DENVER — Denver-based Office Evolution —one of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S. — is taking its co-working concept to the Texas market, with plans for up to nine other locations in major metro markets.
On June 28th, local franchise owners, Bob and Vicki Fox, opened the first of two planned co-working centers for the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. The new 6,900-square-foot center, located in the desirable Southlake Town Square area at 180 State St., Suite 225, offers small businesses and entrepreneurs professional, on-demand office space with 24/7 access.
“We are excited to bring Office Evolution to the Southlake Town Square – an area ripe for shared office space with so many entrepreneurs and small businesses in the area,” said Bob Fox. “The upscale, contemporary vibe of the square aligns perfectly with Office Evolution’s culture of casual, yet professional workspace. We love Office Evolution for many reasons, not the least of which are the great facilities and amenities. But, how we really distinguish ourselves from the rest of the pack is our entrepreneurial culture focused on helping members succeed. We don’t just provide a nice workspace. We’re all about connecting, collaborating and networking with business owner members to help them overcome small business challenges to achieve their goals. Dallas/Ft. Worth has a robust ecosystem of startups and Fortune 1000 companies – all of whom can benefit from our affordable and flexible space and services.”
Office Evolution has nine locations planned and/or under construction in Texas including two in Dallas/Ft. Worth, one in Austin and six in the greater Houston areas. One of the many perks of being an Office Evolution member is 24/7 access to all facilities located throughout the U.S. Once fully developed, members will enjoy the use of the nine Texas locations, as well as the 125 centers throughout the U.S. Entrepreneur Magazine recently ranked Office Evolution #4 on its list of .
The market demand for co-working space, private furnished office space, virtual offices and business services is expected to continue its rapid growth trajectory as corporate America continues to outsource many jobs that can be performed more cost-effectively by contractors. The number of consultants, contractors, and so-called “solopreneurs” has soared 50 percent between 2011 and 2018, to an estimated 24 million, per an annual workforce report by MBO Partners. Moreover, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the number of freelancers, temps, independent contractors and solopreneurs will grow from 30 percent of the workforce today to 40 percent of the total workforce over the next five years.
