Regus Opens First Business Center in Metairie as Demand Rises for Flexible Working

NEW ORLEANS, La. - (Nov 16, 2012) – In response to the growing demand for flexible workplaces in New Orleans’ suburbs, Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, is expanding its presence in the area with the opening of first suburban location at 3900 N. Causeway Boulevard in Metairie.

“We’ve been looking to expand in the New Orleans area for some time and given Metairie’s proximity to the city and residential neighborhoods, this was the ideal location for our customers,” said Jeff Doughman, Regus’ Regional Vice President. “The center offers a prime business address, has spectacular views of Lake Pontchartrain and has workspaces that can be customized to suit any business’ requirements.”

Rapidly emerging as a preferred way to work, flexible workspaces are more adaptable to modern business needs allowing individuals to access a professional location as well as business services on demand. In addition to the new Metairie location, Regus has a business center in the heart of New Orleans’ on St. Charles Avenue.

Regus’ model provides entrepreneurs, small- to medium-sized businesses as well as international companies a range of options, including fully equipped offices and virtual offices as well as meeting rooms and business lounges. Terms are flexible allowing clients to choose the amount of space they use and the length of time they stay.

“People are looking for better balance between their professional and personal lives. As a result, work is being done at different times of the day at different locations. In addition to working from their offices, many individuals are working at home and, in increasing numbers, from alternate locations,” said Doughman. “Demand for our services, particularly in highly populated suburban markets is giving local professionals access to the space and resources they need while at the same time reducing their commuting time into congested downtown areas.”
