First of Two Office Evolution Business Centers Planned for Dallas/Ft. Worth to Open in Southlake
One of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S.(1) targets dynamic TX market prime for co-working space with plans for up to nine locations in major metro markets.
June 27, 2018 // Franchising.com // DALLAS/FORT WORTH, Texas - Office Evolution, a rapidly-growing B2B franchise offering co-working space, private office space, virtual offices, conference rooms and business services, has teamed up with local business leaders, Vicki and Bob Fox, to open a new business center in Southlake, the first of two locations to be developed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and nine in the state.
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. Members can choose from several packages that also include business mailing and telephone answering services and administrative support. Best of all, parking is free – and without the congestion of downtown traffic!
The bright, airy, second floor center is conveniently nestled in the heart of the Southlake Town Square shopping district within walking distance of numerous retailers and restaurants. The facility offers easy access to the Northwest Parkway and is minutes from Dallas-Ft. Worth Int’l airport (DFW). The center includes 26 private furnished offices, a community kitchen, a co-working lounge and two conference rooms that can accommodate from 6 to 25 people.
A grand opening to tour the facility is slated for June 28, 2018, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Southlake Chamber of Commerce will be on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception at 4:30 p.m. Register to attend at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/office-evolution-grand-opening-celebration-tickets-46658565024.
Vicki and Bob have been granted franchise rights to develop another center in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Bob is an entrepreneur himself, having operated as a consultant for several years helping companies grow their businesses. Prior to this, he spent 25+ years in finance and operational leadership roles with Halliburton. He earned his undergraduate degree in business from Southeast Missouri State University. Vicki was a surgical nurse in her past career.
“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.
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.
