Coworking Giant Office Evolution Expanding Southwest Florida Presence
With demand for flexible, and affordable convenient workspace rising, Office Evolution continues its rapid expansion by signing deal for first Sarasota location
January 19, 2021 // Franchising.com // Louisville, Colo. - Office Evolution, the largest provider of locally owned and operated flexible workspaces across the nation, is continuing its growth in Florida by awarding the brand’s first Sarasota area development deal. The new Office Evolution location in Sarasota will offer private offices, conference rooms, and shared workspace for small- to medium-sized businesses and employees of larger corporations who are working remotely.
Office Evolution’s steady growth is fueled by the increased demand for flexible, close-to-home coworking office space. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses of all sizes are pivoting away from expensive real estate in densely packed cities and are turning towards flexible workspace close-to-home as a solution to the traditional office setting. As employers realize that remote working is resulting in more productive employees, businesses are tapping in to coworking spaces to provide employees with a safe and collaborative environment that is closer to home.
This new location will be owned and operated by Sarasota residents Jill Langevin and Randy Flaman. The husband-and-wife duo are eyeing sites in downtown/central Sarasota and Lakeland, among other areas in the greater Sarasota area. The brand’s first Sarasota location will join two existing locations in the greater Tampa metro area, as well as two locations in Jacksonville, and an additional location in Plantation.
“We know that now more than ever, business owners and remote workers are looking for a safe place to work that provides flexibility and convenience,” stated Jill. “Our Office Evolution location will provide us the opportunity to fill a growing niche of workers looking to convert to a more flexible workspace. After learning more about the Office Evolution concept and the brand’s leadership and experience in the industry, we knew that it was the perfect concept for us. Sarasota is the perfect market for Office Evolution and we are looking forward to becoming a key part of the local business community.”
Since the start of Covid-19, Office Evolution has been open and providing members with a clean and safe environment to get work done and drive their businesses forward. Office Evolution’s commitment to business continuity for its members has helped forge a strong sense of loyalty from its members.
“As Covid-19 continues to change how we work, Office Evolution continues to expand and see success thanks to our unique model,” stated Office Evolution Chief Marketing and Development Office Andrea Pirrotti-Dranchak. “The nature of work for people and businesses has changed. As a result, companies are shifting towards convenient, cost-effective, flexible workspace, and Office Evolution will continue to provide them with a safe place to innovate, network, and get work done. Jill and Randy are the perfect team to grow our presence in Sarasota, and their values align perfectly to help us continue to inspire Dreamers, Risk-Takers, and Doers.”
