Office Evolution Opens First Washington State Location
As demand continues to rise, coworking franchise opens newest location in suburban Seattle
November 04, 2020 // Franchising.com // Louisville, Colo. - Office Evolution - the largest and fastest-growing coworking franchisor in the United States – is continuing its rapid growth by opening its first Washington location just outside Seattle in the suburb of Bellevue. Driven in part by the Covid-19 pandemic, Office Evolution has seen a steady increase in demand for its close-to-home coworking locations that offer convenient and safe workspace for remote workers and independent employers. This new location is owned and operated by Bellevue residents Frank and Lisa Holland and their son Alex. To celebrate the opening of the new location, Office Evolution Bellevue is scheduling tours of the workspace and is offering a free trial for potential new members to try out an office for the day or a conference room for an hour, if available. A formal grand opening event will be planned for 2021.
Located at 13555 SE 36th Street, the 12,753-square-foot center will provide local small- to medium-sized business owners and remote workers of larger corporations with access to 54 private offices, two conference rooms and shared workspace areas with a capacity for 19 people. This is the first of three Office Evolution locations that the Hollands are signed to open in the Seattle area. They are looking at sites in Redmond and Bothell, among other cities for their remaining two locations.
“The Bellevue area is the perfect community for Office Evolution,” stated Lisa. “There are hundreds of business owners and remote workers searching for convenient, workspace close-to-home, and with Washington still in Phase 2, there are thousands of people looking for a safe environment where they can get work done and gain inspiration.”
Throughout the pandemic, Office Evolution’s national network of locally operated locations has provided remote workers and small- to medium-sized business owners with access to safe and flexible workspace where they can innovate, collaborate and network to enhance business performance. The brand’s nationwide presence has grown drastically during the pandemic, as businesses of all sizes shift their focus towards flexible workspace to avoid getting tied up in expensive leases for traditional office space. This transition from traditional workspace to more flexible options in suburban markets where people live and work has positioned Office Evolution perfectly for growth.
“Our brand’s expansion is a testament to the strength of our concept and the power of our Ohana – which is Hawaiian for ‘family’ – culture,” stated Office Evolution Chief Operating Officer William Edmundson. “While some businesses faltered, the continued interest in our brand has led to our growth in the Pacific Northwest. We are excited for the Hollands to be sharing our brand with the Bellevue business community and we are proud of how they are continuing to provide remote workers and solopreneurs with access to safe, flexible workspace.”
