July 26, 2016 — LOUISVILLE, COLO.–Office Evolution, a national provider of executive suites, 24/7 co-working space, and other virtual support services, announced its 50th franchise agreement since launching this expansion model in late 2012. The newest franchise agreements were made with Tina Barcley and her upstate New York territories, Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse.
“Office Evolution is expanding to meet demand,” says Mark Hemmeter, Founder and CEO of Office Evolution. “We want to help entrepreneurs and small businesses grow with flexible, on-demand office space without adding significant investment or overhead expense.”
Office Evolution’s rapid growth reflects the changing trends of the modern workplace, and the growing need for co-working space with flexible contracts and hours. The company plans to augment its 21 open locations with 15 more, including at least one of Barcley’s by the end of 2016, almost doubling its existing number of business centers.
The need for more co-working spaces is evident when examining search trends over the last five years. According to The Instant Group, since 2011, the number of times the phrase “co-working” has been searched has risen 400 percent.
Office Evolution responds to two major growth trends in small business:
- According to deskmag.com, the co-working market across the world has increased by nearly 300 percent in five years.
- the number of “soloprenuers,” consultants and contractors in the workforce. This demographic, according to an annual workforce report by MBO Partners, is 40 million strong, despite a robust economic rebound and the addition of over 2.74 million payroll jobs. This number is expected to grow, with the average income of independent workers increasing 30 percent since 2011.
