TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Office Evolution, a rapidly-growing B2B franchise offering co-working space, private office space, virtual offices, conference rooms and business services, has teamed up with Florida business executive, John Przedpelski, and his wife Karen, to open a new business center in Tampa, the first of three planned for Tampa and ten planned for Florida.
The new 7,700 square foot center located in the popular Westshore Business District area at 5401 W. Kennedy Blvd., Suite 100, offers small businesses and entrepreneurs professional, on-demand office space with 24/7 access. Members can choose from several packages that also include business mailing and telephone answering services and administrative support. Rental options include hourly, daily, month-to-month and longer-term leases. The Lincoln Center building amenities include free parking and an on-site mini-mart and lounge.
The bright first floor center offers easy access to Interstate 275 and the Veterans Expressway and has numerous hotels, shopping and restaurants nearby. It is five minutes from Tampa International Airport and is convenient to Tampa’s two major shopping malls. The center includes 32 private furnished offices, several dedicated desks, a community kitchen, a co-working business lounge and two conference rooms that can accommodate up to 8 people.
An open house to tour the facility is slated for Wednesday, April 25, 2018 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Tampa Chamber of Commerce and the Westshore Alliance will be on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception at 4:30 p.m.
John and Karen have been granted franchise rights to develop two additional centers in the Tampa Bay area. Prior to becoming an Office Evolution franchise owner, John was a successful IT executive and was most recently Senior Vice President and CIO for Masonite Int’l. Karen spent several years in public accounting and was the Controller of a private company in Tampa before taking time off to raise their children.
“Tampa has a dynamic entrepreneurial business community that will benefit from the great space and services that we offer,” said John Przedpelski. “Besides being in a fantastic location and offering bright, fresh contemporary office space, we’re not a “me-too” in the industry because our services are second to none. The hands-on concierge services that our business center managers provide is the catalyst that allows our members to focus on running their business. Our managers are hyper-focused on helping member overcome small business challenges and connect with other members to help them realize their full potential. One of the other great perks of being an Office Evolution member is 24/7 access to all facilities located throughout the U.S. – including the ten being developed in Florida.”
The market demand for co-working space, private furnished office space, virtual offices and business services is expected to continue its rapid growth trajectory as corporate America continues to outsource many jobs that can be performed more cost-effectively by contractors. The number of consultants, contractors, and so-called “solopreneurs” will have soared 50 percent between 2011 and 2018, to an estimated 24 million, per an annual workforce report by MBO Partners. Moreover, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the number of freelancers, temps, independent contractors and solopreneurs will grow from 30 percent of the workforce today to 40 percent of the total workforce over the next five years.
“Office Evolution members come from all different professions including attorneys, accountants, entrepreneurs and therapists – really anyone needing a place to hang their hat in a professional working environment – whether they need a place to pop in and check email, a conference room for meetings, or a dedicated office for a day, week, month, year or more,” said Przedpelski.
Office Evolution is a Colorado-based national B2B franchise offering co-working spaces, virtual office services and fully furnished offices and suites. The Company built and successfully operated seven business centers across the Colorado Front Range before beginning to franchise in 2012. To date, they have awarded 129 franchise locations throughout the United States. Please visit www.officeevolution.com for more company information.
