We’re bursting with pride today at Office Evolution as we celebrate our sixteenth anniversary!
Office Evolution, which was founded in 2003 with our beautiful Boulder, Colorado location, has been growing steadily for over a decade. After making the decision to begin franchising in 2012, the company took flight with nine locations opening in 2017 and 25 additional locations opening in 2018. We currently have 62 locations open for business and another 80 in various stages of development.
There are no plans to stop growing any time soon either. In addition to the 22 locations planned for this year, Office Evolution is looking to add 35 in 2020 and at least 50 locations per year following 2020.
“What a great honor to see your business surpass 16 years of life,” Office Evolution Founder & CEO Mark Hemmeter said.
“Every member of our Ohana, which is a family in Hawaiian, is valued and appreciated and instrumental to Office Evolution’s success. What separates Office Evolution is our commitment to support a marketplace of entrepreneurs, solo-entrepreneurs, and micro-entrepreneurs not typically served by the flexible workspace model. Our locally owned, national network of workspaces is home for cost-conscious business owners living in the suburbs who need a place that enables, and more importantly, enhances their work. We are thrilled that our expansion is providing even more places for our community of dreamers to do their thing!”
The Coworking Industry Takes Note
This explosive growth has not escaped the notice of industry experts. That is why Office Evolution has been recognized by the Inc. 5000 list for Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America, as well as Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500.
This makes perfect sense, considering Office Evolution is the fourth largest operator and largest franchisor in the U.S. and is recognized both for its local ownership and for its resources and distribution as a national brand.
Coworking Is Hot and Office Evolution Sizzles at Sixteen
There are currently more than 24 million non-employer businesses in the U.S. and more than 3.5 million U.S. businesses with four employees or less. This all translates into a growing demand for shared office space, as workers look to achieve a good work/life balance and make economical office choices at the same time.
Office Evolution members reap the benefits of several different types of coworking spaces, including private offices, conference rooms, shared workspaces, and office services such as phone-answering, a dedicated business address, and mail and business support. In other words, Office Evolution offers the foundation solopreneurs and small firms need to build their businesses in the best way.
Each location is between 6,000-10,000 square feet, which includes an average of 23-40 private offices, 2-3 conference rooms and shared space for approximately 10-20 people.
