Navy veteran signs deal for two coworking spaces in South Florida
October 25, 2019 // Franchising.com // Office Evolution, the largest coworking franchisor in the U.S., is adding a new location in Plantation, Florida. This will be the brand’s fifth deal in Florida, joining existing locations in Jacksonville and Tampa.
The first location is slated to open in February of 2020, and will be located at 261 N University Drive in Plantation and is part of the new $350 million Plantation Walk mixed-use development. The 10,250-square-foot-center will be owned and operated by local residents Eddie and Mitzy Uribazo. The Uribazos are eyeing Pembroke Pines, Sunrise, and Weston, among others as potential destinations for their second location.
“We are excited to be adding two more locations in Florida,” said Mark Hemmeter, founder and CEO of Office Evolution. “The Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale area is packed with independent employers and small businesses that are ready to elevate their operations and we can’t wait to serve them. Community-focused partners such as Eddie and Mitzy help make that happen. We are proud to welcome them to our Ohana (Hawaiian for ‘family’).”
Eddie, a United States Navy veteran, spent 24 years with Johnson Controls Inc., an HVAC corporation, where he worked as a system application engineer, a project engineer and a senior project manager. For 13 years, he worked as a senior project manager, where he was responsible for managing multi-million-dollar operations and executing major systems projects. Eddie also has experience as an entrepreneur, having founded his own controls company. He believes his management experience coupled with his entrepreneurial knowledge will be valuable in helping small businesses and independent employers take their operations to the next level.
