Where Boca moms go to do business

It’s no secret that MOMpreneurs are everywhere in Boca Raton. Once you become a parent, especially a mother, you begin to experience this internal struggle about whether or not to go back to work full-time. As a result, many have chosen the part-time employment route or the direct sales path, or they decide to start their own businesses.

I personally fall into the latter category and have made it my mission to scope out where Boca “mom bosses” are meeting to close deals…in and out of high heels.

Mom + Entrepreneur = MOMpreneur

The business mavens and mommas belonging to Boca/Delray Femfessionalsmeet at restaurants or coffee shops all over town. But, their go-to place for board meetings and the like is TrendTea at the Wyndham Boca Raton Hotel(1950 Glades Rd., 561/368-5200). It’s even owned and operated by a local mom.

Boca/Delray Femfessionals Chapter President Pattie Runyon Goldenberg says, “It makes total sense to support fellow women business owners as well as places that give our local entrepreneurs business!” That’s right, one Femfessionals member headed up the design and installation for all of the new window treatments in the hotel’s recent lobby renovation.

Women at Work

Boca women in business make it their mission to support local…especially when it comes to their coffee shops. The Seed in Boca Raton (199 West Palmetto Park Rd., Suite E, 561/430-5640) is a frequent “meet over coffee” destination for women at work to talk shop. Why? It has a handy east Boca location and was founded by two local moms. It also features locally roasted specialty coffee.

Another tasty meeting destination? Cosa Duci Homemade Italian Bakery (141 NW 20th St. B-21, 561/393-1201). You can add a full Italian lunch ($12.95, changes daily) to your agenda if Cosa Duci’s tasty coffee and artisan cookies don’t quite satisfy your hunger for business. There’s also a separate room that can seat ten people comfortably if you have a need for a group discussion.

With all of these options, who needs an office? I’m off to my next mommy meeting!
