Office Evolution Continues Rapid National Expansion in Overland Park with First of Three Kansas City Locations
One of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S.(1) targets dynamic Kansas City market prime for co-working space
February 16, 2018 // Franchising.com // Overland Park, KS - Office Evolution, a rapidly-growing B2B franchise offering co-working space, private office space, virtual offices and business services, has teamed up with Kansas City business executive and co-owners, Ryan and Erin Seager, to open a new business center in Overland Park.
The new 11,000 square foot center, located in the desirable College Boulevard business district at 8101 College Blvd., Suite 100, offers small businesses and entrepreneurs professional, on-demand office space with 24/7 access. It is conveniently located near highways 69 and 435, as well as numerous hotels, shopping and restaurants. The center includes 40 private furnished offices, four conference rooms, a community kitchen and a co-working lounge. Members can choose from several packages that also include business mailing and telephone answering services and administrative support. Best of all, the office building provides free parking - without the congestion of downtown traffic!
An open house to tour the facility is slated for Tuesday, February 20, 2018 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Overland Park Chamber of Commerce will be on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception at 4:30 p.m. Register to attend the event at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/office-evolution-grand-opening-tickets-42438093480?aff=eac2.
Ryan Seager, who has been granted franchise rights to develop two additional centers in southern Kansas City, is a Kansas (Olathe) native and successful 20+ year sales executive in the healthcare field. He is currently Regional Vice President of Sales for PatientSafe Solutions and has also held several leadership positions with McKesson Corporation, Aesynt and Omnicell. Ryan and Erin, a pre-school teacher, have three sons and currently host a foreign exchange student.
“We are excited to become franchise owners of Office Evolution - which is quickly becoming a frontrunner in the shared office space industry,” said Ryan and Erin Seager. “There is a new paradigm for flexible office solutions and Office Evolution has it figured out,” said Ryan Seager. “The community-minded approach truly helps business owners connect with each other - and their clients - in a comfortable, yet professional, environment. Kansas City has a vibrant, entrepreneurial small business community, as well as a large corporate presence, all of whom can benefit from our affordable and flexible space and services. Moreover, one of the perks of being an Office Evolution member is our members can use any of Office Evolution’s 24/7 facilities located throughout the U.S. - which will eventually include three locations in the Kansas City area.”
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.
“Office Evolution members come from all different professions including lawyers, accountants, therapists - 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 a dedicated office for a day, week, month, year or more,” said Seager. “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.”
