Regus Quickly Expands Across South Carolina, Adds Second Location in Greenville
Economic growth spurs demand for flexible working in one of SC’s primary business markets
GREENVILLE - (January 23, 2014) – Following the debut of its first business center in Greenville earlier this year, Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, is investing in the city once again with the opening of its second full service business center. Located in the heart of downtown, Regus’ facility at 220 North Main Street will help the growing population of mobile workers in Greenville who crave a professional work environment without the hassle or costs associated with long-term leases.
South Carolina’s strong economic performance and its ability to successfully recruit new industries have fueled an emerging start-up scene while at the same time it has attracted larger corporations to the state. Greenville, in particular, has benefitted from the state’s economic transformation.
“As the revitalization of Greenville continues, demand for our a la carte business services increases. This has led us to our quick expansion in the city,” explained Donna Scott, Regus’ Regional Vice President. “Professionals in the market are looking for space they can tailor to their specific requirements.”
Inside the center, customers will find a mix of open spaces purposely designed for collaborating along with offices and meeting rooms for times when individuals need to hunker down and concentrate or require a more private environment. Equally diverse is the collection of businesses that visit the center for the hour, day or longer.
“We cater to businesses of all sizes in Greenville and across our network of 1,700 locations,” said Scott. “From the start-up business looking for space to complement its home office, to the international firms looking to establish a local presence in Greenville, our clients are surrounded by like-minded professionals and have the opportunity to make new connections every day.”
The trend of flexible working is becoming broadly adopted by businesses of all sizes, which are looking for a cost-effective, efficient and collaborative environment that workers can access when traveling or when looking for an alternative work location away from their company’s head office.
As a member of the Regus network users can access any location, making it easy for mobile workers to be productive while traveling for business.
This year alone, Regus has opened four business hubs in South Carolina and has a total of six in the state. Additional centers can be found in Bluffton, Charleston, Columbia and Mt. Pleasant.
Regus fosters a collaborative environment for its customers. Common areas, including stocked kitchen spaces, open campus spaces and client networking events helps develop a sense of community for the workers using the space.
Regus is the global workplace provider.
Its network of more than 1,700 business centers in 100 countries provides convenient, high-quality, fully serviced spaces for people to work, whether for a few minutes or a few years. Companies like Google, Toshiba and GlaxoSmithKline choose Regus so that they can work flexibly and make their businesses more successful.
The key to flexible working is convenience and so Regus is opening wherever its 1.5million members want support – city centers, suburban districts, shopping centers and retail outlets, railway stations, motorway service stations and even community centers.
Founded in Brussels, Belgium, in 1989, Regus is based in Luxembourg and listed on the London Stock Exchange. For more information, please visit www.regus.com.
