United Franchise Group, which already includes multiple award-winning franchise concepts including Signarama, Fully Promoted (formerly known as EmbroidMe) and SuperGreen Solutions, has added yet another concept to its lineup of brands: Venture X, a premier provider of membership-based, flexible workspace featuring modern design and boutique, concierge-style services appealing to a wide range of professionals within an inspiring, diverse and collaborative “community” atmosphere.
The way people work is changing at lightning-speed and Venture X is catering to the needs of that market. By 2020, estimates predict fully 40 percent of the U.S. workforce will be comprised of entrepreneurs, independent contractors and others seeking a workplace environment that removes them from the distractions of home or traditional offices while providing a rich environment of like-minded people where they can network and make valuable work and social connections.
“Venture X is far more than just a place to work”, said Ray Titus, CEO of United Franchise Group. “It’s a local community that is inspiring, diverse and collaborative. Members not only have a sense of belonging, but can also obtain customers through their association at the location. That’s why it’s a perfect fit for United Franchise Group-we are the global leader for entrepreneurs but at our core we believe in personal relationships, face to face meetings and building communities. Venture X is the perfect opportunity at the perfect time.”
Venture X President Tom Weber has a long and successful background in commercial real estate banking, as well as in owning and managing large office/retail buildings that included “executive suite” facilities. “Venture X has taken this concept to a new level with its ‘co-working’ environment,” Weber said. “This is clearly the wave of the future.”
The flagship Venture X location is in Naples, Fla., with numerous franchises sold throughout the country and the first expected to open in San Antonio, Texas. The brand’s first global unit in Canada is also expected to open soon. Venture X projects opening more than 40 domestic and three international locations in 2017.
