Office Evolution Signs Deal to Open Three More Austin Locations
Coworking franchise’s rapid growth continues in Austin with six locations in development
July 31, 2019 // Franchising.com // Louisville, Colo. - Office Evolution, the largest coworking franchisor in the U.S., is further expanding its footprint in Texas by signing a development deal for three locations in Austin, Texas.
This coworking business is owned and operated by the husband-and-wife team of Tyler and Rachel Jensen and will service small-business owners and clients in Austin and the surrounding suburbs. The couple has signed a development deal for three locations in the Austin area. There are currently six total in development for the Austin area.
“The coworking industry is undergoing rapid growth, so as prospective business owners, we figured this would be a great opportunity to enter this industry,” said Tyler. “After meeting with the Office Evolution team, we knew this would be a great opportunity for us and a perfect fit for Austin. The team at Office Evolution has been very engaging and supportive throughout the whole process, and communication with other Office Evolution franchisees has been great.”
Tyler has more than 20 years of experience working for a large Fortune 500 technology company in Austin. During his time there, he has provided financial leadership and guidance, corporate planning support, product development, sales, and marketing. Rachel works in the financial industry for a Fortune 500 financial company in Austin, and is also very involved in volunteer activities within the local community. They were attracted to Office Evolution’s semi-absentee management model as it will allow them both to continue working full-time while they further develop their three Office Evolution locations.
“We couldn’t be happier to add Tyler and Rachel into our Office Evolution ‘Ohana,’” Office Evolution Founder and CEO Mark Hemmeter said. “Austin is filled with thriving businesses, and we know that the Jensens will do great things to help the local business community grow and prosper.”
Office Evolution, with 64 locations open and nearly 80 in various stages of development, is the largest coworking franchise and the fourth largest network in the U.S. The model is based on local owners who are committed to serving their community, backed by the resources and distribution of a national brand and network is unique to the category. With more than 24 million non-employer businesses in the U.S. and more than 3.5 million U.S. businesses with four employees or less, demand for shared office space is high.
“As a proud Texan and a proud member of the Office Evolution family, I’m personally happy to see this growth in Austin,” Office Evolution COO and Global Workspace Association Board Member William Edmundson said. “I went to high school in Austin and I know what a wonderful community it is. We are excited to welcome Tyler and Rachel, and we know our wonderful business owners will thrive in their buildings.”
With dedicated work spaces, including private offices, conference rooms and shared workspace, Office Evolution has solutions for every business. There are also phone-answering services, address & mail services and other professional capabilities to make each small-business owner exceed their goals.
