Colorado-based coworking franchisor Office Evolution is expanding its California presence with a new development deal for coworking spaces in Santa Clara County, Calif. A local husband-and-wife team will own and operate the three new locations, which are intended to service the southwest region of the county. The first space is scheduled to open in early August, in the San Jose metro area.
Upon opening, Office Evolution Los Gatos will come complete with two conference rooms, 42 fully-furnished private offices, and lots of shared workspaces on the top floor of a two story building. The location boasts abundant natural light and great outdoor space. Well connected to Highway 17, the property offers free parking and is within walking distance of retail and dining establishments.
Benefits include complimentary coffee and tea, premium Wi-Fi, professional live phone answering service, a prestigious business address, conference room rental discounts, access to a professional and social community for valuable networking, as well as access to any of the Office Evolution business centers—nationwide, 24/7.
The company’s business model is unique in the industry: based on local owners who are committed to serving their community, backed by the resources and distribution of a national brand and network. This new expansion project is part of nearly 80 locations that Office Evolution currently has in various stages of development. With 64 coworking locations open across the U.S. from coast to coast, the firm has positioned itself as the largest coworking franchise network in the country.
Office Evolution COO William Edmundson stated: “We are excited to have this wonderful couple sign on for three locations in Los Gatos. We are growing our presence in California as more business owners are taking full advantage of our wonderful services. Having this fantastic husband-and-wife team represent us in Los Gatos is an honor for us, and a benefit to the community.”
San Jose ranks among the top cities for startups in the U.S., leading cities with a population above 1 million in terms of tech education-certified working-age population. Boasting the eighth-largest growth in the number of nonemployer startups, the central city in Silicon Valley is still very much an entrepreneur’s market, ripe for continued expansion of the coworking sector.
