworking center and include free conference and meeting room hours along with priority scheduling. If you just need to use the cowork center on an occasional basis, we offer day passes for as little at $10/day.

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
People are more interested in remote working and coworking can be a great solution if you need space to meet with customers and employees. If you tire of working from home, you can drop in when you need a change in scenery.
