First of Three Planned Office Evolution Business Centers in Phoenix Opens in the East Valley
One of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S.(1) targets growing East Valley market prime for co-working space with plans for up to three locations in greater Phoenix
May 14, 2018 // Franchising.com // Phoenix, AZ - Office Evolution, a rapidly-growing B2B franchise offering co-working space, private office space, virtual offices and business services, has teamed up with local entrepreneur and business leader, Kyle Timmons, to open a new business center in Phoenix, the first of three locations to be developed by Timmons in the East Valley.
The new 6,000 square foot center, located in the vibrant East Valley Ahwatukee area at 4435 E. Chandler Blvd., Suite 200, offers small businesses and entrepreneurs professional, on-demand office space with 24/7 access. 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!
The bright, airy, second floor center, in the heart of Ahwatukee, is conveniently located within easy access to both I-10 and the Loop 202 San Tan freeway extension. The facility is near numerous hotels, shopping and restaurants. The center includes 24 offices (14 exterior, 10 interior), three micro-offices, two dedicated desks, a drop-in co-working area for up to 22 people, two conference rooms accommodating from four to 10 people, as well as a kitchen and mail room.
A grand opening to tour the facility was held on May 10, 2018. The Ahwatukee and Chandler Chambers of Commerce were on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony. To view images, please click here or copy and paste: https://www.dropbox.com/home/4435%20PR%20Pics.
Timmons has been granted franchise rights to develop two additional centers in the East Valley bounded by southern Phoenix, southern Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert. Timmons is an entrepreneur having founded and built a very successful dispute resolution firm specializing in complex financial disputes. He is an active member of the Chandler and Ahwatukee Chambers of Commerce. As a previous client of Office Evolution, Timmons saw the value of the services and space provided by Office Evolution. He earned his undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Actuarial Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
“The East Valley is an epicenter for small businesses, solo entrepreneurs and business expansion,” said Kyle Timmons. “With easy access to two different interstate highways, a welcoming, supportive community and great window lines and views, Office Evolution Phoenix is in a perfect location for entrepreneurs in the area, as well as those throughout the valley that need to visit clients and vendors in the East Valley.”
“As a former client of Office Evolution, I experienced first-hand what a different culture and atmosphere that Office Evolution provides. Besides the great facilities, the entrepreneurial culture is truly focused on helping members to be successful. Our operating philosophy isn’t just about providing a nice workspace. It’s about connecting, collaborating and networking with business owner members to help them overcome small business challenges to realize their full potential. One of the many other perks of being an Office Evolution member is 24/7 access to all facilities located throughout the U.S. - which will eventually include three locations in the greater Phoenix area and more than 70 throughout the country by year end.”
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.
