If you live in Toronto, work remotely, and love delicious food, you gotta check out Worksimply! They’re an amazing new startup that’s shaking things up in downtown Toronto by offering a completely new approach to coworking spaces. What’s so unique about them is that they’ve transformed several restaurants into vibrant Worksimply Hubs where you can work alongside other remote professionals in a dynamic and collaborative environment. It’s a great way to work, network, and enjoy delicious food all at the same time!
Their mission is to create a space where remote workers can come together and forge lasting relationships beyond the confines of work. They believe that their hubs help promote creativity, productivity, and a sense of community that is vital for remote workers who may feel isolated and disconnected from their colleagues and peers.
Worksimply Hubs take place 3 to 4 times a week with each one hosted at a different restaurant. This means you get to experience different spaces and enjoy delicious food while you work. Last month, I visited one of their coworking hubs on Peter Street, where I had the pleasure of meeting other members over a huge long table. We sat across from each other and enjoyed great conversations about go-to market strategies, growth, and startup life in general.
But Worksimply is more than just a hub to work. They also host regular events and workshops, providing opportunities for members to connect and learn new skills.
How Does Worksimply Coworking in Toronto Works
Are you in search of a comfortable workspace near your location? The Worksimply app can help you find the perfect spot at a Worksimply Hub that suits your preferences and schedule.
1. Find a coworking space near you
Once you download the app, you can easily search for upcoming Worksimply Hubs based on your location, date, and time, ensuring that you always have a convenient and productive workspace available when you need it.
2. Book your work spot
To reserve a spot to co-work, simply make a booking through the Worksimply app. All Worksimply spaces offer high-speed internet, with a minimum speed of 50 Mbps+, and outlets available for your convenience. Each booking guarantees you a comfortable and spacious work area and a minimum of four hours of uninterrupted productivity time.
3. Order coffee and get to work
Kickstart your day by ordering a fresh cup of coffee and immersing yourself in your work. Whether you’re a fellow entrepreneur, a creative freelancer, or a busy executive, Worksimply provides an ideal workspace for you to get things done. And while you’re at it, why not bond with other members over delicious meals? With Worksimply’s user-friendly app, you can easily browse the menu, place your order, and pay for your meal without having to leave your table or wait for a waiter.
Worksimply Coworking Membership
The membership fee is $19.99 per month with a 14-Day free trial. Unlike traditional coworking hubs that charge for space usage, at Worksimply, you only need to make a minimum spend of $10 at the restaurant, and the space is free for you to work.
In traditional coworking spaces, you could spend up to $300-$500 a month just for a desk, but at Worksimply, you can save half of that money while enjoying meeting new people over great food, and having a great place to work.

At Worksimply Hubs, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and co-work alongside a diverse group of remote individuals.
