Office Evolution Brings Flexible Workspace to Jackson Metro Area
Local couple opens new coworking franchise in Flowood as demand for flexible workspace rises amid the pandemic
December 02, 2020 // Franchising.com // Louisville, Colo. - Office Evolution - the largest and fastest-growing coworking franchisor in the United States - has opened its first Mississippi location in Flowood, located minutes from Jackson. Fueled by an increased demand for workspace close-to-home, husband-and-wife duo Cliff and Angela Osbon are excited to provide local professionals in the Jackson area with a cost effective, productive and safe work environment.
Located at 10 Canebrake Blvd Suite 110, the new business is a short drive from downtown Jackson and offers a convenient location for professionals living in and outside of the city. The center provides local small-to-medium-sized business owners and remote workers of larger corporations with access to 30 private offices, two conference rooms, and shared workspace with a capacity for approximately 20 people.
“With the abrupt shift to remote work, we have noticed many working professionals weren’t equipped to work from home and are struggling to find a distraction-free environment,” said Angela. “We are happy to support people in the Jackson area who are trying to adapt to this new way of working. We offer a safe alternative that is conveniently close to home, but also a much more professional environment than working remotely from your dining room table.”
Prior to becoming an Office Evolution franchisee, Angela spent over 17 years working as a paralegal. The flexible office model has become increasingly popular with attorneys, and she looks forward to using her experience to build new connections with local professionals in the legal field. Cliff has an extensive background in healthcare and previously owned a regional specialized pharmacy business in Flowood. Very familiar with the business environment in Flowood and Jackson, Cliff knew that the area would be perfect for Office Evolution’s model, which focuses solely on suburban and secondary markets.
“This is the perfect location for professionals in Jackson and the surrounding suburbs,” said Cliff. “We are five minutes from the airport, the Flowood Conference Center, and plenty of restaurants and shopping, so not only is it convenient for remote workers, but also small business owners who want to operate out of our facility.”
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 significantly 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.
“We are proud to open our first Mississippi location thanks to Cliff and Angela, two professionals who truly understand what it means to be a part of our Ohana, which is Hawaiian for ‘family’,” stated Office Evolution Chief Operating Officer William Edmundson. “As the pandemic continues to disrupt how and where people work, demand for our concept is accelerating. People are tired of working from home and we are excited to see the Osbons provide employees and businesses in the Jackson area with flexible options that foster collaboration, community and innovation in a safe environment.”
