Throwback Thursday to the 90’s!

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Nineties 959

Do you remember the 90’s?

If you know what Seinfeld, VCR’s, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, flip phones, Tamagotchi’s or Beanie Babies are, then most likely you lived through the 90’s.

In 1991…

This is what the Apple logo looked like

The Motorola had a wicked antenna

Brad Pitt finally got his big break in one of that year’s biggest hits: Thelma & Louise

The release of Nirvana’s Nevermind signified the start of the Grunge era that would dominate the music scene up to the mid-90’s (We all know what the cover looks like)

The Internet is made available for unrestricted commercial use and the number of computers on the net reaches 1 million (today there are 3.17 billion people online)

1991internet

 

1991 is when The Rostie Group was founded to provide businesses and start-ups with the option of smaller, more manageable space. There were 2 locations, one near the Pearson airport as well as downtown Toronto.

Shared workspaces were called ‘hot desks’ instead of ‘coworking’ and boardrooms looked like this:

Believe it or not, The Rostie Group prices were higher in 1991 than they are today!

1991AD

This marketing poster was the first advertisement for The Rostie Group. We still have the same view, and the same phone number. Pretty sure that guy does not work here anymore though.

The Rostie Group office spaces now start at $350. The ‘Corporate Identity Plan’ is now a ‘Virtual Office’ for remote workers and plans are only $69!

Since it is Throwback Thursday, here is one more of The Rostie Group 90’s Reception, one from the 2000’s and finally from today!

There are still friendly fish tanks around the centre, but we have gotten rid of those amazing white leather couches and dark wood. Are the 90’s back in style yet?!

Free Rise & Shine Breakfast Seminar – July 8th – 8:00am

, , , ,

Rise&Shine

Come and join us over breakfast and learn about SLAP (Silver Lining Action Plan) for businesses with Founder & CEO Carissa Reiniger!

Wednesday, July 8th – 8:00 am
20 Bay St, Waterpark Place, 11th Floor

Toronto, ON
Pacific Meeting Room

If you are a business owner with 100K to 2M in revenue and feel like you never have enough time or money – you probably need a SLAP! A SLAP (Silver Lining Action Plan) helps you set revenue and profit goals AND create the most direct Action Plan to hit those goals.
This SLAPsession is not going to have any consulting speak or leave you with another impractical business plan that you won’t ever look at or use – instead it is a working session where we will move fast and guide you through our SLAPmethodology to help you build a one year growth plan for your business!

In our time together, we will work through:
• How to build a niche and grow faster
• How to evaluate expenses, profit margins and best pricing for your products or services
• How to figure out who your Ideal Client is
• How to go out and find more Ideal Client’s (without spending ANY money and very limited time)

Please respond to rsvp@rostiegroup.com to confirm your attendance.

Peak of the Week has now ended!

, , , , ,

This is our official wrap-up of the Peak of the Week lunch series! We are phasing out this program with the recent arrival of WaterPark Place’s new food vendors. For the last year, while the building was under renovation, The Rostie Group had started ‘Peak of the Week’ which is a meal delivery program for our clients. We picked a new restaurant every Wednesday (the peak of the week) and had lunch delivered for all of our clients from that restaurant.

We would like to thank our customers for their ongoing participation and support of Peak of the Week, which has made our program successful over the renovation period at WaterPark Place. Below are the most popular restaurants and dishes chosen by our customers. These are all local and Canadian favourites that we encourage you to try, especially if you’re interested in exploring more of Toronto’s food scene!
