International Workplace Group (IWG) has announced the launch of its franchise program in Canada which provides a unique opportunity for franchisees to enter the flexible workspace industry.
In recent years, flexible workspace—also known as co-working—has become a high-growth industry.
“Imagine being given the chance to work with previously successful franchise industries, such as restaurants or gyms, at the beginning of their growth explosions,” said the company’s director of franchise development, Steven McAnulty. “A similar or even larger opportunity awaits in the serviced office market. It’s a great opportunity to diversify from traditional franchise industries, and benefit from significant returns on investment (ROI).”
As part of the program, IWG offers comprehensive infrastructure to support franchisees in Canada throughout the life cycle of their investment. The global IWG franchise team works closely with its franchisees to ensure they have a framework to find the right location, design, and are able to grow their market footprint, with operational and marketing support.
The company is seeking qualified franchise partners with organizational and financial capabilities to open a minimum of five locations no smaller than 929 m2 (10,000 sf) over a two- to-three-years period.
These franchises should have proven sales, management, and entrepreneurial experience; franchisees and must be committed to uphold operational brand standards.
