What is a Virtual Office member?

Virtual office members allow franchisees to drive revenue without adding additional square footage


Virtual franchises and office memberships make Office Evolution stand out from the crowd. These memberships allow franchisees to potentially increase revenue-per-square-foot. That’s because offices and common meeting spaces are shared by dozens of people. How? They only stop into the office when they need to host a meeting, which they book in advance. By sharing space, they can save a significant amount of money. By making the same square footage available to dozens of businesses, you can generate significant membership revenue.

In many ways, Office Evolution’s virtual franchise model is similar to the business model of gyms that will have 20 treadmills, 20 exercise bikes, 10 ellipticals, and 1,000 members. Members happily pay to have access to equipment that would otherwise be out of reach. Meanwhile, gym owners generate significant recurring revenue from members who want access to state-of-the-art workout tools.

Office Evolution offers similar value to virtual office members, and members reward franchisees with a stream of residual income in the form of membership fees. Since not all virtual office members access the location at any given time, you can add dozens of virtual members to an Office Evolution location.

The virtual office membership model makes the Office Evolution business much more scalable. Just because you have only 20 offices doesn’t mean you’re limited to 20 members. You might have 50 or 100. Eventually, you’ll want to open another Office Evolution location to give members more private executive suites they can access as their businesses grow — but the virtual office membership model gives you the flexibility to increase your client roster and revenue even before you start building additional locations.

What we offer virtual office members

Virtual office members choose from a range of services, some of which are provided by the Business Center Manager for their locations, and others that are provided by Office Evolution’s centralized call center.
