How did we get here?

17 years ago, a budding entrepreneur became inspired. Mark Hemmeter identified an emerging segment of the commercial real estate market and said, “I can make this better.”.

He set out to build a lifestyle focused and member driven flexible workspace that was affordable, closer to home, and inspired. A place where members had the flexibility to work efficiently and enjoy family activities.

So, in 2003, Mark fearlessly launched Office Evolution, offering convenient office space solutions in suburban markets via a unique subscription-based model.

Mark and COO William Edmundson hired managers who also came coworking industry. They designed Office Evolution locations with one simple question: “What amenities would we want from a coworking location?”

The result is well-received and successful Office Evolution centers now operating in key suburban areas and secondary markets throughout the U.S.

Today, as more individuals seek safe, secure, and affordable places to conduct business and outside of their homes, the services offered by Office Evolution have been deemed essential.

We are uniquely prepared to fulfill the increased demand with qualified franchising partners.
