Shared Workspace Company ‘The Work Lodge’ Seeks Growth Through Franchising

Houston-Based Shared Co-working Space Concept Poised to Capitalize on Booming Industry; Set to Bring Flexible Workspace Options to Local Entrepreneurs and Businesses

October 29, 2018 // // HOUSTON - Having recently signed its first franchise agreement in Fort Worth, Texas, The Work Lodge, an all-inclusive flexible workspace concept, is gearing up for national expansion with the announcement of its franchise opportunity. Fueled by the nearly 65 million freelancers, contract workers and entrepreneurs across the nation, the brand is perfectly positioned for aggressive development with two locations currently open and operating with two under development.

Founded in 2015 in Houston to fulfill a vision of constructing a creative, energizing workspace, The Work Lodge offers a variety of all-inclusive workspace services such as:

  • Private and virtual offices as well as co-working spaces and conference rooms
  • Space for teams from 1 to 100
  • Positive and healthy environments for solopreneurs, start-ups and larger corporations
  • Unique designs featuring custom-made furniture, cul-de-sac hallway layouts and common areas, with purposeful intent behind every single piece

Fully designed by Founder and CEO Mike Thakur, The Work Lodge displays vibrant, colorful walls and accessories layered on top of the brand’s signature ‘Work Lodge White.’

“As entrepreneurs and corporations search for flexible workspaces, Work Lodge is able to provide our members with a holistic approach by removing the friction of facilities and growth, freeing entrepreneurs and businesses to focus on building their dreams,” said Thakur. “Our mission at Work Lodge is to build, maintain and grow reimagined workspaces for everyone – from the solopreneurs to fortune 500 companies – while also giving back to the community.”

The total initial investment to open a Work Lodge ranges from $300,000-$1.5 million. The Work Lodge seeks franchise partners in new markets and markets where The Work Lodge is already present for multi- and single-unit agreements.

In addition to providing top-tier all-inclusive shared workspaces, The Work Lodge launched The Gabriel Project with the noble cause to shine light on the unloved, overlooked and unwanted in society. The Foundation funds programs focused around four worthy causes: building children’s homes in India, fighting human trafficking, feeding those in need and providing micro-assistance to families and community members with focused, unavoidable needs. The Gabriel Project is fully funded by Work Lodge and its partnering businesses. To learn more, visit

“The Gabriel Foundation is our way of changing the world,” added Thakur. “Because shared co-working spaces are in demand, potential Work Lodge franchisees have the opportunity to capitalize on an industry that hasn’t yet been exploited while giving back to those in need. We’re also able to provide Work Lodge franchisees with unmatched support ranging from site selection to lease negotiations to build-outs, we walk this process together, and do business with a greater purpose.”
