San Francisco’s flexible office market is the most saturated in the country, yet continues to grow with coworking giants such as WeWork and Regus taking up 50% of the office market nationally. Amid all of this, Montreal-based flexible office company Breather is expanding its footprint in San Francisco.
Founded in 2013, the firm offers on-demand meeting rooms and private offices for major clients such as Lyft and Airbnb at its 500 locations, 70 of which are in San Francisco.
The company started off with a focus on offering on-demand spaces that were typically less than 500 square feet, but now it offers private offices that range anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet for single companies.
“It’s incredibly attractive to the types of companies in San Francisco, which tend to be growth stage companies that need that flexibility,” said Bryan Murphy, CEO.
Breather differs from coworking companies as it targets firms that have outgrown coworking spaces. Even notable operators have started branching out to provide these services, such as Headquarters by WeWork, which offers private offices for mid-sized companies.
