Office Evolution is setting itself apart from traditional coworking office perks seen in this workplace trend. CEO Mark Hemmeter wanted to serve suburban, 35 and over consumers as opposed to targeting the younger, startup heavy demographics.
Founded in 2003, the company began franchising itself in 2012 and quickly opened 50 locations across the country.
“We like to say we’re “owners to the third”: I’m an owner, our franchisees are owners, and our clients are owners of their businesses,” said Hemmeter. “We’re helping our customers build their small business, and their small business has helped our franchise.”
Since many members are first-time business owners, they can start with level one memberships that are $79 a month. As their company grows, their memberships grow as well.
Each office reflects the city where it resides, such as the Nashville location that features photography of the city and the Summit, N.J., that has multiple covers of The New Yorker on its walls.
