HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. - March 28, 2017 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Office Evolution, a rapidly-growing B2B franchise offering co-working spaces, virtual office services and fully furnished offices and suites, has partnered with international businessman and entrepreneur, Leonard Chitekwe-Mwale, to open a new business center in Hoffman Estates, IL. Leonard’s new 23,000 square foot business center offers small businesses and entrepreneurs professional, on-demand office space - from co-working space and executive suites to conference room rentals, business mailing and telephone answering services and administrative support.
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” will have 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. And those folks need a professional place to work, have meetings and get help with administrative tasks that get in the way of building their businesses.
“Our mission is to help these entrepreneurs grow their businesses with flexible, on-demand office space without adding significant overhead expense,” said Mark Hemmeter, Founder and CEO of Office Evolution. “We focus on those small businesses with one to five employees working out of their homes or the local coffee shop. What sets us apart from the rest is that we are very flexible in meeting the needs of our members at all stages of their business evolution.”
“Office Evolution members come from all different professions including lawyers, chiropractors, accountants, therapists, IT consultants - really anyone needing a place to hang their hat in a professional working environment - whether they need a place to pop in and check email, a conference room for meetings, or an office for a day, week, month or permanently,” said Leonard Chitekwe-Mwale. “And, the great part is that we’re providing Class A office facilities near where our members live and conduct business. Our contemporary center offers our members everything they need to successfully grow their businesses. Maybe today they only need a business address and mail services, but as they grow, our business center is there to provide office space, a personalized receptionist and a host of other services.”
The new business center, offering more than 80 offices, co-working spaces and several conference rooms, is located at 2300 N. Barrington Rd, Suite 400, Hoffman Estates, IL. For more information about becoming a member, please call 847.884.9900.
