Office Evolution Opens Fifth Location in North Carolina Market
Coworking franchisor opens second location in Greensboro-High Point area
November 14, 2019 // Franchising.com // Louisville, Colo. - Office Evolution, the largest coworking franchisor in the U.S., continues its expansion in North Carolina by opening its newest office space in High Point. The location opened on October 23.
Located at 3980 Premier Drive, the 6,760 square-foot center is operated by Peggy Barron-Antolin. The new office space will provide High Point business owners with access to 26 offices and two conference rooms. This will be Barron-Antolin’s second of three planned Office Evolution spaces. Her first location opened in December of 2017 in Greensboro and she is eyeing other cities in the Triad area for her third location, which she hopes to open within the next few years.
“High Point is an up-and-coming city with a blossoming small business community,” stated Barron-Antolin. “I truly feel that Office Evolution can help these local businesses take their operations to the next level and help them reach their goals. We look forward to being a part of the growth in this wonderful city.”
Before becoming an Office Evolution location owner, Barron-Antolin spent over 30 years in the engineering field. She most recently worked as a program manager for Ecolab and has leadership and management experience from her lead engineering positions at Goodyear Tire and Rubber. Barron-Antolin’s Greensboro Office Evolution location has provided her with a wealth of knowledge to help her better serve small business owners and independent employers.
“Having opened an Office Evolution location before, I know how to best serve the local business community and help elevate their operations,” said Barron-Antolin. “I’m passionate about helping entrepreneurs work towards their dreams, and Office Evolution gives me the opportunity to support the local business community.”
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.
“Our Ohana is what helps Office Evolution best serve our clients,” Office Evolution COO and Global Workspace Association Board Member William Edmundson said. “Peggy is passionate about her community and will use her strong entrepreneurial spirit to provide High Point business owners with services that will foster growth within the High Point business community.”
With dedicated work spaces, including private offices, conference rooms and shared workspace, Office Evolution has solutions for every business. There are also phone-answering, address & mail services and other professional resources to help small-business owners exceed their goals.
“Peggy’s dedication to the Office Evolution brand and serving business owners in the High Point and Greensboro community is what Office Evolution is all about,” said Mark Hemmeter, founder and CEO of Office Evolution. “We are excited for Peggy to open her High Point Office Evolution location and are proud of her commitment to be part of our Ohana.”
