SAN ANTONIO—Co-working franchisor Office Evolution is continuing its Texas expansion by signing leases for the brand's first locations in San Antonio and Austin. These will be Office Evolution's fifth and sixth locally owned locations in the Lone Star State. Both new locations will offer private offices, conference rooms, and shared workspace for small- to medium-sized businesses and employees of larger corporations who are working remotely.

Office Evolution's steady growth is fueled by the increased demand for flexible close-to-home co-working office space. Throughout the pandemic and especially with the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, businesses of all sizes are turning toward flexible workspace close to home as a solution to the traditional office setting.

This has become important as businesses look to avoid expensive lease entanglements for traditional office space. As employers realize that remote working is resulting in more productive employees, businesses are tapping into co-working spaces to provide employees with safe and collaborative environments that are closer to home.
